Neston Royal British Legion

Merseyside hero Ian Prowse is fresh off the back of 2 UK tours as very special guest with Elvis Costello, a phenomenal on line FB show during the pandemic (40 episodes!) and his best 2 back to back albums since he began with Pele back in 1991. Pele signed to Polydor Records and promptly had a Number 1 hit in South Africa as well as UK tours with The Pogues, Del Amitri and the first 3 singles on the BBC Radio 1 playlist. Ian then formed Amsterdam who had John Peel weeping live on air every time he played the classic Does This Train Stop On Merseyside, which was then covered by legend Christy Moore and taken to Number 1 in the Irish LP charts. Amsterdam signed to London indie Beat Crazy, their first single crashing into the top 40 at no.32. Often referred to as the Scouse Springsteen Ian’s incendiary live show has wowed them at Reading, Glastonbury, Beautiful Days & Kendal Calling, in 2023 Ian has been on the road with The Wonder Stuff, The Blow Monkeys & Damien Dempsey. He is very excited to be playing in Neston with Nico his original Pele fiddle player. Ian counts Jean Jaques Burnel, the late Janice Long, Gary Crowley, Mick Jones and Chris Addison in the high-profile fan club of his songwriting.
