There is sure to be something on that will take your interest. The Carpenters tribute band or the much-respected ABBA tribute band ARRIVAL for example. Kevin Mcloud of Grand Designs fame would approve which is good because he comes from Dunstable and if Badly Drawn Boy or Faye Tozer from Steps ever want to perform this would also be a homecoming for them. Unlikely they would be on the same bill though.
