Few tribute bands can genuinely claim to have a rock star in its ranks. But the British Invasion Show – celebrating hits from the sixties – has just that in front man, Johnny Warman. The show is coming to Brookside Theatre, Romford, on Saturday 17 March.
Johnny was signed to Ringo Starr’s record label, and had a string of hits in the 1970s and 1980s, including ‘Screaming Jets’, which featured Peter Gabriel.
“The British Invasion Show celebrates the years 1964 to 1966 when British bands invaded the US charts,” said Johnny, who has also worked with Elton John. “We perform all the classics by bands like The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Who, The Kinks, The Pretty Things, Dave Clarke 5, The Moody Blues and early Pink Floyd. The audience gets a two-hour show, and we pack in as much as we can. We make sure people get their money’s worth.”
