Ian to play for Bob Harris this Friday

Ian Prowse will perform a short set at the request of the legendary broadcaster Bob Harris at the magnificent Palm House in Sefton Park, Liverpool this Friday 25 March.

Bob became a fan of Ian’s work last year when Ian took part in a pilot TV special hosted by Bob and filmed in Paul McCartney’s childhood home.

This Friday will take the form of ‘An auidience with’ Bob Harris and will include many of his amazing stories concerning John Lennon, Springsteen, Brian Wilson and many others.

Bob was the anchorman on the Old Grey Whistle test which ran for many years on the BBC and introduced Britons to many great artists.

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

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:

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

Ian gets holy for Janice Long

Ian and Janice

In what is being described as ‘a kind of live Desert Island Disks’ by its organisers, the ‘In Conversation With…’ evenings at Liverpool Anglican Cathedral starting this month will give audiences a chance to get to the heart of what makes some of the city’s most respected and well-loved names tick.

The series begins on Thursday March 25 2010 when the legendary radio presenter Janice Long will be interviewed by BBC Radio Merseyside presenter Dave Monks; her favourite songs will be performed by Ian Prowse of local legends Amsterdam. Scandinavian songstress Ragz and Ian McNabb will also be performing.

Ian commented “I’m so excited to do this for our mate Janice and get the chance to sing my song in such a beautiful building, you can’t go anywhere in Liverpool without turning a corner and seeing that  magnificent edifice”.

Tickets for ‘In Conversation With…Janice Long’ and ‘In Conversation With…Mike McCartney’ are on sale now and can be purchased at www.cathedralshop.com or by calling 0151 702 7255.
