The Glitter Band are delighted to announce the return of legendary original lead singer JOHN SPRINGATE to the band with immediate effect, completing an exciting new line up for 2009. New show dates to follow in the coming days!

This new line up now features, not only Pete Phipps, the original drummer and constant member since 1972, but also long serving keyboard player EDDIE SPENCE in this *all new* show. The band will perform all of the popular hits of the *Glitter* genre, made famous in the 1970s and still adored today and we are taking bookings for 2009 & 2010.

Pete and the guys are over the moon to have their old mate Springy back onboard. The new line up will be as follows:

John Springate-Lead Vocals and Bass Guitar
Pete Phipps-Drums and Vocals
Eddie Spence-Guitar and Vocals
Graham Clayton-Bass Guitar/Drums and Vocals
Dominic Rodgers-Guitar and Vocals
Marc Pearson-Guitar and Vocals

The show will also feature the ALL NEW legendary STAR GUITAR (As debuted at the 2008 Birmingham International Music Show). This guitar has been commissioned by The Glitter Band for Marc Pearson and has been hand crafted by JOHN BIRCH Guitars, the company who built the original Star Guitar, as a tribute to the late great GERRY SHEPHARD who sadly passed away in 2003.

Songs performed include the following:

Rock and Roll Parts 1 & 2, Hello Hello I’m Back Again, People Like you, Let’s Get Together Again, Angel Face, Just For You, Do You Wanna Touch, Doin’ Alright With The Boys, I’m The Leader Of The Gang, I Love You Love Me Love, Goodbye My Love and MANY MANY MORE!
