Do you have any old friends who remember the Pele album Fireworks?

Ian Prowse in Pele

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:
www.o2academyliverpool.co.uk

You can now also become a fan of Pele on Facebook!
