Fans of Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band will be delighted to learn that Roger Ruskin Spear, Rodney Slater and Sam Spoons have teamed up with super-pianist Dave Glasson to bring more fun and music to the Platform on Saturday July 12.
The Bonzos have appeared with members of Monty Python, The Beatles, Eric Clapton, The Kinks and The Who, as well as having a Top 5 hit with Urban Spaceman. The musical missing link between The Goons and Monty Python, they featured as the house band on Do Not Adjust Your Set, a forerunner of Monty Python, with Michael Palin, Eric Idle and Terry Jones, as well as a young David Jason. Comedians Stephen Fry, Adrian Edmondson, Eddie Izzard, Chris Morris and Bill Bailey have all named the Bonzos as a formative influence. In their 50th anniversary year, come along and enjoy diabolical mayhem from the largest number of Bonzos still playing together anywhere on the surface of the earth. The show starts at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £16, £15 (concessions) from the box office on 01524 582803, online at www.lancaster.gov.uk/platform-tickets or in person at Morecambe or Lancaster Visitor Information Centres.
