John Otway Big Band Christmas Show
A big welcome back to John Otway, who returns with His Big Band to the Borderline for the ultimate Christmas Show. His movie Rock and Roll’s Greatest Failure – Otway The Movie has been playing to packed houses across the country, was shown at Glastonbury and selected for the prestigious Cambridge Film Festival.
In the midst of Britain’s 1970s punk revolution and after a momentous TV appearance where five and a half million viewers watched him land painfully on his testicles, Otway was high in the charts with his occasional partner, Wild Willy Barrett. His next HIT was 25 years later.
Expect a great laugh plus all the rocking’ hits:Beware Of The Flowers, Really Free, Geneva, Bunsen Burner, Green Green Grass of Home, and many, many more plus the possibility of a Christmas song or two!
It is highly unlikely that John will be performing with his Willy tonight, but you never know who may show up to joing in the Festive Cheer.
”He’s a cabaret act masquerading as a rock act. He is gleeful, anecdotal, funny and life-enhancing.” – Canterbury Fayre Review
“…makes it difficult to tell if he is barking mad or a musical genius….” – Screenjabber Review
Note: Otway on stage from 8pm for 2 sets
