Shakin’ Stevens announces Rhyl date as part of 2011 UK tour

THE biggest selling artist of a decade, Shakin’ Stevens, celebrates 30 years since his first UK hit Hot Dog, with a 19-date UK tour.

Shaky will be accompanied in the celebrations by his 10-strong band, performing songs from the musical genres he has recorded, combining hits, rock and country blues – and a few surprises from over the years.

As well as the UK tour, Stevens will be touring and performing at festivals throughout Europe, including Switzerland and Germany, as well as Denmark and Sweden, where his album The Collection recently topped the charts.

At the end of 2009, Shakin’ Stevens released an ultimate collection box set, the 147 track The Epic Masters, featuring unique mini vinyl style CDs, and 20-page colour booklet with sleeve notes from the man himself.

He appeared at the 2008 Glastonbury Festival to the biggest crowd ever seen as the Saturday main stage opener.

Shakin’ Stevens can be seen at the Rhyl Pavilion on February 16. Ring 01745 330000 or visit
