Following their long awaited UK comeback on the Glitz, Blitz and 70’s Hitz tour this winter ‘An Evening With’ tour is now in the planning stages to follow early in 2016. Hoping to re establish themselves on the UK live scene after an absence of several years the guys will be appearing in ‘intimate’ Theatres throughout the UK with a totally new concept stage show in two halves where they plan to be on stage for about two hours. The first half will be dedicated to songs and stories associated with the guys before, leading up too and during the Rubettes rise to fame with a few, as yet, untold and often hilarious revelations which in themselves herald an evening not to be missed. The second half will be the band in full concert mode as always full of Hit’s and additionally some that they haven’t played for a long time never failing to revive all those wonderful memories from way back when.

Dates to be announced soon.

Paris Olympia Success


The guys played to a packed Olympia theatre in Paris and what a great show it was. The lights  and sound were brought in especially from Brussels and for the finale an extra musician and four singers were added to make it a spectacular to remember.



Looks like their French come back is complete.

Tour de France

The Guys have been invited by French TV channel France 3 to play at the starting ceremony of the second U.K. stage of the Tour de France cycle race in York on 6th July 2014. The start will be televised all over the World so maybe even the bands performance will prove to be a winner.

After 40 years the band will return to the place which hosted their very first appearance in France where in 1974 they were number one in the French charts for the first time with ‘Sugar Baby Love’ at the start of their amazing French love affair.

Marathon Man


Alan ran the Paris Marathon last year.  Yes all 26 miles (42 kilometers) in 5 hours 8 minutes.   Not bad for a musician?   Alan says he is probably fitter now than when he was in the 70’s.   Probably all that sex, drugs & Rock n’ Roll.   Will he do it again?   “Probably not” says Alan, “it was an ambition fulfilled”.   “Done that, got the medal and the tee-shirt”.   What’s next?   Maybe Everest or the South pole???

Why Paris?    Alan said he tried for London but it was over subscribed so where else but France for a Rubette with nowhere to run.   “The atmosphere was electric and it was fabulous to see all those great landmarks up close and not just from a car window” said Alan, “37,000 people started and I officially finished 23,852th”.   “About 10,000 people never finished so for me to even finish the race at the first attempt makes me proud.   The training was extremely hard but well worth it and I can recommend it to anyone who is physically fit enough, which is maybe why the other Rubettes didn’t make it”.   Alan’s run raised quite a sum of money for John’s Krishna charity which amongst other things helps care for children.
