The Doors Alive Plus Guests
Date: 6th May 2017
Details:  The Doors Alive are the No.1 tribute band to the legendary, Sixties, Californian rock guru's - The Doors.

They re-create the sound, look, presence and feel of a real 1960's Doors concert perfectly and effortlessly, transporting the crowd back in time with such classic hits as 'Light My Fire', 'When The Music's Over, Riders On The Storm, The End and many more. The singer, Willie, captures the attitude, look and voice of the late, great Jim Morrison, and the other band members have honed the other Doors members playing styles note for note.

To achieve that authentic Sixties sound, the band use the very same instruments that members of the Doors originally used. These include a vintage Fender Rhodes Bass keyboard, a vintage Vox Continental keyboard and a vintage Gibson S.G guitar.

Under 18ís must be accompanied by an adult and seated on the balcony upstairs.

Doors: 7:30pm

Tickets: £12 ADV/£14 OTD

Classic Rock Society Presents: Magenta
Date: 13th May 2017
Details:  Magenta are very excited to announce that theyíll be returning to the Citadel during their biggest-ever sequence of gigs in Spring 2017. The concert will coincide with the release of the band's as-yet-unnamed seventh studio album to hit shelves in April 2017, their first since the release of the acclaimed "Twenty Seven Club" in 2013. The album will - as usual - feature the award-winning talents of Rob Reed (keyboards, bass, guitar), Christina Booth (vocals) and Chris Fry (lead guitar) alongside guest drummer Andy Edwards (IQ, Kiama, Frost*). The album will also see the band returning to long-form material with two 20 minute epics.

Rob Reed says:

"We haven't played live a huge amount in the last couple of years, so it will be great to get back on the road for an extended series of dates and play pieces from the new album alongside some of our older material."

The band will also release a DVD "Live at Leamington Spa" on November 12th, and will launch the DVD with a special acoustic show at Acapela Studios in Cardiff on the same day.

2017 marks the 15th anniversary of Magenta as a live act, an award winning career which has seen the band play in UK, Europe and America at events such as Baja Prog (Mexico-2003), Rosfest (USA-2005), IO Pages Fest (Netherlands - 2006), Nearfest (USA-2007), Summers End (UK - 2005, 2008, 2011, 2014), Night of the Prog (Germany - 2008) Celebr8 (UK - 2012) and Verona Prog (Italy - 2012).

What people have said about Magenta's live performances:

"Flawless" - Prog Magazine

"A Stunning Performance" - Where Worlds Collide

"Will linger long in the memory" - Fireworks
