Conkers in Moira has two tribute acts playing live this weekend.

On Friday, there is a Muse/Killers tribute to two of the best rock bands around.

Simulation Muse and The Runaway Killers began life as ProtoStereo in 2014.

Regarded amongst many venues as one of the highest quality cover bands on the live entertainment circuit, they held their audiences with their renditions of some of the biggest modern rock hits of the last 20 years. An uncanny likeness to a certain two bands was soon apparent and in 2016 they began a double tribute to Muse and The Killers, playing festivals and theatres.

This show is performed in the covered amphitheatre, the Arena at Waterside, with Licensed Bar and Burger Shack.

On Saturday, Conkers hosts a Tom Jones tribute.

With 20 years of performance experience within the music business, Andy Wood has become renowned for his vocal ability and showmanship, matched equally by his professionalism.

After an appearance in 1993 on the hit TV series "Stars in Their Eyes", Andy became involved in the newly emerging tribute scene and throughout the last 15 years has established himself as one of the leading performers in the U.K.
