About the Bay City Rollers

The Bay City Rollers originated from Edinburgh and tasted Top 10 success with their first single Keep On Dancing in 1971 but, when further chart success eluded them, they underwent a series of personnel changes. Eric Faulkner joined brothers Alan and Derek Longmuir in 1972 and the classic Bay City Rollers line up was completed by Les McKeown and Stuart ‘Woody’ Wood when they arrived as the band began their incredible rise to fame in 1974.

At the height of ‘Rollermania’ the Bay City Rollers were heralded as the biggest group since The Beatles. Thousands of screaming fans followed their every move, dressed in the ‘tartan army’ uniform of calf-length tartan trousers with striped socks and a tartan scarf. They sold an estimated 120 million records worldwide and had their own British television show Shang-a-Lang.

Over a three-year period the Rollers scored 10 UK Top 10 hits, including Bye Bye Baby, which stayed at Number 1 for six weeks, and a second consecutive chart topper in 1975 with Give A Little Love.  The following year Saturday Night gave them a US Number 1.

Les McKeown continues to tour with Les McKeown’s Bay City Rollers and is currently on a 42-date UK tour. For more information and tickets please visit https://lesmckeown.com/concert-dates-2019
