THE LEGENDARY BAY CITY ROLLERS takes you on a trip down memory lane, back to the 70’s, when the world turned tartan! The Bay City Rollers sold over 300 million albums worldwide and Les McKeown was the original voice on every hit song.

In this Greatest Hits Show, hear Les and his fabulous band THE LEGENDARY BAY CITY ROLLERS play all the songs that defined a generation including “Shang A Lang”, “Summer of Love Sensation”, All of Me Loves All of You” and the number one best selling song of 1975 “Bye Bye Baby”.

After joining the Bay City Rollers in 1973, Les McKeown shot to superstardom. Their first US single, “S-a-t-u-r-d-a-y Night”, went straight to the top number one spot of the Billboard charts. They toured all over the world and played to sold out crowds in the USA, Japan, Great Britain, Europe, New Zealand and Australia.

After leaving the Bay City Rollers in 1978, The Rollers quickly disappeared from public eye. When Les McKeown reunited the band in 1982 for sold out shows at Tokyo’s famous Budokan it was such a huge success they toured again in 1983. Drawing on the overwhelming response of these reunions, the band Les & Pat, recorded their first studio LP in seven years, Breakout. The LP was released in Japan and Australia and they toured to support its release.

It would be more than 12 years before the band would perform together again, taking the stage in their hometown of Edinburgh for the massive Millennium concert festival on New Year’s Eve in 1999. Since then the new members Si Mulvey, Alex Toff, Michael Koch and Alex Southgate, have given the band a new energy and excitement.
