70's Sounds Revisited This Christmas in Yorkshire

The Ultimate 70's Show Brings the Ultimate Christmas Office Party

70's Sounds Revisited This Christmas in Yorkshire

"The brilliant thing about our show is that you dont need to have been there the first time around to enjoy the Seventies spirit"
Chris Peters - Vocals

To many people, the best Christmas songs were written and performed in the 1970’s. Who could forget festive rock and roll classics from Mud, Wizzard and of course the classic Merry Christmas Everybody from Slade? 

Well, this Christmas, the sensational sounds of the ‘70’s are being faithfully and festively recreated at Ilkley Kings Hall and Winter Gardens on December 3rd and at Masham Hall on December 18th by the Ultimate 70’s Show. 

With classic tracks by Queen, Bowie, Slade, T.Rex, The Sweet, Suzi Quatro, Alice Cooper and Mott the Hoople to name a few, the show is the perfect excuse to grab the platform heels, lurex trousers and star jumpers and travel back in time to the land of space hoppers, Charlie’s Angels and the TV test card. 

Martin Metcalf, a former guitarist with legendary group Geordie, is one of the six 70s rockers and session musicians who make up Ultimate 70s, whose brand of entertainment has been a huge hit with festival goers in Britain and Europe.

“I’ll be putting on my face paint and flares to make these shows the perfect way to forget the last 18 difficult months. During lockdown, we worked on new additions to the show, including new songs that we haven’t previously played before and new material to get everyone chuckling and reminiscing over those good old days. 

“We’ve found that in previous years our show has been a great place to hold the office Christmas party as we supply the music and the fun, and the audience just need to turn up and let their hair down,” said Martin.

Vocalist Chris Peters is looking forward to returning to live shows in Yorkshire:

“The Yorkshire audience always knows how to have fun. Our show is a totally live tribute to the rock and pop idols of the 1970s and we are passionate about re-creating the sounds of the era the audience loves. The brilliant thing about our show is that you don’t need to have been there the first time around to enjoy the Seventies spirit. 

“There’s never been a decade like it for the sheer energy, ostentation, and fun. There’s no obligation to dress-up but we’ve found that many people do, and it adds to the Christmas party spirit,” he said.

Tickets for the Ilkley Kings Hall and Winter Gardens on December 3rd and at Masham Hall on December 18th are available from the venues or from www.ultimate70sshow.com
