The Springsteen Sessions to Play Mareel, with Support from No Sweat

Shetland Arts is pleased to reveal that The Springsteen Sessions will play at Mareel, with support from No Sweat, on Saturday 7 December.


After their headline festival appearances this summer on the Grass Roots Stage at Belladrum and at Fringe By The Sea, The Springsteen Sessions are undertaking an extensive 20-date tour of Scotland and the north of England - from Lerwick to Berwick.


For three years now, this talented group of Scottish musicians has thrilled audiences across the country with their driving and dynamic versions of the very best of The Boss & The E Street Band - from the early albums like Greetings from Asbury Park right through to Wrecking Ball.


All the classics and anthems are delivered with massive attention to detail, ensuring that the authentic sound of Bruce & The E Street Band is delivered. Audiences will be captivated by the drive and energy of The Springsteen Sessions and will go away exhausted and enthralled by the gripping and energetic two hour show.


No Sweat are well known locally as one of the longest serving rock n roll bands in Shetland. Hailing from Yell, they formed in 1980 and have only had one major line-up change in their time as a band, going from strength to strength over the years.


Shetland Arts' Marketing Officer, Lisa Ward, said: "The Springsteen Sessions are a fantastic tribute to Bruce & The E Street Band and with loads of fans of The Boss in Shetland, plus loads of die-hard No Sweat fans, we're expecting this will be a very popular event!"


Ticketing details will be released in the coming weeks.
