John Otway and band in Leeds
ROCK veteran John Otway, who once dubbed himself “rock ‘n’ roll’s greatest failure”, will be appearing in Leeds in May.
Recently, his line “Beware of the flowers cause I’m sure they’re going to get you yeah” was voted the seventh greatest lyric of all time in a BBC poll. Otway and his band attack his favourite set list with gusto, leaving plenty of room for his trademark anarchy, fun and acrobatics. John Otway and the Big Band is at City Varieties on May 23.
