Never miss another 'Adrian Edmondson & The Bad Shepherds' show
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.
This event takes place at O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
The Bad Shepherds play punk songs on folk instruments. Not as a gag, but because they really like the noise. They think the songs are better than people remember. They love folk instruments. It works. They do songs by The Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Stranglers, The Jam, Sham 69, The Undertones, The Ramones, The Buzzcocks, The Specials, Talking Heads, Squeeze and others, even Kraftwerk! Alright, they're not all punk, but they come from roughly the same era.

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!
