Slade, one of the most exciting bands to come out of Great Britain in the past five decades, have scheduled a gig for Cardiff’s Tramshed this Christmas.
A unique blend of perfect pop rock’n’roll, outrageous flamboyance and pure fun, with no less than 23 Top-20 singles have ensured Slade become a firm favourite in the hearts of pop fans all over the world.
SLADE first hit the road in 1966, touring throughout Great Britain and Europe and becoming a regular concert attraction. Joining forces with the former Animals bass guitarist and Jimi Hendrix Experience manager, Chas Chandler, Slade achieved their first chart hit in May 1971 with the Bobby Marchan song Get Down And Get With It then, released in October of the same year Coz I Luv You was the band’s first No-1 and a huge hit across Europe.
Throughout the seventies, Slade became one of Europe’s biggest bands, touring and recording continually and making regular trips to America, Japan and other parts of the world. Slade’s catalogue of hits are synonymous with the era:- Take Me Bak ‘Ome, Mama We’er All Crazee Now, Cum On Feel The Noize, Gudbye T’ Jane, along with the many others provided a soundtrack to the Glam Generation and are still today, heavily featured on any retrospective of the time.
Now in 2020, Slade continue to tour with their latest incarnation, led by founder member Dave Hill on Lead Guitar with John Berry on Lead Vocals, Bass, Acoustic Guitar and Violin, Russell Keefe on vocals and keys and Alex has toured with Wilko Johnson.
Slade today is still one of the most exciting bands on the road, and their stage performance is a dynamic, powerful and exhilarating roller-coaster ride of pure unadulterated rock’n’roll.
