Still rockin’ after 20 years

Still rockin’ after 20 years

Aberdeen's first and funniest tribute act The Bloody Marys celebrate the 20th anniversary of their first sell-out Christmas show at Aberdeen’s legendary Capitol Theatre with a Lemon Tree gig this Saturday.

In 1995, the transvestite trio played in front of 2000 people to a packed house, a feat they smashed the following year by playing two nights in a row, again to a capacity crowd.

As is now something of an Aberdeen Christmas tradition, the ‘monsters of frock’ will once again revive their risqué Christmas set to delight their loyal following of fans.

As well as their usual off the wall Yuletide classics, the band will of course pay tribute to the classics from Abba, The Rocky Horror Show to their legendary Take That routines (dance moves included!).

Singer Ian Gray says: "Our Christmas Show is always a favourite, but as it’s 20 years since our first Capitol Show, it's going to be a special night indeed. We promise all the old nonsense, and of course some new surprises again with the help of Aberdeen audio visual specialists A-Line."

The band - Ian Gray on vocals, guitarist Barry Dodds and Steve Morrison on keyboards - have been wowing crowds since their reformation in 2011.

In the 90s as well as their Capitol performances, the trio won the title of Holsten Pils band of the year 1995 and their farewell concert in 1999 sold out the Music Hall.

Tickets for The Bloody Marys Christmas Stocking 2015 on Saturday December 5 at The Lemon Tree, are available online at www.aberdeenperformingarts.com, by phone at 01224 641122 and at Aberdeen Box Office at the Music Hall and His Majesty’s Theatre.
