This tour marks the 50th Anniversary of Showaddywaddy. ‘The Greatest Rock & Roll Band In The World’ is a bold statement but Showaddywaddy has lived up to that title for the last 5 decades!


Formed in 1973 in Leicester from several local bands, they have sold more than 20 million records and have toured all corners of the World extensively.


Their 50th Anniversary Concert will be a dynamic and uplifting show featuring their greatest hits, many of which reached number one in the pop charts of Europe. ‘Under The Moon of Love’, ‘Three Steps to Heaven’, ‘Hey Rock & Roll’, ‘When’, ‘Blue Moon’, ‘Pretty Little Angel Eyes’ and many, many more.


So come and join the ‘Dancin’ Party’… ‘You’ve Got What It Takes’!



Long established as Europe's most successful ever exponents of retro-inspired rock & roll, SHOWADDYWADDY’s record of achievements spanning 5 decades truly sets them apart from their contemporaries and their peers.


The band’s extraordinary voyage began back in 1973, when courtesy of an impromptu ‘jam session,’ the original eight man lineup chanced upon an instant musical chemistry, the likes of which immediately grabbed the small audience’s attention, perhaps suggestive of things yet to come.


In the next decade a staggering 23 Top 40 hit singles followed, including Top 5 hits: “Under The Moon of Love,” “When,” “You Got What It Takes,” “3 Steps To Heaven,” and “Hey Rock & Roll,” to name but a few, which eclipsing all expectations went on to grace the charts in more than thirty territories.

The success story kept on growing:


More than 30 million records sold worldwide.


15 massive selling albums (including a prestigious Christmas number 1 in 1978).


In excess of 500 television appearances, including more than 50 Top of the Pops performances, plus their very own BBC TV special in 1980.


Innumerable industry awards!


Royal command performances (one to the delight of the Queen Mother - who actually requested to meet the band post-performance).


Bill toppers at the prestigious Golden Orpheus World Music Festival in 1982 before an astonishing TV audience in excess of 300 million people - breaking down political barriers in the process by becoming the first ever western-world band to be screened live in Communist Cuba!
