The Bandstand Welcomes The Boss for the First Time

12 September 2018

Two legends of Americana will be making their debut at the Bandstand on the weekend of 21 and 22 September both famed for having made their mark on US music and culture.


Glory Days at the BandstandOn Saturday 22 September, Glory Days will be evoking the sounds of iconic US rocker Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. Audiences are sure to enjoy this tribute to The Boss as the group play the sing along hits including ‘Born to Run’, ‘Dancing in the Dark’, ‘Born in the USA’ and ‘Streets of Philadelphia’

With his distinctive vocals and energetic stage performances, Springsteen has sold more than 135 million records worldwide and more than 64 million records in the United States, making him one of the world's best-selling artists of all time.

Glory Days line up line-up is exclusively composed of experienced concert musicians able to recreate some of the classic songs and performances that were, and still are, Springsteen’s trademark.
They are not content to just play the songs, they also manage to recreate an authentic Springsteen “experience” by adding the little details that put Springsteen shows and songs in a category all of their own.

The famed vocal harmonies of vocal folk rock super-group, Crosby, Stills and Nash will be celebrated on Friday 21 September with a tribute performance from The Marrakesh Express. Telling the story of the formation of this super-group and including songs from The Hollies, The Byrds and Buffalo Springfield, the band will take the audience back to a time of protest, revolution and great music.
