Tony Christie plays surprise gig at London Barfly

The King Of Steel City joins new band onstage at tiny venue

Sheffield band Laruso ended their set at Camden Barfly last night (July 27) with a surprise duet with crooner Tony Christie.

The “King Of Steel City”, who is the uncle of Laruso guitarist Carl Brown, showed up in a black suit before lending his vocals to ‘Heresy’ in front of the amazed audience.

The song features on the band’s second album ‘A Classic Case of Cause and Effect’, which was released in May.

After singing the ‘Heresy’‘s chorus, Christie stood arm in arm with Brown before leaving the stage to mass applause.

The band’s nine-song set featured material from their new album, including current single ‘Plain Paper Napkins’. Speaking from the stage, Laruso singer Liv Puente declared the gig “the best yet”.

Laruso were supported by Plastic Toys and Baddies.

‘End Of Level Boss’
‘Plain Paper Napkins’
