Islington Academy's Runaway 22/2/17


Don't miss the chance to see Lita Ford (Vid Of The Day) for a UK exclusive headline show. Hailed as the queen of rock, Lita was the lead guitarist for The Runaways in the 1970's, before embarking on a solo career in the 80's. Lita has lined up a headline concert at London’s Islington Academy on Sunday 12th March, two days after headlining the HRH/AOR Festival in Wales. A British born rocker who grew up on the streets of L.A., Ford was a founding member of the Runaways, one of the first girl groups who unexpectedly broke down barriers in the Punk era as well as the male-dominated world of Rock music, causing a stir with their six rebellious releases. Following the demise of the Runaways, Lita concentrated on her own career, subsequently creating such memorable hits as ‘Close Your Eyes Forever’, ‘What Do You Know About Love’, ‘Shot Of Poison’, ‘Larger Than Life’ and ‘Kiss Me Deadly’.
