‘The Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band In The World’ is a bold statement, but Showaddywaddy has lived up to that title for the last four decades!
Formed in the ’70s in Leicester from several local bands, they have sold more than 20 million records and toured all corners of the world extensively.
In 1973, the band were asked if they wanted to appear on the TV show ‘New Faces’. They went on to win their programme in the series and were runners-up in the “All Winners Final”. This led to various record companies racing to sign them, however they had already signed to Bell Records.
The band’s first single, Hey Rock And Roll was released on in April 1974 and reached number two in the UK charts. Showaddywaddy hit the UK charts another 22 times up until late 1982. These included 10 Top-Ten singles and one number one, racking up a total on 209 weeks in the singles chart – making Showaddywaddy one of the most successful singles groups of all time.
Their live show is dynamic and uplifting, featuring all of their biggest hits – Under The Moon of Love, Three Steps to Heaven, Hey Rock & Roll, When, Blue Moon, Pretty Little Angel Eyes and more! – many of which reached number one in the pop charts of Europe.
So come and join the Dancin’ Party… You’ve Got What It Takes!
