A BEWDLEY band will be performing their pop rock anthems straight from the 80s as they return to electrify the Wyre Forest crowd.

Rouen will be taking to the stage at this year's Kidderminster Fringe Festival at the Boars Head/Tap House on August 18 & 19 to delight music fans.

After forming in 1984, the band were regularly played Radio 1 airplay, appeared on national TV, and played some high profile shows throughout the country.

The group broke up in 1990 following management and publishing issues, but reformed in 2011 to pay tribute to local music promoter, historian & author John Combe at the Kidderminster Rocks concert at the town hall.

Now as a three-piece group, Rouen plan to release new music in early 2019 and have more gigs lined up.

The band have also involved themselves in the 'Musicians Against Homelessness' charity event organised by Serious Studios in Stourport on Severn and BBC Hereford & Worcester.

They are one of twelve artists who will record a cover song by one of the other participating bands, which will raise funds for the homeless charity.

There will also be a special live gig to showcase all the acts, where the bands will be performing their original songs and their cover versions.
