Nick Owen: Two Conversations with Roy Wood

#626: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! You may recall that the Nick Owen In Conversation With Roy Wood event at Birmingham Town Hall was postponed shortly before the originally intended date of Tuesday 22nd October. The good news is that not only has a new, revised date for this much anticipated event just been announced but a second date at The Garrick Theatre, Lichfield has also been scheduled in early 2014 too thus:

"Eccentric Birmingham-born rock musician Roy Wood visits Symphony Hall in December with his Rock & Roll Band, but prior to this, see him in conversation with Nick Owen. From his performance with The Move on the night England won the World Cup in 1966, to his sparkling 40th Anniversary concert, there is sure to be a lot to talk about! Nick Owen, popular radio and television broadcaster, is best known for his pioneering days in breakfast television, sharing the sofa with Anne Diamond at TV-am in the eighties. Having interviewed literally thousands of people, including six past and present Prime Ministers, showbiz figures from Bob Hope to Morecambe & Wise, members of The Beatles and many more, he visits Town Hall to delve into the career highlights of pop legend Roy Wood."

Wednesday 26th February
Nick Owen In Conversation With Roy Wood @ Lichfield Garrick Theatre
Tickets: £15 each (*plus booking fee)

"Roy Wood is one of the best known performers to emerge from the prodigious number of prolific musicians who've illuminated popular culture in the Midlands. Roy will be talking to broadcaster Nick Owen in this fascinating evening of stories, from performing at the Royal Albert Hall in front of Her Majesty the Queen to why he's never received a penny in royalties from one of his best known hits, Flowers in the Rain. His anecdotes are compelling and what's more, he plays enough instruments to be able to create an orchestra almost on his own!" (Lichfield Garrick)

ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) recommends Roy Wood to those enlightened folks who enjoy the music of ELO/Jeff Lynne, The Move, Wizzard, The Idle Race, 'Brum Beat', The Beatles and related artistes.

Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 04-Dec-2013
