Show-addywaddy must go on and on

ADVERTISED as the “world’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll band Showaddywaddy are heading back to Greater Manchester in May.

They’re certainly one of the most durable and enduring acts, having started touring in 1973.



A string of hits include: ‘Under the Moon of Love’, ‘Pretty Little Angel Eyes’ and ‘Three Steps to Heaven’.

Some 33 years on Showaddywaddy were voted the ‘hardest working band’ of 2016 and they’ve already got gigs booked in for 2018.

Their records speak for themselves: 23 Top 40 hit singles including 10 top five hits, and 15 massive selling albums.

They appeared more than 50 times on Top of the Pops plus Royal Variety performances, including one to the delight of the Queen Mother who actually requested to meet the band post-performance.

They were bill toppers at the prestigious Golden Orpheus World Music Festival before a staggering TV audience of 300 million – making history by becoming the first western-world band to be screened live in Communist Cuba.

Well into the 21st Century the demand for these legendary performers is every bit as strong.

Now they’re coming to Sale Waterside Arts Centre on Friday, May 25.

And we have teamed up with promoters, MP Productions, to offer a pair of tickets to the show.

A: Football
