About 20th Century Boy
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Starring Sue Jenkins (Brookside/Casualty), Luke Bailey (Waterloo Road) and Warren Sollars (Mamma Mia!)
Featuring some of the greatest pop songs ever written, 20th Century Boy tells the story of Marc Bolan and his band T Rex, exposing some of the myths and taking the audience on a tearful yet joyful journey through Marc’s fascinating life.
Rocker, poet, electric warrior, king of glam and godfather of punk, Bolan was arguably the biggest rock star the UK had ever seen. ‘Bigger than The Beatles’ the media said. Before his tragic death in 1977, just days short of his 30th birthday, Bolan lived life at breakneck speed creating a series of iconic images, a string of number 1 hits, and an army of obsessive fans.
Packed with all T Rex’s 70s hits, staged by Gary Lloyd (Thriller Live) and with a West End cast, 20th Century Boy is a glorious story and a celebration of Glam rock at its colourful best.
‘A glorious evening which had the audience on its feet and dancing in the aisles.’ - Evening Star
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for 20th Century Boy are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
