Merry Christmas and a Happy 2017

With first part of their mammoth French tour completed the guys will be taking a well deserved Christmas break until the second leg starts in Nancy on 13th January 2017. The tour has been very successful so far with them having performed to well over 150,000 people and this will have topped a quarter of a million by the time they finish in Brussels on the 17th of February. A belated winter holiday will follow before they return to continue with the postponed UK tour dates in April. All Tour dates so far for 2017 will be posted soon.

Alan has been overwhelmed with birthday wishes and thanks you all for thinking of him on his special day.

Have a great Christmas and best wishes for 2017.

Last few UK Tour dates re scheduled

Due to logistical problems with the bands forthcoming French tour starting in November the last three UK tour dates have had to be postponed until next year. Camberley on Tuesday 8th November has been re scheduled to take place on Friday 12th May 2017. Epsom on 29th November has yet to be rescheduled and East Grinstead on Wednesday 30th November will now take place on Friday 21st April 2017. Apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused but it was proving impossible to fit the dates in with the travel demands of the French tour locations. Because there is a matinee at 2.00pm and evening show at 8.00pm at every location the guys are having to arrive the night before every show which on the occasions around the remaining UK dates were proving impractical. For those who were hoping to attend these dates the good news is theres something still to look forward too in the new year.

The show at Barking on Friday 7th October 2016 which had to be cancelled because of a fire at the Theatre has now been re scheduled to take place on Saturday 22nd April 2017. An extra ‘An Evening with’ show will then follow the next day Sunday 23rd April at The Mill at Sonning, Reading, Berkshire.

New CD Compilation release.

A new CD compilation ‘La Legend continue’ will be available soon from this site. Produced primarily for their forthcoming tour of France it will feature many of the Rubettes French hits as well as their international hits with some selected album tracks and some new bonus recordings you won’t have heard before. Complete with an 8 page booklet including  photos and biog. of new keyboard player Steve Innes Etherington.

UK Tour continues

2nd leg of the UK tour continues on 21st September at the Brindley in Runcorn. If you missed out on the 1st leg last April/May you won’t want to miss out this time around. I’m sure you’ve read the great reviews but they bare no comparison to actually being there to see it live on the night. There are no plans to repeat the show in the future so these last 20 dates may be your last chance to spend an ‘Evening With’ your guys. All tour dates are listed in the ‘On Tour’ pages.

The reactions from everyone who have seen the new acoustic show so far has been tremendous, look at : The Rubettes featuring Alan Williams chez vous

The guys can’t wait till September to do it all over again.
