Audiences can expect madcap mayhem and unusual stunts from rock veteran John Otway when he makes a welcome return to The Lights, Friday 4th September.
Singer-songwriter John Otway has built himself a large cult audience through his extensive touring, surreal sense of humour and self-deprecating underdog persona.
Otway dubs himself ‘rock’ n ‘roll’s greatest failure’ after his many unsuccessful attempts to produce a second hit single to follow his 1977 classic Really Free (recorded with Wild Willy Barrett). 25 years later, he finally managed it and was back on Top of The Pops with the wonderful disco pastiche, ‘Bunsen Burner’.
Otway was also a special guest in the final episode of the BBC comedy The Young Ones.
More recently, his ‘Beware of the Flowers, I’m sure they’re going to get you yeah’was voted the seventh greatest lyric of all time in a BBC poll, beating the likes of Paul Simon and Bob Dylan!
Anyone who hasn’t see Otway before will see some stunts from a man old enough to know better…..and be surprised at just what a showman and musician really lies underneath the tomfoolery.
Show starts at 7.45pm on Friday 4th September. Tickets priced at £12 when bought in advance and £14 on the night.
