Showaddywaddy kept rock’n’roll alive as Christmas came early at the Wulfrun Hall last night.
By the end of their performance in front of an enthusiastic crowd last night, members of the audience were invited on stage to get up close and personal with the stars of the show.
The rockers staged the latest leg of their Greatest Hits tour with a mixture of their own hits and other iconic songs of the time, which gave an overview that was easy to enjoy.
The front-of-house foursome exemplified the music of their time – all capable of of playing the guitar and singing in equal measure with gusto.
Cover wise, the likes of Dambusters, Come On Everybody, Angel Eyes, Summertime Blues and Jailhouse Rock were the cream of a bountiful crop.
Of their own material, Three Steps To Heaven, A Little Bit Of Soap, You Got What It Takes and Sweet Little Rock’n’Roller was the pick of what they do best.
The purported last track of the evening was the one we had all been waiting for, the wildly popular Under The Moon Of Love, their only No 1 from 1976.
Showaddywaddy and Rock’n’Roll lived to fight another day.
