Last Great Dreamers have just been announced as special guests on the 1st UK tour in 35 years by Cherie Currie, the original voice of iconic 1970s L.A. all-girl rock n roll band The Runaways.
As her first-ever UK dates as a solo artist the former Runaways singer will be promoting Reverie, her first solo album since 1980.
Currie recalls: “In 1976 The Runaways came and we were called punk, but we didn’t even know what punk was until we landed in Europe and you guys taught us punk. I’d never seen the pins in the faces and the mohawk and all that…
I loved it – except when you guys tried to turn our car over and threw a knife when we were at the Apollo Theatre in Glasgow. But hey, that’s okay. It was still a learning experience. I can’t wait to play for you guys again.”
