Next month, audiences of the Worcester Swan Theatre will be treated to two hours of classic rock songs, from legendary artists such as Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Free, The Eagles, Jimi Hendrix to name but a few.

The Ultimate Classic Rock Show features hugely talented, energetic musicians and singers who have a wealth of experience in the music industry. Together they recreate the biggest and best classic rock anthems with outstanding energy and stunning accuracy, live on stage.

Joining the live rock band on stage will be around 14 students, aged 9-19, from local performing arts school, Stagecoach Redditch. The talented students will join the musicians on stage to perform Pink Floyd’s Another Brick in the Wall.

Sammi Broad (female lead singer from the show) says:

“When we were deciding to take our show out on the tour, there was one element I felt really passionately about, involving the next generation of rock stars. Having a performing art teacher’s background myself, I see first-hand the experiences my students get to be a part of and noticed that there was nothing like this out there for them. 

They are used to performing with a hidden band in the pit or a backing track but there is literally no feeling like that of being side by side on stage with a live band... and a live rock band is even better it’s electrifying! 

The children get to feel like rock stars and the parents and grandparents get to relive and enjoy the classic rock music from their youth. 

When choosing the right song Pink Floyd’s “another brick part 2” was the obvious choice! It makes an iconic song come to life on stage and the young performers really are the missing piece of the puzzle.”

Principal Michelle Holmes of Stagecoach Redditch says:

“Stagecoach Redditch was formed in 2005 and is run by Michelle Holmes. Our school believes in developing 'Creative Courage for Life' and gives the students the confidence to express themselves creatively in a safe, fun and friendly environment.

Our classes run in Redditch and Alcester on a Friday and Saturday. The students performing are representing our Friday night school and are from our Stage 3 and Further Stages class. They are very excited to be performing alongside professional musicians in what will be a fun and exciting show!”

The Ultimate Classic Rock Show will be taking place at Worcester Swan Theatre on Wednesday 12 February. Tickets can be purchased online at www.worcesterlive.co.uk or via the Box Office on 01905 611427.
