Nick Lowe's Quality Holiday Revue featuring Los Straitjackets Tickets

Adelphi Theatre
West End

Nick Lowe’s Quality Holiday Revue arrives in time to sprinkle some much needed Holiday Cheer. Starring Nick Lowe & Los Straitjackets, the show will feature a few brand-new Christmas Classics from 2013’s “Quality Street” as well as careful selections from his catalogue of hits and near-misses. Nick will appear solo and backed by the Straitjackets who will bring along some Yuletide treats of their own.

Nick Lowe has made his mark as a producer (Elvis Costello-Graham Parker-Pretenders-The Damned), songwriter of at least three songs you know by heart, short-lived career as a pop star, and a lengthy term as a musicians’ musician. But in his current ‘second act’ as a silver-haired, tender-hearted but sharp-tongued singer-songwriter, he has no equal. Starting with 1995′s ‘The Impossible Bird’ through to 2011′s ‘The Old Magic,’ Nick has turned out a fantastic string of albums, each one devised in his West London home, and recorded with a core of musicians who possess the same veteran savvy. Lowe brings wit and understated excellence to every performance, leading Ben Ratliff of the New York Times to describe his live show as “elegant and nearly devastating

Los Straitjackets are the leading practitioners of the lost art of the guitar instrumental. Using the music of Ventures, The Shadows, Link Wray and Dick Dale as a jumping off point, the band has taken their unique, high-energy brand of original rock & roll around the world. Clad in their trademark Lucha Libre Mexican wrestling masks, the “Jackets” have delivered their trademark guitar licks to 16 albums, thousands of concerts and dozens of films and TV shows. Viva Los Straitjackets!
