Music to put a spring in your step

Derby LIVE is bringing you plenty of music this spring, so whether it’s folk, acoustic or motown that tickles your fancy we’ve got the thing for you!

For anyone who loves the sounds of the 60's - and enjoys a few laughs on the way – The Bootleg Shadows, at the Guildhall Theatre on Thursday 29 March, is the perfect musical event. Performing a unique tribute that has audiences humming the tunes and doing the Shadows famous 'walk' long after they have left the theatre Geoff, Keith, Tony, Tim and Binks take the audience on a tour of the Shadows career from 1960 up until the early 80s. Tickets for The Bootleg Shadows are available for £20. 

Irish Legends The Fureys are a must see as they come to the Guildhall Theatre on Tuesday 24 April as part of their 40th Anniversary tour for a great night of music, songs and stories. Hear them sing their timeless classics including I will love you, When you were sweet 16, The Green fields of France, The old man, Red rose café, From Clare to here, Her father didn’t like me anyway, Leaving Nancy, Steal away etc. plus songs from their new CD The Times they are a changing. Tickets are available for £22.25. 

Looking ahead to summer Derby LIVE has several great musical events at Derby Arena. Coming to Derby Arena this summer is Fastlove, a show that is packed with crowd pleasing George Michael anthems. From the Wham classics of the new pop revival to the chart-topping success of the eighties album Faith, plus the awesome tunes of the nineties and noughties, this is a spell binding experience that can’t be missed. Tickets are available for the show on Thursday 28 Jun for £27.
