Kinks' stage reunion: always a Sunny Afternoon
27th October 2014

The Kinks were notorious for their in-fighting and bad blood, so it's unlikely they will have an official reunion anytime in the foreeable future. However, West End musical 'Sunny Afternoon' tells their story at the Harold Pinter theatre. 

The band were formed in Muswell Hill, North London and the city influenced many of their biggest hits, most famously Waterloo Sunset. 

Singer, songwriter and guitarist Ray Davies has been heavily involved in the production, writing up the original story of the band. The cast discuss the show, how it tells the tempestuous story of the group in 'vivid colour' and why it's time the Kinks' were thought of in the same league as the Rolling Stones and the Beatles.
