Boot , who have been referred to by Radio One regular Fearne Cotton as “the nearest thing I have heard to the lords of rock” will be bringing such classics as Going To California, Whole Lotta Love and Stairway To Heaven at the Corn Exchange, in Newbury, on Saturday, July 20.

The full electric band have been playing for more than 10 years and have toured all over the country as well as in Portugal and Russia.
