An Evening With Simon & Oscar (Ocean Colour Scene)

An Evening With Simon & Oscar (Ocean Colour Scene)

In 2015 Ocean Colour Scene celebrated their 25th Anniversary with a sell-out acoustic tour of some of the most prestigious UK Concert Halls,  it was not only their most successful for 15 years, but also their best received, with ecstatic audience reactions every night.

Simon and Oscar are continuing the theme in 2022 with a tour of intimate seated venues, the perfect stages for their acoustic performances of all the big hits and anthems, including The Riverboat Song, The Circle, Traveller’s Tune, Hundred Mile High City and The Day We Caught The Train. These shows are the latest chapter in a remarkable career that’s seen OCS rise from Breton shirt-wearing Stone Roses disciples to one of Britpop’s biggest bands (their 1998 arena tour was the biggest by any UK group that year). In their 30 years together, they’ve enjoyed five Top 10 albums, six Top 10 singles and a mantelpiece full of awards. But behind all the swagger and the style were great songs, with words and melodies that found their way into your head and heart. It’s time to hear these songs again, stripped back but every bit as brilliant.

The James Bond Concert Spectacular

Guest Compere: Caroline Bliss – The Living Daylights & Licence To Kill

The James Bond Concert Spectacular by Q The Music Show is widely regarded across the world as the best tribute to the music of James Bond that has been produced.

Formed in 2004 as the world’s first dedicated tribute to the music of 007, they have gone on to establish themselves amongst every Bond fan club around the world as the finest performances of the songs since the originals.

Their stirring emotional and adrenaline-fueled performances, mixed in with superb musicianship and flair have been met by critical acclaim wherever they have gone.

Some of the most notable comments have come from hugely influential Bond related stars including:

David Arnold: “They do a phenomenal job”

George Lazenby: “They did John Barry proud”

Sir Roger Moore’s Office (following his Memorial): “They helped make a wonderful day an extraordinary day”

Steven Saltzman (son of legendary Bond producer Harry Saltzman): “You did my Dad proud”

Even The Times national newspaper raved about their performance in a 4-star review of their West End debut: “It’s hard to imagine this music being served better. Simply stunning.”

The show has become the go-to provider for all the top events in the world when it comes to James Bond. In 2017 they were asked to perform at Sir Roger Moore’s official memorial event at Pinewood Studios in front of the who’s who of the British film and TV industry including Sir Michael Caine, Dame Joan Collins and David Walliams. In 2019 they performed at an event with George Lazenby: the 50th anniversary event for On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, held at Piz Gloria in the Swiss Alps.

The show features all the Bond songs such as Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever, Live and Let Die and Nobody Does It Better, performed with the most authentic and dedicated arrangements to the originals ever heard, but with such passion, enthusiasm and flair: you can’t help but be wowed.

The musicians in the show are taken from the UK’s leading orchestras, sessions and shows, and combined with a former Bond girl compering. Caroline Bliss, who played Moneypenny in The Living Daylights and Licence To Kill, will guide you through the concert sharing the odd anecdote about her time working in this legendary series.

With stunning singing, exquisite musicianship, an informative compere, and a show full of iconic tunes, it really is a night guaranteed of the highest quality. Don’t miss it.

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