Duran coming up this Friday and other ticket news for Tropic At Ruislip
Dear Live Music Fan


So…the computer turned out to be a faulty graphics card and is now back up and running (mostly). Thankfully there are back-ups done during each day of most stuff so I managed to use those back ups to get through last Friday. I even managed to update the web site at 6 pm on Friday to show that tickets to The Floyd Effect WERE available on the door by virtue of late cancellations.


Moral here is where a gig is showing as sold out it is always worth checking the web site around 7 pm on the day of the gig, or if you do not live too far away, even coming down to see if walk-up tickets are available…they USUALLY are (famous last words).








This Friday we see the return of DURAN who bring us, not only the music of Duran Duran but especially for us at Tropic' also give us a number of songs by Spandau Ballet.


Duran were last in in January this year and brought the house down and I immediately thought they would give us a great show for the run up to Xmas and re-booked them.  What I can tell you now is they will NOT be back in 2019 as that is just about fully booked now, so do not miss your chance to catch them. As I type we look busy but by no means packed so there will be room to strut your stuff or maybe even park your backside if you prefer and get in early.


As it says on the web site: With almost two decades of experience on the tribute circuit DURAN have maintained their reputation as one of the most respected Duran Duran Tribute bands in the world. DURAN have played extensively across the UK for clients such as Butlins, Pontins, Warner Leisure Breaks, Chicago Rock Cafe, Grosvenor Casinos, Glastonbudget and have also featured on ITV and BBC Radio. It's attention to detail that makes DURAN stand out from the rest.

The sound of Duran Duran is faithfully captured using the most authentic equipment as used by the real band to recreate the sound with as much accuracy as possible. Delivering all the greatest hits as well as fan favourites DURAN deliver a stunning show of both Duran Duran and, especially for Ruislip, some Spandau Ballet numbers.

This gig remains SOLD OUT and if you have booked it is ESSENTIAL that you check your booking and make sure ALL of your party are still coming AND, if you have booked for a group, that somebody else has not also booked it "for you", as this seems to happen a lot with large groups, and as such plays havoc with my numbers.


I DO ENVISAGE LATE AVAILABILITY so it would be worth keeping an eye on the web site right up until the day of the gig.




This gig is starting to book well and an early reservation is advised as this date tends to go "mad" and fill up on Boxing Day.  I can tell you that COULD IT BE MAGIC will NOT be retuning in 2019 so do not miss this chance to get your fill of TAKE THAT and FRANKIE VALLI and the FOUR SEASONS.


Book now at http://www.tropicatruislip.co.uk/ebook/index.htm or your usual web links.






The refurbishment of the main hall is now more or less finished and consists of an entire new ceiling with new lights, new panelling around a lot of the walls and associated painting. As I type I am not sure when the new blinds for the windows will be installed.

I think they have the loos next on the list but suggest this will not happen until the football season finishes at the earliest.




I am delighted to welcome back the following bands in 2019, and bookings are now being taken for:-


21st June: Are Your Experienced - The UK's leading tribute to Jimi Hendrix


12th July: Sinnerboy - A stunning tribute to Irish legend Rory Gallagher


26th July: Like The Beatles - Our tribute to "The Fab Four" return, bring dance shoes

6th December: The Floyd Effect - Two words….BOOK EARLY


and a new band will finish off 2019 for us on…


27th December: The Cheekee Monkees - The UK's ONLY tribute to The Monkees


Book now at http://www.tropicatruislip.co.uk/ebook/index.htm for any of the shows above






Cracking show as ever with quite the most amusing start to a second set I think we have ever had!


So they rocked the place for the first set, came out to do their second one and on went the introduction music on a backing track and that stopped and …….nothing. Now it is at this point that I (seated right at the back and on the lights) look to Phil on the sound and say something along the lines of "Now tell me old chap do we have a technical hitch here" when, after a hiatus of what felt like a minute but was probably nearer 20 seconds Pod (Geddy Lee) apologises over the microphone for not coming in after the track finished as he should have done saying he was struck down by an attack of cramp in his hand!


Anyway….once they got started they rocked the place for the second set as well.


As I type there is no date in the diary for a return but once I get my 2020 hat on I am sure we can sort something out.




The usual polished show which just blows me away me more each year. One thing that does amaze me it the amount of kit they bring in to such a small hall. I may have already mentioned that the mixing desk alone was £36,000, I happened to look at the amplifier racks which sit to the side of the stage on Friday, four power amps each costing £8,000 I gather. This of course excludes any pre-amps and speakers…oh and the light show! The numbers are a bit mind boggling.


The Floyd Effect are back on 6th December 2019 and it is 5% sold already - book early! http://www.tropicatruislip.co.uk/ebook/index.htm


See you soon
