One of the biggest pop bands of the 1970s, Showaddywaddy headline the Spinney Theatre in Northampton this weekend.

The band were famed for their retro-inspired rock ‘n’ roll hits and have sold more than 20 million records.

Formed in 1973 by the amalgamation of two groups, Choise and The Golden Hammers, the eight-member Showaddywaddy became known for their unusual band format, consisting of two vocalists, two drummers, two guitarists and two bass players.

With 50 Top Of The Pops performances under their belt, the group went on to top the bill at the prestigious Golden Orpheus World Music Festival, performing to a TV audience of 300 million.

This year, Showaddywaddy celebrate 40 years together. Showaddywaddy play on Sunday, December 1.

Doors open at 7.30pm and tickets cost £24.50.
