Do you like prog, glam and rock and a lot of carry on? Well say no more - The Tubes are back at the Leicester Square Theatre on the 22nd and 23rd July.
The Tubes shocked London before Punk happened, and for the younger generation this is a performance that has merit in musicianship as well as the theatrical side of the show.

The Tubes are a San Francisco-based rock band, whose 1975 debut album included the hit single 'What Do You Want From Life' and 'White Punks On Dope'. The latter song peaked at number 28 on the UK singles chart.
The line: "...hang myself when I get enough rope" in the song 'White Punks On Dope' later inspired the title of the 1978 album by The Clash, 'Give Em Enough Rope'.
You can also hear their influences on The B-52s and Talking Heads albums.
The band's live performances combined quasi-pornography with wild satires of media, consumerism, and politics. They are perhaps best-remembered for their 1983 single 'She's A Beauty', a Top 10 U.S. hit with a frequently-played music video in the early days of MTV.
