Glitter Band / Paper Lace - Thursday 11th April - Croydon Fairfield Halls

Yep, I know. Not 2 bands you'd expect to feature on this blog. But, showing my age, these are 2 bands I listened to whilst growing up in the 70's. And a local trip to Croydon was an opportunity not to be turned down, although by the sparse audience, not many others shared that view!

Paper Lace did not disappoint with a greatest hits set including the brilliant "Billy Don't Be A Hero". Of more surprise was a really good version of Quo's "Whatever You Want" and the Eagles "Heartache Tonight".

The Glitter band also wisely stuck to their hits, both those recorded under their own name and those with the now disgraced Gary Glitter. As you can imagine this let to a bit of a sing-a-long and a feel good evening. So, if they come around again, park your street-cred at the door and go and have some fun.
