Status Quo frontman Francis Rossi leads the July line-up at the New Theatre Royal, Lincoln
Despite the ongoing coronavirus restrictions, the shows must go on at the New Theatre Royal, Lincoln. And there is a packed programme of productions coming up.
Stage and screen actor John Lyons, who starred in A Touch of Frost, returns to the New Theatre Royal Lincoln in a new thriller, Father Brown — The Murderer in the Mirror.
There are socially-distanced shows on July 12 and 13.
In the new thriller by John Goodrum, based on the classic mysteries by G. K. Chesterton, a famous actor is found dead just before the opening of his latest West End production and Father Brown — invited to watch the dress rehearsal — sees at once in the shattered dressing room mirror that all is not as it seems.
John Lyons, hugely familiar to audiences from his 17 years as David Johnson’s sidekick, DS George Toolan, in A Touch of Frost.
Status Quo frontman Francis Rossi is heading back to the New Theatre Royal Lincoln on Tuesday, July 20, to share extraordinary secrets from more than 50 years in rock ‘n’ roll.
He said,: “We loved being on the road last time and we had such a good time at Lincoln that we wanted to return.
“The place is beautiful and one of the things I like is that the venue has worked so hard to give people great entertainment locally.
“Hopefully, we’ll see lots of friends and fans who made the last show — as well as new ones who are looking to celebrate the end of lockdown with a great night out.”
Also returning to the venue on July 23 is One Night In Dublin, providing a night of high-energy Irish music and more than a little bit of Irish craic with The Wild Murphys.
The Illegal Eagles are at the theatre on July 24 with The Eagles back catalogue, including Hotel California, Desperado, and Take It Easy.
And Queen tribute band Mercury, led by Newark’s Joseph Lee Jackson will rock the venue on July 30 with the band’s greatest hits.
