For the second time this year, the Camden Opera House will be filled with the sounds of 1960s-area British rock. On Monday, Oct. 10, at 7 p.m., Denny Laine, original member of Moody Blues and Wings, and Chad and Jeremy will perform.

Laine will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Wings Over America tour by performing the album "Band on the Run.” By far the most successful album involving any of the Beatles following their breakup, "Band on the Run" was created by Paul McCartney, Laine and Linda McCartney. With Paul McCartney on vocals, piano, drums, guitar, bass and keys; Laine contributing vocals, keys, acoustic, electric and bass guitars; and Linda McCartney on keys and vocals, “Band On the Run” transcended the era to become an album whose deep cuts are better remembered, and played more often on classic rock radio, than many hits of the era. Within a year of its release, “Band On the Run" had sold more than six million copies worldwide and spawned three U.S. Top Ten hits — "Helen Wheels," "Jet" and the title track. The album was in the Top 30 of the Billboard 200 as recently as 2010, when a remastered version was released.

Other Wings hits such as "Live and Let Die" and "Time to Hide," as well as Laine's legendary lead vocal on the Moody Blues classic "Go Now," will round out the set.

Popular English singing folk rock duo Chad (Stuart) and Jeremy (Clyde) were a large part of the so-called British Invasion, which brought an influx of British rock and pop musicians to the American music scene, selling out houses and producing screaming fans.

Chad and Jeremy were "discovered" by famed movie composer John Barry and recorded a string of hits including “Yesterday's Gone,” “Summer Song,” “Willow Weep for Me,” “If I Loved You,” “Before and After” and “Distant Shores.” As former drama students, they were snapped up by Hollywood, appearing as themselves on “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” “The Patty Duke Show,” “Laredo” and, yes, “Batman.” They hosted “Hullabaloo” and appeared on all the great variety shows.

Life caused the duo to part ways for a bit, but in the 1980s they teamed up again, with another album and starring roles in the British version of the Broadway hit “Pump Boys & Dinettes.” Then came the opportunity to tour the U.S. with British Invasion II, which garnered great reviews. Chad and Jeremy are still touring, coming to the Midcoast with Laine.

General admission tickets are $18 in advance and will be $20 at the door. Tickets are available at; by calling 536-5850; between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. weekdays at the Camden Town Office; or an hour before show time at the opera house.
