“Rollermania” is set to return as the Bay City Rollers announce a comeback.
Formed at the end of the 1960s, the then Scots boyband enjoyed huge success both in the UK and abroad with their distinctive tartan outfits and upbeat pop tunes like Bye Bye Baby and Shang-a-Lang.
They had a massive teen following, sold more than 100 million records and have been described as the “One Direction of their day”.
Of the original line-up, singer Les McKeown, Alan Longmuir and Stuart Wood are set to reform and have promised “a very special Christmas present to all the fans that have kept the faith with the band over the years”.
They rose to fame producing numerous top 10 hits, sell-outs tours and their own TV show before splitting in 1978, with bitter battles over money between band members and managers dragging on for decades.
