Arthur Brown brings his ‘crazy world’ to the region this weekend.

The singer is on the road celebrating 45 years since the release of his classic hit, Fire.

He was presented with the Showman of The Year Award by Classic Rock magazine and made a special appearance on Alice Cooper’s recent tour.

Brown first hit the scene in 1967 after being spotted by Pete Townshend, of The Who.

A successful US tour followed, with appearances with the likes of The Doors, Frank Zappa and Jefferson Airplane. A year later Arthur recorded Fire, which propelled him to fame across the world.

Peter Gabriel, Alice Cooper and Bruce Dickenson have all cited Arthur Brown as a major influence with numerous other artists covering his work.

Brown has more than 20 albums to his name and has made numerous appearances at the Glastonbury festival.

Arthur Brown plays the Market Harborough Leisure Centre this Saturday, March 16.

Support is by The Moulettes.

Doors open at 8pm and tickets cost £15 in advance.
