The Who, one of the most influential rock bands in the world, formed in 1964. Their classic line-up consisted of lead singer Roger Daltrey, guitarist and singer Pete Townshend, bass guitarist John Entwistle, and drummer Keith Moon. Selling over 100 million records worldwide and holding a reputation for their incredible live shows and studio work, they bring us an array of iconic hits including Baba O’Reilly, My Generation, Pinball Wizard and Who Are You to name just a few. In 2018 The Who continue to write new music and now tour with Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, Zak Starkey, Simon Townshend, Jon Button, John Coury, Loren Gold and Frank Simes.
Roger Daltrey has been a world famous star since the early sixties when as lead singer of The Who he embarked upon a career as a recording and performing artist that ranks him as one of the four or five best known lead singers in the history of rock music.
In 2005 Roger Daltrey was awarded a CBE for his services to music and charity. Since 2000 Roger has been a patron of the Teenage Cancer Trust, a charity that builds specialised wards for teenagers with cancer in the UK.
In 2018 Roger has shown no signs of slowing down. As well as returning to the U.S. for a string of solo shows he has released a well-received new top ten solo album As Long As I Have You and with his autobiography due for release in October Roger remains as passionate as ever about his music and charity work.
There are few heavy metal bands that have managed to scale the heights that Judas Priest have during their nearly 50-year career. Their presence and influence remains at an all-time high as evidenced by their 2018 Firepower release which was the highest charting album of their career, a 2010 Grammy Award win for Best Metal Performance, 2006 VH1 Rock Honors recipients, plus 2017 and 2019 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominations.
They toured the world with their Firepower 2018/2019 tour which was amazingly well received everywhere - the band had planned to celebrate their 50th anniversary by taking their JUDAS PRIEST - 50 Heavy Metal Years world tour out on the road in 2020 but due to the issues with Covid 19 this had to be rescheduled - hopefully 2021 will see the start of the celebrations with their touring plans taking off again - all being well this will continue into 2022.
Having sold well over 70 million records worldwide and over 40 top ten hits, including Red Red Wine, Kingston Town, Can't Help Falling in Love and One In Ten, UB40 are one of the world's biggest and most loved reggae bands.
They released their last album A Real Labour of Love to critical acclaim and topping the charts for many weeks at #2. Last year they toured arenas around the world to celebrate their new album and 40th anniversary. Now in 2020, they are back in the studio working on a brand-new album to come later this year and plans for another worldwide arena tour are underway.

The Holy are a Finnish alternative rock band formed in Helsinki in 2014. Their highly anticipated and critically acclaimed debut album Daughter was released in 2018.
The quintet has been shaking the grounds of the Nordic indie scene since the release of their More Escher And Random Notes EP in 2016. Mixes of post-punk, Bruce Springsteen and Peter Gabriel with kraut influences are often mentioned when speaking about The Holy’s well crafted sound and songwriting.
Hailing from one of the darkest countries in the world, The Holy is best known for their Nordic melancholy, highly explosive live shows, and for the unusual band formation that includes two drummers who keep the pulse high all the time. The lead singer’s tense and timeless voice and the guitar loaded wall of sound you often makes you feel comfortably uncomfortable.
Lake Jons, rolling in like thick mist on a sweet northern wind. Born from the woods by the darkest waters, from where the band got their name. Since their formation in 2014, the band has found champions in the big cities, charming their audience with their rough samples, driving rhythms, layers of delicate vocals and unfolding guitar progressions.
Lake Jons find the harshness of the folkish disposition coupled with the beauty of a mystic melody. With their latest release The Coast, Lake Jons have left the city and rediscovered the hidden gems of the woods, their original surroundings.
