|U2 Baby, The (Sex) Pistols and Transmission (Joy Division) all coming to Ruislip soon|
Dear Live Music Fan
FRIDAY 20th APRIL
U2Baby are the U2 tribute band from west London that The Church fly IN to Dublin when U2 are playing. Such is their reputation for delivering a U2 show their clients include famous venues such as the Globe Cardiff, Sporting Club Monaco, Tribfest Bahrain, Mad Club Lausanne and sold out gigs at the Cavern Club in Liverpool.
For U2Baby the sound is important, the look is important, but ultimately they recreate the feeling of a live U2 gig.
The chills, the hairs standing up on the back of the neck. Everything that makes a U2 show so special.
Hit after hit from the 80s to the present day from A Sort of Homecoming to With or With Out You.
They have been booked to play four gigs in Dublin in November when U2 are at the 3Arena and also at the famous Boyles of Slane.
These guys are the U2 fans tribute band of choice and the definitive tribute to the music of U2.
Looking at the bookings I think we will be "just perfect" numbers wise for those coming, with room to sit, stand, or dance as the mood takes you.
Book now at http://www.tropicatruislip.co.uk/ebook/index.htm or your usual web links.
LOOKING FURTHER AHEAD
FRIDAY 27th APRIL
THE PISTOLS plus TRANSMISSION
VERY STRONG LANGUAGE USED THROUGHOUT - IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE INSULTED DON'T ATTEND!!!
Come down and help me (Philip) celebrate my
60th birthday (actually on the Saturday 28th ) and no I do not look
that old thanks…
Please note this will be an early start with Transmission on stage at just after 9 p.m.
TRANSMISSION - a tribute to Joy Division.
Devoted to recreating the atmosphere of a live Joy Division gig, Transmission emulate the sound of one of the most inventive, evocative and influential groups of their era. Joy Division were formed in the late 1970s and dissolved in May 1980 after the suicide of lead singer Ian Curtis.
The remaining members went on to form New Order and have achieved much critical and commercial success. The influence of Joy Division, however, was far reaching. They were considered the pioneering band of the post-punk movement of the late 1970s and early 1980s. More than 20 years on you can still relive the dark cavernous sound of Joy Division through Transmission the U.K's number one Joy Division tribute act.
VERY STRONG LANGUAGE WILL BE USED THROUGHOUT THIS SET. EXPECT TO BE CALLED RUDE NAMES….AND LAUGH ALONG WITH IT.
The Pistols are the world renowned Sex Pistols tribute band playing all of the original material from one of the most influential bands of our time. All of the blistering hits such as Pretty Vacant, God Save The Queen and Anarchy In the UK are there...but you will also be treated to the farcical gems of the Sex Pistols aftermath such as Friggin In The Riggin, Silly Thing and My Way
Admission is £12 pre-book at http://www.tropicatruislip.co.uk/ebook/index.htm or the usual web links.
If you travel some distance and stay overnight then I have found that the best deals can probably be found using the https://www.booking.com/index.en-gb.html where I confess I always book my rooms through when travelling.
One hotel that folk might overlook when considering where to stay is http://eurotravellerhotel.com/premier-hotel-harrow.html where usually you can book off the bookings.com web site and maybe get a better deal.
This hotel is in South Harrow right next door to South Harrow Police Station and has a bus stop for the 114 right outside, so what you could do is park you car locally to Tropic' and get a 114 to your hotel (the buses run all night on Friday and Saturday) and then again back to your car in the morning. The hotel has only limited car parking on site.
If you elect to get the train back to South Harrow on the Piccadilly Line although getting in to South Harrow might be quicker the walk up from the station might mean it actually is slower than the bus.
When I looked recently a room for two booked well in advance was as cheap as £49. But do BOOK EARLY.
What can I say? The Honeyslides came on stage at 9.30 (well one of them at least) and just rocked straight through until just after midnight. They blew everyone away as they always do. Thanks to everyone who came along to see them, and if you had never seen them before I hope you left impressed.
There is no date in the diary for The Honeyslides to return as I type.
I think that is all.
See U2 soon.
