ROLLERMANIA is set to grip Eastleigh’s Concorde Club when the legendary tartan boy band return to the Stoneham Lane club.

Last time it was standing room only for the tartan spangled musical fest with enough Scottish regalia to cover The Royal Mile of lead singer Les McKeown’s native Edinburgh.

Now Les McKeown's Bay City Rollers are set for another kilt and sporran style invasion of Eastleigh on October 27.

In their heyday The Bay City Rollers were as big as The Beatles as everything they touched turned to gold, then platinum.

Up and down the land kids wore tartan culottes, scarves dangling from their wrists and Doc Marten boots.

The Bay City Rollers were propelled to superstardom with massive hits including Bye Bye Baby, Shang A Lang, Summer Love Sensation, Give A Little Love and USA number one Saturday Night.

The band sold 120 million records and conquered the UK, US, Australia, Japan and everywhere else.

Fame faded and they became the victims of one of those classic rock ‘n roll riches to rags stories.

Now Les - the only original member in this line-up, and his band are part of a glittering line up of new dates just released by The Concorde.

It also includes An Evening with The Overtones on November 25. The five piece vocal harmony group continue to reboot classic sounds for contemporary audiences.

Back to Basie on May 30 features London session musicians and jazz soloists, directed by trumpet player Paul Lacey, and all dedicated to playing the music of Count Basie's second great orchestra of the 1950s and 1960s.

Award winning jazz songstress and broadcaster Clare Teal returns on June 20 to the club which will always be close to her heart.

For it was from The Concorde that Clare Teal launched her own star studded career which has made her the nation’s most successful jazz singers in decades.

She regards the Stoneham Lane club as very much her spiritual home.

It was here that Clare learned much of her stage craft before breaking into the big time, clinching a £3 million pound five-album deal – an unprecedented amount for a jazz singer and she has never looked back.

Her mission has been to bring big band and swing to music lovers everywhere and in spreading this gospel she has criss crossed the United Kingdom and travelled the globe.

And The Concorde will be the stage for the spectacular Sounds of Philadelphia Show on July 27.
