CHAS & DAVE
JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR
30 OCT ALBERT HALL, NOTTINGHAM
2 NOV - 7 NOV BIRMINGHAM HIPPODROME
In the tradition of The Kinks and the Small Faces and around the same time as Ian Dury and Squeeze, Chas and Dave wrote and recorded exceptionally witty songs about life in London, performed with a strong affection for all things English and reminiscent of many of the great Music Hall artists many years previously. In their case however, the musical accompaniment to their sharply observant material was neither rock nor punk but solid, no-nonsense rock n roll style which had been their background and inspiration! Chas and Dave disbanded in 2009 following the retirement of Dave Peacock after his wife's death. However, In 2010 the boys announced their return to the live circuit due to huge public support.
Jesus Christ Superstar exploded onto the musical scene in 1971 - stunning audiences and changing the face of musical theatre forever. Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's rock opera tells the story of the last seven days in the life of Jesus through an extraordinary, groundbreaking score.
CITY LIFE & COUNTY LIVING
2 NOV ROCK CITY, NOTTINGHAM
Newcomer Jess Glynne will perform at Nottingham's Rock City following the release of her stunning debut album. Jess's album 'I Cry When I Laugh' dropped on August 14th via Atlantic Records. The album documents Jess's life since 'the happiest and saddest day of my life' – when she signed her record contract, but was also broken hearted at the end of a two-year relationship that made her question everyone and everything. But Jess has taken a different approach to the now standard break-up album, 'I wanted this record to be about hope,' she says.
As compelling today as it was at its inception over forty years ago, Jesus Christ Superstar has some of musical theatre's most legendary songs from I Don't Know How to Love Him, Everything's Alright and Gethsemane through to, of course, Superstar.
