Share this article

Sixties singer Andy Fairweather Low and his band, The Low Riders will appear at the Platform in Morecambe this Saturday, April 4.

Andy first came to prominence at the vanguard of the new youthful expression of music as the lead singer in Amen Corner.

The 60s saw them clock up hit after pop hit. Songs such as ‘Bend Me Shape Me’, ‘Hello Suzy’, ‘(If Paradise is) Half As Nice’ are internationally remembered to this day.

Since the early days Andy has gone on to work with Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Elton John, The Who, BB King, Joe Cocker, Steve Winwood, the Bee Gees, Ringo Starr, Dave Edmunds, Georgie Fame, Phil Collins, Van Morrison, Gerry Rafferty, Chris Rea, Sheryl Crow, Pete Townshend and hundreds more.

Now following a solo path, his first solo album in 24 years Sweet Soulful Music was released late in 2007 followed by The Very Best Of Andy Fairweather Low which was released in the UK in June 2008.

A world tour as musical director with Roger Waters band then a European tour with Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings might be difficult to top for most people - but not for Andy Fairweather Low who sailed smoothly into a major solo tour last summer with some of the world’s finest musicians in his band.

The show starts at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £20 and are available from the box office at Morecambe Visitor Information Centre, Platform Buildings, Marine Road Central, Morecambe. They are also available from the Lancaster Visitor Information Centre at The Storey.
