  1. Hello everyone, hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and new year. Keep up your fantastic tribute to ‘The Shadows ‘. See you all again next year.

    Very best wishes to you all.

    Norman & Helen.

        1. Hi David,

          It can be a bit Hit and Miss with Theatre locations – sometimes there are just not any suitable for a variety of reasons – Manchester or close to would be great – keep an eye to 2019 dates as they come in. Thanks for writing in.

  2. Hi, do you ever play up north? Manchester or Teesside even. My dad loves the shadows I’m sure he’d love to see you. Although he lives in Teesside I’m in Manchester. Cheers

  3. Hello Members of The Bootleg Shadows,

    Since my Youth (17) I’m a Big Fan of The Shadows – my Favorite Number is “Apache”.
    The Members of The Shadows are now too Old (Brian Bennett will be this year ‘76’, Bruce Welch ‘75’ and my favorite: Hank Marvin ‘75’ ) for tours and I’m afraid they don’t want it!

    It’s great that The Bootleg Shadows makes Live Music of my Favorites! With pleasure I listened to your Videos and have I now only one question:

    “When comes The Bootleg Shadows to the Netherlands for Performances?”

    Good luck with your Performances and hopefully soon I will see and hear you in the Netherlands !

  4. Hello Jan
    We would love to play in the Neatherlands, you never know what will happen in the future, thanks for your great comments!
    Cheers Geoff

  5. Would love to see you at the Cliff’s Southend. It was one of the venues The Shadows used for their Final Tour. Place was sold out so I reckon you would receive a huge welcome

    1. Would love to but a 1600 seater is a bit too big for us. Thanks for the message…. we’ll have to see if there is anything else we could look at in that area.

  6. The Shadows my favourite band of all time followed them since the early 60’s – I live between Chester and Liverpool – you must come north – possibly to the Floral Pavillion New Brighton, Philharmonic in Liverpool – these venues would really suit you

  7. Hi all we based our holidays around your show in weston super mare, we came down from shrewsbury and we are sure glad we did,fantastic night,and very professional artists

    1. Thanks. We ought to get sponsorship from the Weston tourist board for attracting visitors. Your comments are much appreciated

    1. Hi Andrew. Belated notifications but in case you don’t keep in touch via our Facebook group or the web site we are playing in Deal on 22nd June (last played there Sept 2022),. We also played in Sittingbourne early this year and hope to return in 2025.

  8. Is your booking at Camberley Theatre on Saturday 23rd September 2017 a firm booking as I tried to book tickets today in person at the theatre and it did not appear to be listed on their computer database. I look forward to hearing from you.

    1. Sorry about that. Maybe jumped the gun putting that on the web site as the date and contract details are not finalised yet. Will be a week or two to sort it all out.

  9. Are you playing Weston super mare again this year. My hubby is a huge shadows fan and I would love to treat him to one of your shows for his 60th birthday present. We live near Bath and none are your listed shows are close to us.

    1. Hi Tommy, unfortunately not this year – sometimes we can’t get back to the same Theatres every year, hopefully for 2019

  10. I was at Lakeside last weekend and you guys were just amazing.

    I would love to see you do an album in the Shadows style but not with all Shadows tracks as I think you could do some good interpretation’s of other tracks in the style of the Shadows.

    When are you in Derby next ?

    1. Thanks for your support.
      We do a Beatles medley in the style of the Shads and yes it would be fun to do more like that. We do well over 2 hours in our full theatre show so Lakeside was half a show for us.
      Our usual Derby venue the Guildhall had to cancel due to repair work and they have more structural issues so not sure. Telford on Saturday is our next Midlands date.

  11. Hi thanks guys for a fantastic evening we were all looking forward to seeing you especially after what we’ve all been through. You certainly didn’t disappoint we had a great time and can’t wait for you to come to Norfolk again when will it be soon please

    1. Thanks for your support. We have two booked in Suffolk – Leiston this year and Felixstowe next year but nothing yet for Norfolk. With theatres only just reopening it will take a while to get more dates in the diary,
      All the best, The Bootleg Shadows

    1. Not at the moment Eddie. Numbers were poor last time but I think partly as we played Telford a few weeks earlier. Not sure if the theatre would book us again but most theatres will wait 2 years before re-booking. We’re at Market Drayton this Saturday which is not far away – about 20 miles from Stafford and Telford. We won’t be doing Telford either this year. Next Midlands gigs this year are Stourport in June then Derby later in the year. Thanks for your support.
