The Red Hot Chilli Pipers
Whitley Bay Playhouse
Thursday 18th May 2017
There has never been anything quite like The Red Hot Chilli Pipers, from a cameo appearance at T in the Park in 2004 with The Darkness to opening the main stage in their own right in 2014. The past twelve years has seen the Red Hot Chilli Pipers become the most famous bagpipe band on the planet...ever! Bagpipes with attitude, drums with a Scottish accent and a show that carries its own health warning.
The band's achievements have reached incredible heights with their groundbreaking fusion of traditional Scottish music and Rock/Pop Anthems which they proudly call “Bagrock”. The Red Hot Chilli Pipers are a genuinely unique experience.
The Chillis have never been more in demand for their infectious style of feel good music which appeals right across the age range to people all over the world. They have collected together an impressive group of musicians from Scotland and further afield, many holding World Championship titles and all seriously good players with impressive credentials and qualifications.
The band recently launched their eighth and eagerly anticipated new album - `Octane` - in May 2016. This album follows on the back of the hugely successful release of the live DVD and CD entitled `Live at the Lake` in 2014. In an explosive evening of entertainment captured on this live DVD and CD, The Red Hot Chilli Pipers recorded their most adventurous project to date, bringing 16 musicians and dancers across the Atlantic to perform at Milwaukee Irish Fest, the US spiritual home of the band. They captured the unique and explosive power of the Chilli Pipers in one unforgettable evening by the shores of Lake Michigan. Tracks include - Insomnia, Gimme All Your Lovin', Thunderstruck, Everybody Dance Now, Amazing Grace, Fix You, Chasing Cars, Wake Me Up, Don’t Stop Believin and We Will Rock You.
