Adrian Edmondson & The Bad Shepherds + John Otway + Trevor Moss And Hannah-Lou
Following a quick tour of Australia in the Spring and festival appearances planned for the Summer, Adrian Edmondson, Martin Allcock and Troy Donockley will be back on the road with a new UK headline tour in November/December 2013.
The Bad Shepherds is an exciting collaboration conceived by comedian Adrian Edmondson featuring Martin Allcock (from Fairport Convention and Jethro Tull), Troy Donockley (renowned for his work with Iona, Maddy Prior and Midge Ure), plus rising Irish star violinist and vocalist Eimear Bradley.
The Bad Shepherds revisit punk era classics and add arrangements inspired by traditional music. Expect to hear folked-up versions of hits by The Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Stranglers, The Jam, Sham 69, The Undertones, The Buzzcocks, The Ramones, The Specials, Talking Heads, Squeeze, etc.
Adrian Edmondson & The Bad Shepherds tour dates
John first achieved notoriety with his eye-watering performance on Old Grey Whistle Test and subsequent hit single 'Really Free' in 1977. A heady mix of blind ambition and rank incompetence was to keep this microstar shining for almost two decades despite Otway's ability to turn any situation to his own disadvantage.
His autobiography 'Rock and Roll's Greatest Failure' out sold, by a factor of ten, all the records he had released since his hit, and now Otway is struggling to live up to this billing - selling out London Astoria for his 2000th gig in 1993, filling the Royal Albert Hall in 1998, and charting at number 9 with his 2002 single 'Bunsen Burner'. For John 'Two Hits' Otway, 'the future's bright; the future's Otway!
