Portsmouth Guildhall presents one of the most loved bands of the 70s, The Blockheads! They will be performing a large selection of their classic songs spanning over five decades including ‘What a Waste’, ‘Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll’, ‘Hit Me with Your Rhythm Stick’ and ‘Reasons to be Cheerful, Part 3’.

Formed in 1977 and originally fronted by lead singer Ian Dury, the band has continued to perform since Ian’s death in 2000. The band still boasts original members Chaz Jankel (guitar and keyboards), Mick Gallagher (keyboards and piano) and John Turnbull (vocals and guitar) along with an impressive band including John Roberts and Nathan King with a rolling line-up of saxophonists and their new lead vocalist to be announced.

The Blockheads will be the first concert to take in place in The Box – a new 800 standing capacity venue within Portsmouth Guildhall.
