20th Century Boy, the smash-hit musical based on the life of rock legend Marc Bolan comes to Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre for the Arts on 30 March to mark the 40th anniversary of the iconic star’s untimely death.
Featuring some of the greatest rock songs ever written, 20th Century Boy tells the life story of the legendary Bolan and his band T. Rex. The show exposes some of the myths and takes the audience on a tearful yet feel-good journey through Marc’s fascinating life, cut short by a cruel twist of fate.
At his peak, Bolan was arguably the biggest rock star the UK had ever seen. Rocker, poet, electric warrior, king of glam and godfather of punk – Marc Bolan became a superstar and the press dubbed him “Bigger than the Beatles”. Before his tragic death in 1977, a few days short of his 30thbirthday, Bolan lived life at breakneck speed, creating a series of iconic images, a string of number one hits and an army of obsessive fans.
Packed with all of T. Rex’s 70s hits including Ride a White Swan, Metal Guru, Get It On, I Love to Boogies, Children of the Revolution and, of course, 20th Century Boy, this is a glorious celebration of glam rock at its colourful best.
