Shadows star looks forward to Isle of Wight gig

Music legend Jet Harris has stated that he is looking forward to playing a hometown gig on the Isle of Wight.

The Shadows star - who now lives in Bembridge on the Isle of Wight - is playing at the Medina Theatre on June 25th 2010.

Tribute band The Flames are also on the bill, as well as John Leyton and Mike Berry, reports the Isle of Wight County Press.

Having spent the last year battling cancer by undergoing radiotherapy and chemotherapy, Harris said he is looking forward to the show as he feels he has been accepted on the island.

"Performing at Medina is fantastic and it is definitely one of my favourite theatres. The audience always gives me a great reception and it is a really friendly atmosphere," he said.

Throughout the 1960s, The Shadows enjoyed hit singles such as Apache, Foot Tapper, Kon-Tiki and Wonderful Land and are one of Britain's most successful bands ever.
