Glenn Tilbrook

It was 1973 when Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford first formed the band that would that would see them dubbed ‘The New Lennon and McCartney’. 45 years later they continue to tour in Squeeze, together as a duo, or as solo performers.

Glenn Tilbrooks solo shows have continued to rise in popularity with his 2016 tour selling out all but a couple of shows. The reasons for this are a combination of a consummately professional, yet distinctly personal performance, the familiarity of those wonderful Squeeze songs – both new and old, and the occasional spontaneous interpretation of a respected song by another artist.

Holy Holy Featuring Woody Woodmansey & Tony Visconti -

Pre-sale begins 23/05 9am, sign up here to get access!

The MJR Group Presents 

Woody Woodmansey and Tony Visconti’s  Holy Holy  Featuring Glen Gregory on vocals 

Performing Bowie’s 'The Man Who Sold The World', 'The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust', 'Spiders From Mars' and other hits from the Bowie years of 1969 – 1973.

Probably the closest experience to a BOWIE gig you can get! Holy Holy are Bowie’s drummer and Spider Man from Mars – Woody Woodmansey and producer Tony Visconti, who worked on many of Bowie’s albums and played Bass on the Man Who Sold The World. Accompanied by an all star band that includes glorious Bowie-esque vocals from Heaven 17’s Glenn Gregory, a Bowie fan and friend who also performed alongside Bowie on the original Band Aid single in 1984. 

The group perform Bowie’s material from the early years of ’69 – 73, upon which both Woody and Tony contributed at that time, making these exceptionally accomplished musicians and writers a long way from a Tribute band. They’re the real deal, original Bowie band members, bringing the magic back to life with one of the greatest synth pop front men of the 80’s joining the parade!  

Ticket price includes £1 venue restoration levy.

The Selecter - 40th Anniversary Tour + DJ Rhoda Dakar

The English Beat

The Selecter have announced their 40th Anniversary Tour in 2019 with Special Guest and DJ Rhoda Dakar. The Selecter will be playing an extended, hit-rich set each night with some added live favourites and surprises. They will also be joined for a few songs by vocalist Rhoda Dakar who will also play a DJ Set to open the nights.

The Selecter is led by their iconic frontwoman Pauline Black and co-fronted by original member Arthur ‘Gaps’ Hendrickson. Pauline Black is one of very few women in the 2-Tone scene - she is often referred to as the Queen of Ska. Not only a crucial figure in the music community, Black is also a published author, gifted actress and a celebrated style icon.

The anarchic passion that fuelled Selecter gigs during the original 2-Tone era is still there, except the pair are more driven than ever. Their confidence is sky-high and they’re also writing the best songs of their career, which is saying something given the enduring popularity of hits like “Three Minute Hero,” “Missing Words,” “Too Much Pressure” and “On My Radio.”

The Selecter continue to release new music, charting new albums in the UK in the last couple of years, proving that 2-Tone is still as relevant and important as it was 40 years ago. In October 2017 The Selecter released studio album Daylight – their most urgent, politically engaged and purely uplifting record since the days of Too Much Pressure and Celebrate The Bullet.

Rhoda Dakar’s career began as lead vocalist with all-woman 2-Tone band The Bodysnatchers who toured with The Selecter. The Bodysnatchers first single was double A-side "Let's Do Rocksteady" with "Ruder Than You". Rhoda also later sang and collaborated with The Specials.

2-Tone was a crucial multi-racial, multi-cultural explosion borne out of Coventry and the Midlands that remade British pop from 1979 onwards. The main bands who pioneered the movement were The Selecter, The Beat, The Specials and Madness. 2019 also sees the 40th anniversary of 2-Tone.

Please note there is a £2 ticket commission fee included in the price of the ticket.

This event is not part of our usual group booking discount.

The price of tickets will increase from £27 to £32 on the night of the show, so make sure to book your tickets in advance!.

De La Warr Pavilion

The De La Warr Pavilion, a true gem of 1930s modernist architecture, has been delivering art and culture to the people of Bexhill on Sea since a pre-fame Spike Milligan was posted here during WWII. Now a Grade One listed building (which would have much displeased the anti-modernist Goon), it was in a poor state for years until it received a thorough restoration and was reopened in 2005 as an arts centre. It hosts concerts, touring theatre shows, comedy gigs, art exhibitions, workshops, talks and tours.

Bexhill station is a few minutes away by foot, and the pavilion is served by local bus routes 12, 13, 94, 95 and 96.
