Win a pair of tickets to see Chuck Berry in the UK, November/ December 2009
Competition now closed
Chuck Berry is over in the UK this winter for an extensive fifteen date tour of the UK.
The Rock 'n Roll pioneer is over in November and December, with dates in Liverpool, Newcastle, Glasgow, Leeds, Birmingham, Oxford, Southend, Bournemouth, Newport, Swansea, Sheffield, Manchester, Llandudno and London (Hammersmith), kicking-off in Liverpool at the Olympia on Saturday 21st November.
A true entertainer, Chuck developed his style through years of gigging and gauging the audience's reaction to his many feats. His first release 'Maybelline', back in 1955 shot to the top of the American R&B charts, hitting the number five spot in the pop charts - not bad, considering the 'underground' status of rhythm and blues at the time. The years that followed saw numerous R&B chart-toppers, with only one number one scored in the US "Hot 100" - the saucy 'My Ding-a-ling' in 1972.
Chuck celebrated his 83rd birthday just a few weeks back, and is as busy as ever, with a US tour preceding his flight over the pond to the UK. Tickets for the UK dates cost £45, for all but the Hammersmith date, which costs £59 (+ booking fee).
We are delighted to be able to offer one lucky reader a pair of tickets to any of the UK dates, with the exception of the Hammersmith date.
