Return to ‘STEELTOWN’: 35th AnniversaryTour.

The band will be performing songs from their classic, Multi-million selling album ‘Steeltown’

‘Steeltown’ is the second studio album and was recorded at ABBA’s Polar Studios in Stockholm with Steve Lillywhite producing. It was released on 19 October, 1984. Bruce Watson remembers the time very well, amid the nationwide strife back in the UK, fully in the grip of the Miners Strike: “We started work on Steeltown back in June 1984 at Abba’s studio. We worked alongside Steve in Studio One as Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber worked on ‘Chess’ next door in Studio Two. Stockholm felt like the most expensive place on earth – it’s as if we were on a different planet to how things were back home – my Dad was a miner, so what we did was knuckle down to hard work for six weeks”.

Regarded by many as a classic, the multi-million selling Steeltown went straight to the Number 1 slot in the album charts.

The band will perform songs from the album as well as the classic hits and live favourites including

Harvest Home – Fields of Fire – In A Big Country – Chance – Wonderland – Look Away – The Teacher
