BRITISH r’n’b veterans Dr. Feelgood will be performing at Buxton Opera House on Thursday, February 7, in a gig starting at 7.30pm.

Formed on Canvey Island in Essex in the early 1970s, Dr. Feelgood remain one of the most popular and exciting live rhythm and blues acts in the world.

The raw and uncompromising style of their performance resulted in the album Stupidity that immediately went to the number one position in the UK charts.

Dr. Feelgood have also enjoyed global success with a string of hit singles including Roxette, Back in the Night, Milk and Alcohol, Down at the Doctors, She Does it Right, Going Back Home and See You Later Alligator. The current line-up features the rhythm section of Kevin Morris on drums and Phil Mitchell on bass. Both have been 29 years in the band while guitarist Steve Walwyn has notched up 23 years with Dr. Feelgood.

Vocalist Robert Kane (formerly of the Animals) is the most recent addition, joining in 1999 after the death of original member Lee Brilleaux.

The band continues to tour extensively throughout the world.

Tickets for the Buxton show are £15.50-£17.50, available from the box office on 0845 127 2190.
