Return for only the second occasion that all original members have performed together
One of very few bands to have caused an actual riot, such was the screaming fan frenzy they incited, The Beatstalkers were Scotland's first real pop phenomenon. Combining blues/soul rarities with original material (and the odd early David Bowie composition), they came tantalisingly closeto full-scale stardom in the mid-1960s, leaving a handful of cult-classic songs and cherished memories that eventually led to their first Barrowland reunion in 2005 - this being only the second occasion that all original members have performed together again.
Appearing with The Beatstalkers will be special guest Hamish Stuart. Having been the lead guitarist and falsetto voice of Glasgow funk legends Average White Band, he has had his fair share of hits too. After they split he joined the bands of two Beatles (Paul and Ringo), played with Aretha Franklin and wrote for Smokey Robinson and Diana Ross. Expect some Average White Band songs, as well as Stuart’s solo material.
Also added to the bill are DJs from Glasgow’s Friday Street Club, playing a broad range of Mod records, Zoot Money, Fraser Watson (The Poets) and The Beatroots.
Please note that this event was originally scheduled to take place at The Barrowland Ballroom. Original tickets are still valid and the box office has contacted all patrons.
Age Restrictions: over 14s only and under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
