Chester to Hear Classic ‘80s Liverpool Band

Renowned Liverpool band A Flock of Seagulls will soon play live in Chester.

The band, which rose to fame in the 1980s, will perform a single night show at The Live Rooms towards the end of next month, allowing fans in the city and beyond to experience their unique sound.

The band was formed by former hairdresser Mike Score and Ali, his brother. While Score was lead vocalist, guitarist and keyboardist, his sibling played drums while a friend of theirs, Frank Maudsley, was on bass.

The name “A Flock of Seagulls” originated from a line in The Stranglers song “Toiler on the Sea” from their Black and White Album. To complete the line-up, Willie Woo joined playing guitar and the band started writing songs. When Woo left and was replaced by Paul Reynolds, the group began their career in earnest, playing clubs and securing a record contract.

Today, Score is the only original member of A Flock of Seagulls still in the band, but they continue to perform classic tracks from all albums. Those attending the show, will be able to hear live renditions of well-known hits from the group’s songbook, which may include “Space Age Love Song”, “It’s Not Me Talking”, “Wishing (If I Had a Photograph of You)”, “Modern Love is Automatic”, “I Ran” and “Telecommunication”.

A Flock of Seagulls will perform at The Live Rooms on Saturday, September 30. The popular Chester events venue can be found at 1 Station Road and the show will start at 7 pm and run until 9 pm. The concert is a “standing only” event.
