Rock legends Starship will touch down at Yardbirds
A MAJOR rock band who have played with the Rolling Stones will land in Grimsby.
Fans are sure to get stars in their eyes when they see Jefferson Starship perform at The Yardbirds Rock Club on Saturday, October 13.
The band, which is descended from Jefferson Airplane, was created by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Paul Kantner and David Freiberg.
They are set to perform their 2,000th concert this year since they first soared in 1974.

The band performed at Monterey and Woodstock, at Altamont with the Rolling Stones, and shared the bill countless times with Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin.
Their music helped define a generation focused on civil rights, environmental awareness and anti-war activism.
In the 1960s, the band was the first in San Francisco to sign a major record deal, paving the way for other legends to follow.
Jefferson Starship now features a luminary assemblage, fronted by Grammy-nominated lead vocalist Cathy Richardson, who starred on Broadway in Love, Janis, joined by Richardson, Freiberg and Kantner – who is the long-time lead guitarist for Slick Aguilar.
Also, the drummer, Donny Baldwin, who appeared on many of the band's classic recordings and keyboardist Chris Smith joined the band in 1998 after years with The Supremes. Last year proved another remarkable 12 months for the iconic band, for it included their first ever symphony engagement, broadcast across the USA on HDNET.
It also included a performance at Dragon-Con Atlanta; one of the world's largest sci-fi and comic book conventions, along with their usual plethora of concerts at top shelf casinos like Mohegan Sun in Uncasville.
And the pioneering artists marked 40 years since the release of their first album, Blows Against The Empire, – the first ever rock music recording nominated for literary science fiction's prestigious Hugo Award.
In Grimsby, the band will perform their iconic repertoire of hits spanning all eras of their existence, including Somebody To Love, Miracles and White Rabbit.
