Dr and the Medics were created almost at the dawn of the 80’s, in 1982 by The Rev Dr. Clive Thomas Jackson.
The band has had a very colourful and successful career as both recording artists and performers. Undoubtedly they are best known for their massive 1986 No 1 ‘Spirit in the Sky’ which sold over 24 Million copies world wide and was number 1 in 23 countries! They are also recognized as a great live act, in 1985 the NME referred to them as ‘THE live band of the year’
Often promoted as 1 hit wonders, the band claim to be the only 1 hit wonder to have had 2 hits as their next single ‘Burn’ got to number 21! But as they don’t make documentaries or publish books about one and a half hit wonders, the Doctor keeps quiet about ‘The other hit’ and wears his ‘One Hit Wonder’ badge with pride!
If you get a chance to see the band we guarantee you will return home with a smile on your face!
The evening includes support from Lion, featuring Hybrid5 frontman, Dean Wright, and optional entry to our after show party, with dancing in Stage Left to the sounds of Lion.
