Saturday 7th September 7.30pm- The Rock of Ages Experience. The Rock of Ages Experience are looking forward to appearing at The Memorial Theatre with  their uplifting and high energy musical tribute to the smash hit Hollywood film and musical,  ‘Rock of Ages’. The idea for this show came about because they had seen the film and loved it, then saw the stage show which they also enjoyed, but of course in the stage show they only play a small section of the songs, and they wanted to hear more of the music.  

From this they decided to add in even more iconic hits from the era, so not only do you get songs from the show, but great hits like ‘Living on a Prayer’   ‘Sweet Child of Mine’  ‘Dead Ringer for Love’  ‘You Give Love a Bad Name’  ‘Eye of the Tiger’ ‘Don’t Stop me Now’   ‘I Want it All’ and many more.

The rock classics of the eighties go from strength to strength, as they perform some of the greatest rock songs of the decade.    From  Bon Jovi,  Whitesnake, Guns n’ Roses, to Journey, Bryan Adams and so many more – this six-piece band is guaranteed to rock the house to its very foundations !     So if you want a night of rockin’ eighties fun – you’ve got it. Come along and enjoy The Ultimate 80’s Rock Experience! Tickets £21, concessions £20.

Friday 27th September 7.30pm- One Night of Elvis

Lee Memphis King, Europe’s most successful Elvis Presley tribute artist, recreates the essence of the King with consummate ease and an almost unbelievable combination of stunningly accurate vocals and incredible passion in every performance.

Over the last 10 years as Lee has toured his ‘One Night of Elvis’ he has picked up numerous accolades and has headlined and sold out some of the most prestigious venues across the UK and beyond. In August 2016 he completed a sell-out concert tour of Israel, performing to over 8,000 fans. 

Lee Memphis King portrays Elvis Presley at his peak celebrating the iconic ‘Vegas Years’ from 1969 – 1977. Resplendent in the most authentic costumes from Elvis’s performance and an orchestra backing, this incredible performer prepare to be taken back in time to see Elvis in the way it was. 

This brand new production is dedicated entirely to the ‘Vegas Years’ when Elvis would perform in Las Vegas and tour throughout the US and Canada – the definitive record of these performances are contained in the films ‘Elvis- That’s the Way It Is’, ‘Elvis On Tour’ and the ‘Aloha from Hawaii’ concert. The show is enhanced by an orchestra of world class musicians and backing vocalists coupled with impressive video screen projection mapping out Elvis’s life and music.

Lee Memphis King recreates it all with stunning authenticity – the voice and equally important for Lee, the passion and energy that Elvis put into his songs. He leaves audiences in no doubt that they are witnessing the world’s No 1 Elvis Tribute Artist. Pure entertainment and Pure Presley. www.leememphisking.com Tickets £23

In four short years WHAM! sold more than 28 million records, topping the charts with three albums, four number one singles and eleven top ten hits. They featured in the Live Aid concert of 1985 and were the first western pop group to ever tour in China.
