Popular covers band Ostinato are playing their final gig at The Horn in St Albans tomorrow night before going their separate ways.
The free gig by the St Albans band will feature hits from the 80s to the present day and joining the band for the extended set will be former drummer Gareth Tyler.
On Saturday, there is a chance to see Who’s Next, a tribute to recent Glastonbury headliners The Who. They recreate the period in the early 1970s when The Who played Live at Leeds, the Isle of Wight Festival, Tanglewood and the Fillmore shows.
Who’s Next play Pete Townshend’s classic pop songs such as I Can’t Explain and Substitute, the psychedelic imagery of Pinball Wizard and rock anthems like My Generation and Won’t Get Fooled Again.
The tribute band has been touring the UK and Europe since 2003.
