November will see the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Gliderdrome’s Starlight Room and it was announced this week that this will be celebrated by the booking of the country’s top touring rock ‘n’ roll show That’ll Be The Day, who last appeared in Boston about nine years ago.

The show will be held on Friday October 31, about a fortnight before the actual date of the Gliderdrome’s anniversary.

It has been made possible by the co-operation of the band’s agents who have managed to find a date for the gig at short notice – and a little ‘string pulling’.

More details of anniversary celebrations are set to be announced in the coming months.
