Stavros Flatley come to Boro’s St Patrick’s Party

 

Huge local favourites The Wildcats of Kilkenny have teamed up with TV sensations Stavros Flatley and storming Bob Marley tribute band Zion for what promises to be one of the most special St Patrick Party’s ever seen on Teesside.

 

Tickets are already selling quickly for the amazing three-pronged show at what looks set to be a packed Middlesbrough Town Hall on Saturday 13 March.

 

The gig sees a speedy Middlesbrough return for the Wildcats after their sparkling Christmas show at the Town Hall Crypt, and follows a barnstorming sell-out St Patrick’s Party at the Town Hall last year.

 

A frantic fiddle-led frenzy, the Wildcats blistering mix of piano, double bass, drums and grating vocals sees them blast their way through a breathless set-list including everything from traditional Irish jigs to singalongs, cartoon classics to football anthems, and everything beyond.

 

Special guests Stavros Flatley took the country by storm last year, wowing a TV audience of millions and reaching the grand final of ITV’s smash hit Britain’s Got Talent.

The hilarious father and son duo - Demitrios and Michalakis Lagi - describe themselves as ‘two fat versions of a Greek Michael Flatley.’

 

Riverdance was never meant to be like this – but they melted the hearts of judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Piers Morgan and the public alike, and came within a whisker of grabbing the big prize and dancing for the Queen at the Royal Variety Performance.

 

Wildcats frontman Mike McGrother said: “Looks like we’ve got an amazing show here. We had a fantastic St Patrick’s gig at Boro last year and we wondered how on earth we were going to top it.

 

 

 

“But we’ve only gone and got Stavros Flatley! Only blinking Stavros Flatley! And then we thought ‘every St Pat’s gig needs a Bob Marley tribute act’ - so we went out and got the best there is. Loads of people will remember Zion after they stormed the main stage at Middlesbrough Music Live last summer. Absolutely fantastic.”

 

“So; expect plenty of cheeky banter, singalongs galore, tunes that’ll make your heart sing, and a night that’ll make these nippy winter days seem like a distant memory. Can’t wait.”
