Huge excitement is building in the Amsterdam camp for the brace of shows this coming weekend.
The full 7 piece band will perform Ian Prowse’s debut classic ‘Fireworks’ in full, PLUS a rockin’ set of Amsterdam classics.
For this reason stage times will be 9 o’clock both nights. You will be able to pay on the door at both the Borderline and the Wedgewood Room shows.
Also available on the night will be the iconic ‘Pele logo in primary colours’ T-shirt as well as a signed copy of the album itself.
The venue Ian has played more than any other, the Wedgewood Rooms in Portsmouth, have insisted the final Amsterdam play ‘Fireworks’ show takes place there.
So on Sunday 22 May the full Amsterdam road show will perform the Fireworks album and the very best of Noughties Amsterdam.
Ian has performed at this famous place over 20 times in 18 years and its only fitting the show that tore Liverpool apart should be played here.

Ian Prowse in Pele
2011 will be twenty years since Ian Prowse’s first band Pele recorded the debut classic celtic pop album Fireworks for Polydor Records. The seven-piece Amsterdam extravaganza led by Fireworks composer Ian Prowse will perform the album in its fast and furious entirety on Saturday 5 March next year in Liverpool.
The album only clocks in at 37 minutes so Amsterdam will also perform a set of classics from the noughties as well as tasters from the new album.
Fireworks spawned 4 singles with hits in the UK, Portugal, France and even a number 1 in South Africa. It’s one of those great hungry debut albums from a young band eager to take on the world, there isn’t a weak song on it.
If you have any old friends from University in the early 90’s who remember those fantastic nights in Loughborough, Warwick, Wolverhampton, Kent, Glasgow, Nottingham, Stoke, Portsmouth, Leeds and many others then let them know their favourite album is being performed in full for ONE NIGHT ONLY.
Tickets are a mere £11 and are available right now from:
