Due to popular demand after his first one man show, My Life Story, Suggs is treading the boards again.

If the first show was about how on earth he got there, Suggs: What a King Cnut, at The Anvil on February 7, is about the surprises that awaited him when he did. Vertigo on the roof of Buckingham Palace; nearly blowing the closing ceremony of the Olympics; watching his underpants fall to earth on Bowie’s driveway. In this business when you can be washed up at any minute, he asks ‘How have I managed to get away with it for so long?'

On February 10, the Icons of the 80s featuring Go West, Nik Kershaw and Cutting Crew join forces for a truly incredible concert experience. Go West had their first hit single with We Close Our Eyes, followed by Call Me and King of Wishful Thinking.

Nik Kershaw first achieved chart success in 1984 with Wouldn’t It Be Good?, before releasing Won’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me. A prolific writer for other artists, Nik also penned the number one single The One and Only for Chesney Hawkes. Grammy nominated Anglo-Canadian rock band Cutting Crew will always be remembered for their definitive song (I Just) Died In Your Arms, which helped shaped the musical sounds of the 1980s club scene.

Marti Pellow comes to The Anvil on June 7. Having achieved the highest accolades with Wet Wet Wet, Marti now has a highly successful career as both a solo artist and a leading musical theatre star, performing from Broadway to Tokyo, and London’s West End. His solo orchestral concerts, intimate jazz residencies, acoustic tours and large arena pop concerts have built his solo career and rewarded his large following of fans with an extraordinary journey.
