Celebrating the infectious music of Ian Dury and the Blockheads, Reasons To Be Cheerful is a punk rock musical and gritty coming of age tale, which always leaves audiences shouting for more.
Featuring Ian Dury and the Blockheads' greatest hits including Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll, Sweet Gene Vincent, Spasticus Autisticus and Hit Me with your Rhythm Stick.
It's 1979: Labour loses to the Tories, strikes rock the nation and Ian Dury and the Blockheads' Reasons to be Cheerful (Part 3) climbs the charts.
As the ultimate fans, Vinnie and his mates would do anything to see Dury at the Hammersmith Odeon, only the gig is sold out.
But life has a habit of throwing strange things at you, and one night of frustration becomes something else entirely ...
Lets 'Ave it!
Following nationwide tours, concert versions across the world and a performance at the London 2012 Paralympic Games Opening Ceremony, Reasons To Be Cheerful is back on the road one last time!
