Magic Bus make a great ‘Substitute’ for The Who...

Johnny Warman’s Magic Bus will play all The Who’s greatest hits in the Total Who show at The Apex on Saturday 21 August.

 

Their two-hour show includes songs such as ‘Won't Get Fooled Again’, ‘My Generation’, ‘Pinball Wizard’, ‘Who Are You’, ‘Substitute’, ‘Squeeze Box’ and ‘I Can See For Miles’.

 

Front-man Johnny Warman is no stranger to the charts himself; he was signed to Ringo Starr's record label and had a string of hits in the 1970s and 1980s, including ‘Screaming Jets’, which featured Peter Gabriel.

 

Johnny's love of The Who inspired him to form a band of top session musicians, who between them have worked with acts such as Elton John, David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen and Foo Fighters and even Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend and John Entwistle themselves!

 

For Johnny, it's all about paying tribute, not mimicking the originals: "We're not big headed and don't get carried away thinking this was our music. And we don't dress up as The Who, smash up the stage, or swing microphones around. It's all about doing justice to songs that changed the face of popular music."

 

"It's an amazing show," said Johnny, "we perform all the classics and tell some fun stories about how the songs came about. It's full on. We pack in as much as we can. We make sure people get their money's worth."

 

The Total Who Show is at The Apex on Saturday 21 August at 7.30pm. Ring the box office on 01284 758000 or see the website www.theapex.co.uk for more details.
