Pele to Release 25th Anniversary Edition of “Fireworks”

The “silver” version if you will.  2017 will be 25 years since Ian Prowse’s first ever album with his Liverpool based band Pele, one of the pioneers of the “folk rock” genre of the time, a well received debut album which gained Prowse’s songwriting its first ever set of fans when the band toured the UK constantly in the early 90’s. Fireworks was released on Polydor/M&G and produced four singles, three of which were playlisted on BBC Radio.  To celebrate the anniversary the album will be re-issued & re-mastered with a souvenir booklet and free extras CD. 

Ian and his 6 piece band will also recreate the madness of those early shows by playing the album in full on a UK tour next Spring to coincide with the actual anniversary. Fireworks is only 38 minutes long so all the best of the rest of Ian’s career will feature in this very special show.
