Billy Bremner and Steve Gibbons offer an impressive tribute to Rockpile and the British pub rock!

Rockpile was one of the top names of British pub rock in the 70’s and 80’s. You can now experience a unique tribute performance at Tampere Hall when the guitarist-singer Billy Bremner steps on the stage with his current band, Rockfiles, to deliver some of his original line-up’s best hits, such as I Knew The Bride, I Hear You Knockin´, Loud Music In Cars, Down Down Down, and Three Time Looser.

The original Rockpile line-up also included Dave Edmunds, Nick Lowe, and Terry Williams, besides Bremner himself. The “only super band” of British pub rock came to delight the audiences in Ruisrock in 1980.

At their Tampere Hall tribute concert, the band will gain some extra oomph when they will be joined by Birmingham’s big name Steve Gibbons, a much loved singer songwriter with an over 50-year career.

After this evening, you will know what real rock’n’roll feels like!
