THE QUO EXPERIENCE
The Cresset , Bretton

The Quo Experience After the tragic death of legendary Status Quo guitarist Rick Parfitt on Christmas Eve 2016, life will never be the same for hundreds of thousands of Quo fans around the world. Not only will Rick be missed for his unique talent, his witty charm and his heart of gold, but his legions of fans will also miss the magic he brought to the stage as one part of the legendary rock duo he formed with Francis Rossi which lasted for five decades. That magic, along with the excitement, exhilaration and euphoria of watching Rick and Francis performing together live will never be seen again. But all is not lost; there is a new band on the scene that features the perfect tribute to the legendary duo to help keep the memory of the biggest rock god of them all alive. The Quo Experience is a band with an impressively experienced line-up including Shaun Michaels (as Francis Rossi) and Dave Crawte (as Rick Parfitt), who have both featured in quality Quo tribute acts in the past. Shaun and Dave have spent years studying every detail of Rossi and Parfitt's looks, playing styles and stage performances to make sure they are both as close to the real thing on stage as possible. However, The Quo Experience is not all about Rick and Francis; it also features Graham Partridge, a superb keyboard player who captures the magic of Andy Bown's playing and vocals perfectly; Alex Bayou, a brilliant Matt Letley style drummer, who has been playing along to Quo since he was four years old, and Brian ‘Brino’ Smith on bass, a well-known and respected Rhino-style player and performer on the Quo tribute circuit for over ten years, who thumps out the Rhino bass lines to help give The Quo Experience the stomach thumping sound every Quo Army fan expects to hear! The magic and chemistry that the Parfitt/Rossi partnership brought to a Quo live performance, along with the incredible energy that Rick added to the show, is being continued within The Quo Experience. So for both the loyal Quo fans who have been addicted to seeing the true Status Quo live for the past 50 yrs, along with those people who never managed to get around to experiencing the exhilaration of a Quo performance with both Rick Parfitt and Francis Rossi on stage, this is your chance to continue or start getting your fix!

YERMA BY THE NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE
The Key Theatre, The Embankment

Tickets for this performance are £11 Full Price (including booking fee) The incredible Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Great Britain) returns in her Evening Standard Best Actress award-winning role. A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece. The unmissable theatre phenomenon sold out at the Young Vic and critics call it an extraordinary theatrical triumph (The Times) and stunning, searing, unmissable (Mail on Sunday). Billie Piper’s lead performance is described as spellbinding (The Evening Standard), astonishing (iNews) and devastatingly powerful (The Daily Telegraph). Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax. Booking & Enquiries: 01733 207239

SUMMER LUNCHTIME RECITALS WITH DAVID HUMPHRIES ON THE ORGAN
Peterborough Cathederal, Peterborough

Peterborough Cathedral’s popular series of free summer recitals has begun, on Wednesdays at 1.00pm. City centre workers, shoppers and anyone who is visiting Peterborough on a Wednesday is invited to enjoy the 45 minute recitals, performed underneath the tower inside the Cathedral. This beautiful setting, combined with music from some of the UK’s most accomplished performers, is a wonderful way to pause for thought and lift your spirits at lunchtime. The recitalists this year include the harpist Eleanor Turner (2nd August), who is Head of Harp at Birmingham Conservatoire and a passionate ambassador for the instrument. Her London debut, aged 15, was broadcast live on Classic FM. The Cathedral organ's new concert pitch means that it can now be used with other instruments and several of the recitals take advantage of this capability. At various times during the series it is played in combination with the solo voice, guitar, trumpet and violin. The recitals are free of charge and no ticket is needed. The series is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and donations are invited to help cover the full costs.

WE LOVE TO BOOGIE
The Key Theatre, The Embankment

WE LOVE TO BOOGIE (PHOTO) The music of Marc Bolan with his band T.Rex, has endured despite his sad demise in the late seventies. Marc was one of the most flamboyant and charismatic stars of the original glam rock era, With Bolan's special ingredient of Rock-a-Boogie songs throughout the 1970s including Telegram Sam and Metal Guru, we lost a potentially great star of his generation. I have seen T Rextasy a couple of times and have another chance on Sunday October 1 when they visit the Key Theatre. Their 20 year plus career ironically out lives Marc’s very own T.Rex. T Rextasy is now accepted as one of the world’s few official live tribute bands dedicated to Marc Bolan, and the only band endorsed and approved by Marc’s family, estate and original ex-members of T.Rex. The band’s been described by many as beyond the boundaries of tribute. Of course Marc’s songs re-appeared to a new generation in the film, Billy Elliot, and therefore it’s a rock and roll concert for all ages. If you’d like to know exactly what a Marc Bolan concert was like in the 1970s, this show is for you! Tickets are available from the Key Theatre box office on 01733

SCOOTED AND BOOTED
The Lime Tree, Walton

Back To Basics Scooter Club (BTBSC) are holding an End of Season Bash at the Lime Tree Pub on Paston Lane on October 7. And they’ve chosen a band who brings the perfect type of music for Scooter fans. They are Scooted and Booted. What a great name for a Ska & Reggae covers band playing songs from artists such as Madness, The Specials, Bad Manners, UB40, Desmond Decker, The Beat and many more. The nine piece band contains a brass section to enhance the guitars and keyboard and boasts two lead singers. They appear at venues all over East Anglia, and claim to make sure that their performance will get you up and dancing from the very start. Back To Basics Scooter Club was formed by a group of friends in the Peterborough area who have an interest in the local scooter scene and have grown in membership by staging scooter related events all through the year but particularly in the summer. Hence an ‘End of Season Bash’ Tickets can be bought in advance for this very popular event and you can get yours from The Lime Tree on 01733 326603.
