Mick Fleetwood has assembled a stellar cast of musicians to celebrate the music that established Fleetwood Mac as one of the biggest bands in the world – the music of Peter Green.
With a line-up featuring Neil Finn (Crowded House), Noel Gallagher (Oasis), Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), David Gilmour (Pink Floyd), Kirk Hammett (Metallica), Jonny Lang, John Mayall, Christine McVie (Fleetwood Mac), Pete Townshend (The Who), Steven Tyler (Aerosmith) and Bill Wyman (The Rolling Stones), this once-in-a-lifetime concert event captured at The London Palladium on 25 Feb 2020 is an absolute must-see for any music fan out there.
Peter Green was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame together with Fleetwood Mac in 1998. Rolling Stone magazine rates Peter as one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of all time. Directed by award-winning concert director Martyn Atkins (Joni 75, Crossroads Guitar Festival, Cream at the Royal Albert Hall), the cinema event will be preceded by an introduction from Mick Fleetwood, plus exclusive rehearsal footage and interviews with some of the featured artists. Legendary sound producer Glynn Johns, who produced albums for The Who, The Rolling Stones, The Eagles and Led Zeppelin, will take charge of the audio production.
“The concert is a celebration of those early blues days where we all began, and it’s important to recognise the profound impact Peter and the early Fleetwood Mac had on the world of music. Peter was my greatest mentor and it gives me such joy to pay tribute to his incredible talent. I am honoured to be sharing the stage with some of the many artists Peter has inspired over the years and who share my great respect for this remarkable musician.”

Strauss’s thrilling and audacious adaptation of Greek tragedy receives a new staging by the award-winning director Christof Loy. This uncompromising opera, about a daughter intent on bloody revenge and a mother driven to madness, has provoked critics to lively debate and both shocked and excited audiences since its 1909 premiere. Antonio Pappano conducts music that combines violence with moments of exquisite tenderness in his first Strauss interpretation for The Royal Opera since 2002. The outstanding cast includes Nina Stemme (Brünnhilde in last Season’s Der Ring des Nibelungen) in the title role, and Karita Mattila in her role debut as the haunted queen Klytämnestra.

This single is receiving lots of Radio airplay and making The Real Thing a force to be reckoned with once again.

The UK’s Number One Status Quo Tribute Show!
“An excellent show, really capturing the essence of the Quo I played with for 13 odd years – the attention to detail is awesome!” MATT LETLEY - Status Quo drummer 2000-2013
Rockin’ All Over The World - Whatever You Want – Down Down – Living On An Island – In The Army Now - What You’re Proposing – Burning Bridges… just a few of the many hits spreading five decades of Status Quo’s incredible music history.
‘The Quo Experience' is an East Anglian based band including David Wood as ‘Francis Rossi’ and Dave Crawte as ‘Rick Parfitt’; both have spent years studying every detail of Rossi and Parfitt's looks, playing styles and stage performances to make sure they are both as close to the real thing on stage as is possible, without actually being the legendary rock duo themselves! The magic and chemistry that the Parfitt/Rossi partnership brought to a Quo 'live' performance is now being continued within The Quo Experience.
However, The Quo Experience is not all about Rick and Francis; it also features Graham Partridge, who captures the magic of Status Quo’s long-term keyboard player Andy Bown's playing and vocals perfectly; plus Ian ‘Jaspa’ Woodthorpe on drums and Del Fletcher on bass, who together help create the Status Quo ‘live’ sound every fan expects to hear!
With such an impressive line-up of seriously experienced musicians and passionate Quo fans, along with a stage show that includes the legendary Status Quo wall of white Marshalls and replica guitars, The Quo Experience is fully armed to take the act as far as is possibly achievable in the tribute band industry. The Quo Experience is, however, not just another Quo tribute band - it is an 'experience'; an ongoing chance to 'experience' the sounds and looks of "Britain's biggest singles chart band of all time" as we all remember it!
The Quo Experience feel proud and privileged to have had the legendary Status Quo drummer Matt Letley play many full shows with the band during 2017 and 2018. This goes to show the Quo Experience are not just another Status Quo tribute band but an act worth seeing by any Quo fan along with others who may not have seen the real Status Quo ‘live’.
The Quo Experience now feel honoured to be represented by Rick Parfitt’s widow Lyndsay Parfitt at ‘Lyndsay Parfitt Promotions’!
“I feel very proud to be working with the UK’s number one Status Quo tribute act ‘The Quo Experience’ to help keep my late husband’s name and music alive. This is a tribute act that does everything right... the show, the sound and the mannerisms... a band well worth seeing and a fitting tribute to Rick and Status Quo” – Lyndsay Parfitt
This show has been postponed to September 6th, all tickets will be valid for this and we will contact ticket holders asap.

Ruby Wax: How To Be Human
Based on her bestselling book, Ruby’s new show How To Be Human answers every question you've ever had about evolution, thoughts, emotions, the body, addictions, relationships, sex, kids, the future and compassion.
We can’t stop the future from arriving, no matter what drugs we’re on. But even if nearly every part of us becomes robotic, mechanical fingers crossed we’ll still have our minds. Hopefully we’ll use them for things like compassion, instead of just chasing what’s ‘better’ like a hamster on a wheel. If we can do that, we’re on the yellow brick road to happiness.
This show is the follow up to Ruby’s sell out shows Sane New World and Frazzled and incorporates what she discovered whilst writing her latest book with monk Gelong Thubten and neuroscientist Ash Ranpura.
Outrageously witty and smart, blending brilliant comedy and insightful life lessons, How To Be Human is the show you need to help you upgrade your mind as much as you’ve upgraded your iPhone.
Please note that Gelong Thubten and Ash Ranpura will not be appearing at this show.

Simon Evans: The Work of the Devil
Simon Evans’ last show, Genius 2.0 (***** “A Masterclass” The Scotsman) provided an hilarious analysis of the departure of any visible sign of intelligence from modern life. But his new show raises the stakes, with his usual excoriating views of a world on fire given a perspective shift from personal revelations that turned his world upside down this year.
“A gripping and, ultimately heart-warming tale… rich with Evans' wit and caustic observation.” (**** The Scotsman)
“You expect a high standard of stand-up from this veteran performer. But in sharing something so deeply personal, he’s exceeded what seemed to be his full potential… I’d expect it to get even better when it goes out on tour. Outstanding stuff.” ( **** ½ Chortle)
'Dynamite’ ★★★★ The Times
Simon Evans is the star of Live at the Apollo, Mock The Week, BBC Radio 4's The News Quiz, The Unbelievable Truth & Simon Evans Goes To Market. Simon has made appearances on This Week, Question Time, Celebrity Mastermind, Pointless Celebrities and Mastermind The Professionals.

Katey Brooks is a rebellious artist that resists formula. A devastating songwriting talent this ‘rising singer-songwriter had the crowd eating out of her hands’ (The Independent) and is simply ‘not to be missed’ (Time Out). The ‘powerful’ (Evening Standard) songstress defies easy classification, with a sound blending folk, soul, blues and country. Her finger-picked, harmony-inflected sound on the 2016 I Fought Lovers EP received an enthusiastic reception from radio stations around the UK and internationally, including BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music and CBC Canada and her new album Revolute was released in May 2019 to huge critical acclaim across the world. Revolute blends soul and folk with Americana to “create something hopefully pretty different…My realm is connection and emotion, something quite raw, I think” – says Katey.
To watch her sing live is to witness emotional exorcism, but when you know her backstory, it’s hardly a mystery why. Growing up inside a cult, as a child Katey found refuge in song. Later, she travelled the world with her guitar on her back, writing everywhere from the Occupied West Bank to an abandoned Finnish island. Over a career spanning four continents, Brooks has journeyed from intimate living rooms to opulent concert halls, from dive bars to decorated studios with some of music’s biggest names, boasting famous admirers like Joss Stone. She has recorded with Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones and Paloma Faith at Abbey Road for BBC Radio 2’s Children in Need single. She has shared bills with a host of big names including Newton Faulkner, Ghostpoet, Martin Simpson, Deaf Havana, Lou Rhodes (Lamb), Mike and the Mechanics, and Mystery Jets. She has played some of the world’s biggest festivals including Glastonbury, WOMAD, the 2012 Paralympics, the Cambridge Folk Festival and Australia’s National Folk Festival.
Due to current circumstances the Band have postponed this show to May 21st 2021 All tickets will be transferred, the Stereosonics thank you for your support!!!
The Forum are pleased to announce that we have these guys performing here!!!
The band mastered the large catalogue of Stereophonics songs and began to perform live on a regular basis. Even playing a fantastic gig at the Working Man’s Club in Cwmaman, Wales; where the Stereophonics played their first ever live show, due to it being Kelly, Richard and Stuart’s home town! the band had the great pleasure of being joined onstage by Stuart Cable Stereophonics former drummer – which is a personal highlight for all band members.
Stereosonics received many compliments that evening regarding Their performance, even being told that Shane sounds like Kelly by Mrs Jones herself! (Kelly’s mother, Beryl) they continued to perform over the years and became renowned for providing great entertainment that could not be rivalled unless you had an audience with the band themselves.
Due to family commitments and a member of the group emigrating they took a year off from the performing scene, although they continued to rehearse and hone their performance as close to the originals as possible.
They were now back with a vengeance and ready to rock the tribute music scene once again.
As the band restarted with new members, it felt that a new beginning and a new name was necessary. Formally known as the Replicaphonics, the band re-emerged as the Stereosonics.
Stereosonics are proving to be more successful than ever and continue to tour the length and bredth of the UK going from strength to strength.

The Unravelling Wilburys, a band of good ‘ol boys, turn their skills and replicate the sound and songs of the late 80s ‘super-group’ The Traveling Wilburys where five of the greatest names in rock music history came together…George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan and Jeff Lynne of ELO…and completed two Wilburys albums, Volumes One and Three though, sadly, Roy Orbison had passed away before Volume Three was recorded.
So… welcome to Thumper, Blind Melon, Sticky Willy, Walter and Honky Tonk…The Unravelling Wilburys. In a former guise as top Beatles project, Sgt Pepper’s Only Dart Board Band, (The Flab Five), they had toured for 21 years playing at UK festivals, including Glastonbury, and at theatres and music venues across Europe and the UK. They also headlined at a Beatles festival at Montgomery, Alabama.
Their shows feature the boys take on their songs being usurped by Messrs Harrison, Dylan, Lynne, Orbison and Petty, back in the late 80's at Nashville, Tennessee. The story unravels, as is told in the show, and it comes to be that The Unravelling Wilburys have now stolen back what is rightfully theirs! Not only that, they have stolen some choice solo songs (allegedly) from Messrs Dylan, Lynne, Orbison, Harrison and Petty as compensation…and now happily play them in their shows!
The set list includes Wilbury songs such as: End Of The Line, Handle With Care, The Devil’s Been Busy, Last Night, Tweeter And The Monkey Man, She’s My Baby, Heading For The Light…And choice cuts such as: Pretty Woman, You’ve Got It (Roy Orbison), Mr Blue Sky, Evil Woman (Jeff Lynne’s ELO), I Won’t Back Down, Running Down A Dream (Tom Petty), Mr Tambourine Man, Make You Feel My Love (Bob Dylan), Here Come’s The Sun (George Harrison)…and many more. All great songs in the Country/Rock genres and plenty of humour throughout!
”Captured the style and sounds perfectly and with their own added sense of humour gave the audience an evening to remember”
