Featuring

Leo Sayer

Leo Sayer appearing at this event

Leo Sayer almost needs no introduction. He is held in great esteem as a live performer and recording artist by all age groups - from 6 to 60. This is as much due to his appearing famously with the Muppets, the Wiggles and on the Charlie's Angels Soundtrack, as the countless hit songs he has written and recorded throughout his 40 plus years career. In the international music charts there have been more than twenty top ten singles and five top ten albums in his illustrious recording career. Add to this the hits written for Roger Daltrey, Cliff, Three Dog Night, Tina Turner, Gene Pitney, Jennifer Warnes, and both Stella and Dolly Parton. It proves his prowess as an internationally acclaimed and talented songwriter. Now Leo is based in Australia, where he is busier and in more demand than ever.

Slade

Slade appearing at this event

Chart topping '70s glam rockers touring with original members Dave Hill and Don Powell. Although perhaps best known for a certain Christmas song, with anthems like 'Coz I Luv U', 'Cum On Feel The Noize', 'Mama Weer All Crazee Now', 'Look Wot U Dun' and other misspelt classics, their incredible back catalogue truly demonstrates that Slade are for life, not just for Christmas!

John Coghlan appearing at this event

John was the drummer with Status Quo for over a decade. John Coghlan joined Francis Rossi and Alan Lancaster in their newly-formed band in 1962. By 1983, having left Status Quo, John decided it was time to put together new bands Diesel and Stranger, before eventually forming John Coghlan's Quo during the late 1990s. The band has since toured Europe and the UK successfully for several years with various line-ups. The current band since 2010 (previously performing as The John Coghlan Band) consists of John on Drums with Baz Barry, Mick Hughes and Pete Knight from NWOBHM Boogie Band ‘Predatür’ completing the line-up. The band performs many of the Status Quo hits and favourites from the Coghlan years 1962 - 1981.
