MUCH-LOVED Cockney rocker Chas Hodges - lead singer and pianist with Chas & Dave - brings his band to the Queen's Theatre, Hornchurch, on Sunday for an evening of Rock, Rabbit and Roll.

Former partner Dave has retired from touring since his wife died, but Chas promises all the old favourites, including Rabbit, Ain't No Pleasing You, Gertcha, Sideboard Song, Margate, London Girls and Snooker Loopy.

Along with drummer Micky Burt and bassist Darren Juniper, Chas will also be performing tracks from his new solo album and reminiscing about the old days touring with Dave with a variety of special songs and stories.

In the first half of the show, he will perform a tribute to rock 'n' roll legend Jerry Lee Lewis, who he worked with in the 1960s.

Winning over the nation's hearts with their cheery Cockney vocals and inimitable brand of British rock 'n' roll, Chas & Dave performed together for more than 30 years, clocking up nine hugely popular albums and eight top 40 singles.

The Queen's concert starts at 7.30pm. Tickets cost �19 and �17.50 for concessions. To book, call the box office on 01708 443333 or go to www.queens-theatre.co.uk.
