Have your say

The Eagles sold more than 150 millions record, are the highest-selling American band in US history, they’ve had seven number-one singles, won six Grammys, five American Music Awards, and racked up six number one albums.

I think it’s fair to say the band did pretty well for themselves.

The reason for telling you this? The Eagles, or at least the next best thing, are taking to the stage tomorrow in what should be a terrific night at the Grand Theatre.

The Illegal Eagles (see what they’ve done there?) were recently described in the Daily Telegraph as “accomplished and proficient players, with a beautiful and pitch-perfect singer.”

They will play all the hits like Hotel California, The Last Resort, Tequila Sunrise and Lyin’ Eyes.

The band has toured the UK and Europe and established themselves not only as the ultimate Eagles tribute band, but as one of the most authentic and talented tribute shows in the world.

The band are on stage at 7.30pm tomorrow and tickets (from £22.50) are still available. Go to to book.

Also, if you’re feeling in the mood to try out a new forms of theatre, The Grand has what sounds like an interesting show lined up on Sunday when David Hughes Dance’s The Red Room comes to the theatre for what is being dubbed as “a horror-filled night”.

Set in a savage, fantastical world, The Red Room will take you on a terrifying journey, accompanied by a dramatic original score, which draws on classical Baroque influences from Handel, Teleman and Vivaldi.

The collaboration between acclaimed dancer David Hughes (choreography) and award-winning theatre maker Al Seed (direction) is a contemporary and visually shocking interpretation of Edgar Allan Poe’s 19th century classic tale, The Masque of the Red Death. It features ballet, breakdance, contemporary dance and energetic physical theatre to create a truly macabre horror show.

Tickets at £10 (£7 concessions) are available on
