Never miss another 'John Otway' show
John Otway + Wild Willy Barrett
""Never mind The sex Pistols - The real spirit of 1977 can be found in the persons of Mr John Otway and Mr Willy Barrett"
The Herald, Edinburgh Festival Revue
Their last visit to The Ferry in 2011 is hailed by many of our regulars as one of our top ten gigs. Their manic approach and self-deprecating humour combined with a generous sprinkle of sheer unadulterated talent provide a performance of epic proportions."
Info provided by the Event Organiser
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!
