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.
