GET ready to celebrate the sounds of the 70s as the popular BBC Radio 2 programme comes to Weymouth Pavilion.

The brand new show will be hosted by legendary DJ Johnnie Walker, who will share anecdotes and memories from the decade. He will be joined by a live band and a selection of talented singers, who will perform an array of classic hits from the era.

Johnnie said: "It’s a real treat for me to be taking my Sounds of the 70s radio show on the road. It’s going to be a great celebration and sing-song of one of the greatest decades in music – we’ll talk about the artists who made it so special and will have an incredible band performing all those classic hits."

Johnnie has hosted Sounds of the 70s every Sunday afternoon from 3pm to 5pm since 2009. The show is similar to that of his predecessor Steve Harley, but the format differs slightly and Johnnie often interviews guest artistes.

His radio career began in 1966 on the offshore radio station, Swinging Radio England. He moved to the BBC in 1969 and has since hosted shows on Radio 1, Radio 2, Radio London and Radio 5.

The 2020 tour, Sounds of the 70s, is set to visit more than 20 venues across the country, and comes to Weymouth Pavilion on Thursday, April 2. Tickets range from £33 to £43 and can purchased by visiting the pavilion website or contacting the box office.
