Ray Davies and Stomp will perform in Canterbury
TWO of the acts featured in Sunday’s Olympic Closing Ceremony will be playing at The Marlowe Theatre in the coming months.
The internationally-acclaimed percussion group Stomp were second on stage in the three-hour show, which was seen by an estimated 26,000 TV viewers along with 80,000 spectators and 10,000 athletes in the stadium.
The slot, which saw the harnessed drummers perform a choreographed routine on a replica of the London Eye, was followed later in the ceremony by a longer, spectacular piece in which they recreated the hustle and bustle of London life.
Stomp will perform a week long series of shows at the Marlowe from Tuesday, February 19 to Saturday, February 23. Tickets are on sale now,
The evening, which celebrated the best of British music and culture, would not have been complete without an appearance one of our most successful and influential songwriters, Ray Davies. The former Kinks frontman performed his quintessential London hit, Waterloo Sunset. Ray will be at The Marlowe on Sunday, September 30.
Tickets for both acts are available from the Box Office on 01227 787787 or at www.marlowetheatre.com.
