THE Bay City Rollers are coming to town to perform some of their greatest hits.

The group are rolling onto the stage of The Winter Gardens for one night only on July 18.

The super group are renowned for their ability to draw massive crowds.

They were first catapulted to success when Les McKeown became their front man, just a few days after his 18th birthday in 1973.

Les McKeown soon became known for his incredible stage presence and ability to entertain an audience.

According to British hit singles and albums the band were the first of many acts heralded as the biggest group since The Beatles and one of the most screamed-at teeny-bopper acts of the 1970s.

The evening will be filled with the original hits that made the band so famous in the 1970s, when they reached number one not only in the UK but also across mainland Europe and in Japan, Australia and America.

Doors will open at 7.30pm. Tickets, priced £21.50, are available from the box office on 01934 645544 or via www.theplayhouse.co.uk.
