Led by the charismatic singer-songwriter Robert Howard (aka Dr Robert) and ably assisted by bassist Mick Anker, drummer Tony Kiley and saxophonist Neville Henry, The Blow Monkeys blazed an iconic trail across the 1980s with worldwide hits such as ‘Digging Your Scene’ and ‘It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way’. Their success was further cemented with hits such as ‘Choices’ and ‘Wait’, not to mention ‘You Don’t Own Me’ which featured on the multi-platinum selling soundtrack to the hit film Dirty Dancing.
The Blow Monkeys reformed in 2008 and released their first new album in 18 years and their renaissance has continued ever since. After a career spanning more than 30 years, these dates will be an extravaganza of “Blow Monkey Boogie” and “Simian Soul” and promises to be another landmark achievement on a journey that just keeps on getting better.
To kick off the 80s vibe, The Blow Monkeys will be supported by Keith George’s wonderful tribute, The Boy George Experience. Performing all of the Culture Club classics as well as Boy George’s many solo hits, Keith’s show is as faithful to the star’s costumes as it is to his unique vocal style.
