AFTER more than four decades in the music business, veteran rockers Showaddywaddy, are back on the road and ready to rock and roll into Poole next month.

Formed in the 1970s in Leicester from several local bands, the eight-piece group specialised in revivals of hit songs from the 1950s and 1960s.

The band which has just celebrated its 40th anniversary, sold more than 20 million records and has been touring the world entertaining fans since 1973.

Showaddywaddy’s new live show is described as a “dynamic and uplifting dance party”, featuring all their biggest hits, many of which reached number one in the pop charts of Europe, including Under the Moon of Love, Three Steps to Heaven, Hey Rock & Roll, When, Blue Moon, Pretty Little Angel Eyes and more.

Romeo Challenger, one of the founding members of Showaddywaddy, said: “The fans have always been amazing. It’s nice now when we do gigs to get the chance to meet those fans after a show – some of them have been waiting 40 years for the opportunity!”

The band were declared the hardest working band in 2016 for the second year running by Ents 24.

Showaddywaddy will be at Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre for the Arts, at 7.30pm on Friday, December 15.

Tickets £20. For more information or to book online, visit or call 01202 280000.
