Rock away the cobwebs with band’s anniversary gig

ROCKERS Seventh Son will take to the stage in Rotherham to celebrate their 40th anniversary —after being delayed for two years due to Covid-19.

The NWOBHM (New Wave of British Heavy Metal) band will finally mark four decades in music with a gig at The Cutlers’ Arms on Westgate on Saturday, June 11. 

The Barnsley band’s lead singer Bri Shaughnessy said: “It’s the Queen's birthday — so it’s by Royal appointment! 

“It’s our first gig in Yorkshire in over two years due to the pandemic. 

“Our first gig back was at Mearfest North in aid of still born children in Newcastle in May and we also played at the Rockers Reunited festival in Matlock, Derbyshire — delivering the audience some real Yorkshire grit which went down a storm.

“We’ll be celebrating the band’s 40th anniversary at the Cutlers’ which we couldn’t do in 2020 due to Covid, so better late than never.

“We’ve had some interesting ‘incidents’ in our previous gigs at Cutlers’ including once setting off all the pub’s fire alarms which brought the gig to a halt!

“We hope to see as many Rotherham rockers there as possible to blow away the cobwebs of the last couple of years.”

The gig starts at 7pm with a support band and entry is £5.
