their music, and ROLLERMANIA mayhem, was at its peak.

“It was Roller-mania, overwhelming, hysterical, pre-teen crazy apeshit
bonkers popstar love” Hi-Fi Way (Adelaide review)

Saturday Night, I Only Wanna Be With You and Rock’n’Roll Love Letter will
have you pumped and dancing all night!

The story of the Bay City Rollers has been told countless times and
charismatic frontman, Les, is on a mission, touring the world so that
audiences, old and new, can experience that unique Roller magic. Time and
time again, Les brings the house down as he takes fans on a nostalgic
journey to the rousing heyday of the Bay City Rollers. An unforgettable
experience and a perfect way to reminisce and celebrate being a teenager
during the golden era of the 70s. Remember the music! Posters on your
bedroom wall! Tiger Beat magazine. and of course ROLLERMANIA!

“Bay City Rollers featuring Les McKeown, you were fantastic and brought so
many wonderful memories back for so many people” Rock Club 40 (Sydney

“Let’s be the best that we can be. Let’s put on a show that they’re never
going to forget and that’s my attitude every single night” – Les McKeown

The Rollers have enjoyed phenomenal success and sold a whopping 70 million albums. The teenage delirium they created was akin to Beatlemania. Their run of Aussie chart hits started in 1974 with Shang-A-Lang (a fan favourite to this day) reaching #28. In 1975 they scored a #1 Australian Hit with Bye, Bye Baby. They followed that up with a string of Top 10’s – Give A Little Love, Money Honey, Saturday Night, Rock and Roll Love Letter and I Only Wanna Be With You. They also did a smashing cover of John Paul Young’s Yesterdays Hero.

This is your chance to re-live treasured moments and create new memories
with your tartan-clad hero Les McKeown and his Bay City Rollers. Don’t miss
this opportunity to be a part of another chapter in Rollermania history!

‘For those unable to go to a gig and feel in their element, Bay City Rollers
gave their generation an opportunity to reunite and take over the venue.
Just like the good old times” The Music (Adelaide review)
