Catch 70s rhythm and blues band Dr Feelgood at The Queen’s Theatre in Barnstaple on Friday, January 12

Iconic 70s rhythm and blues band Dr Feelgood are back in Barnstaple this Friday.

The Queen’s Theatre concert isn’t the first local visit for this enduring band that still has a reputation for being one of the most popular and exciting live acts around.

The raw and uncompromising style of their performance resulted in the album Stupidity that immediately went to the number one position in the UK charts.

Dr Feelgood have enjoyed global success with a string of hit singles including Milk and Alcohol, Roxette, Back in the Night, Down at the Doctors, She Does it Right, Going Back Home and See You Later Alligator - which gave the group their first gold record.

The current line-up features Kevin Morris on drums and Phil Mitchell on bass, both 29 years in the band and Steve Walwyn on guitar who has been with the band for 23 years. Vocalist Robert Kane (formerly of the Animals) is the most recent addition – joining in 1999 after the tragic death of Lee Brilleaux.

The show starts at 7.30pm. For tickets call 01271 316063 or go to www.thequeenstheatre.co.uk
