Andy’s pedigree is the stuff of rock dreams. As lead singer in 60's pop heart throbs Amen Corner, he clocked-up hit after pop hit (Bend Me Shape Me, If Paradise is Half As Nice); a successful solo career followed, including the hit Wide Eyed & Legless. Since then, as a top-drawer session player he has worked with Eric Clapton (for 20 years), George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Elton John, The Who... and hundreds more household names. Now following a solo path, together with a top-notch band, his show is a riot of blues, country, surf, gospel, his own solo material and a bunch of the old hits.

Life On The Moon
By English Touring Opera

Tuesday 4 Nov, 7.30pm
Fresh from beating Placido Domingo and Joyce DiDonato to win the 2014 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Opera, English Touring Opera returns to Durham with a season of Georgian splendour. These two masterpieces are wildly different. One is lofty and heartbreaking, the other a razor-sharp comedy. Both are performed in English, with The Old Street Band, ETO’s acclaimed baroque period orchestra.

Cal McCrystal, the comedy director behind the National Theatre’s smash hit One Man, Two Guvnors, directs this new production. In its day, this fast-moving comedy was the most popular of Haydn’s many operas, matching the composer’s virtuosic music with the mischievous wit of playwright Carlo Goldoni. To trick a lecherous scrooge, an ‘astronomer’ sets up an elaborate charade and tricks him into believing he has flown to the moon.
