Classic Rock Show brings riff monsters to Harrogate


By Graham Chalmers

It’s been described as the “classic rock fan’s ultimate live juke box” but, then, it does feature the top 20 greatest guitar riffs ever.

The blockbusting Classic Rock Show show hits Harrogate’s Royal Hall on January 23 with a live band renowned for blowing the socks off some legendary rock songs.

After a sellout tour in 2014, this critically-acclaimed show is set to celebrate its fifth birthday in some style.

The setlist runs from the extraordinary opening sounds of Led Zeppelin’s Whole Lotta Love to Queen’s powerhouse anthem We Will Rock You via AC/DC’s Back in Black and everything in between.

Zeppelin’s famous song was voted the greatest guitar riff of all time by BBC Radio 2 listeners last year.

The two and a half hour show also sees a virtuoso band of musicians romping through hits by The Eagles, Led Zeppelin, Dire Straits, Pink Floyd, Queen, Deep Purple, AC/DC, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Who, Wings, Eric Clapton, ZZ Top, Steely Dan, Fleetwood Mac and more.

Tickets are available from the Harrogate Theatre box office on 01423 502116 or book online at
