AMSTERDAM frontman, Ian Prowse, will be performing in Neston later this year.

Ian, from Little Sutton, is fresh off the back of two UK tours as a very special guest with Elvis Costello, and his best two back-to-back albums since he began with Pele back in 1991.  

Pele signed to Polydor Records and promptly had a number one hit in South Africa as well as UK tours with The Pogues, Del Amitri and the first three singles on the BBC Radio 1 playlist.  

Ian, 60, then formed Amsterdam, who had John Peel weeping live on air every time he played the classic Does This Train Stop on Merseyside, which was then covered by Christy Moore and taken to number one in the Irish LP charts.  

Amsterdam signed to London indie Beat Crazy, their first single crashing into the top 40 at number 32.  

Often referred to as the 'Scouse Springsteen' Ian's live show has wowed audiences at Reading, Glastonbury, Beautiful Days & Kendal Calling.

In 2023 Ian has been on the road with The Wonder Stuff, The Blow Monkeys and Damien Dempsey.  

He will be playing in Neston with Nico his original Pele fiddle player.  

Ian counts Jean Jaques Burnel, the late Janice Long, Gary Crowley, Mick Jones and Chris Addison in the high-profile fan club of his song writing.

The event will take place at the Neston Royal British Legion on May 5 from 7.30pm.
