  • Show Description
  • Back by popular demand following the debut of this show at Crazy Coqs this Spring, Shaw weaves a fascinating, moving and often jaw-drop funny musical tale from these songs from the 70s and early 80s. Growing up through his singles collection, from a boy to a man, this powerhouse one-act performance, takes in Gilbert and Elton, Marc Bolan, Bowie, Motown and Shaw’s obsession with the great pop masterpieces of the strangest decade in popular music. Tales of Spaceships, spacehoppers, school and terrible telly jostle with some of the most moving songs ever written including ‘Alone Again’, ‘Life On Mars’, ‘Someone Saved My Life Tonight’. These are all newly arranged and delivered in this award-winning, hugely popular showman’s extraordinary style.
