New Wave band The Vapors, best known for their worldwide hit 'Turning Japanese' in 1980 will be performing a special show at Portmeirion on December 9th this year to coincide with the 50th anniversary of 'The Prisoner'.
The band reformed in 2016 after 35 years apart for their hugely successful ‘Waiting For the Weekend’ mini tour and now the band are back out in 2017 with a number of shows and festivals in the UK, including at Portmeirion's beautiful Hercules Hall.
The band will be performing two sets for the Portmeirion show including the whole of the now iconic album ‘New Clear Days’ plus songs from their second album ‘Magnets’ as well as a host of other live favourites. Support on the night comes from RTE Radio DJ Jacqui Carroll, and tickets are priced £29.50 limited to 150 standing available HERE.
The band have always been fans of 'The Prisoner', with one of their singles called 'Prisoners' inspired by the show.
