VIDEO - Breakdown blues for tribute ‘brothers’

Have your say

The Blues Brothers were on a “mission from God” to get to Harrogate in time for the switching on of the town’s Christmas lights - arriving under police escort and being towed by a tractor.

The tribute act, set to star in Jake and Elwood’s Christmas party at Harrogate’s Royal Hall, had been invited to turn on the town’s lights last Thursday night.

But they nearly didn’t make it in time, after their Bluesmobile broke down. It was only the intervention of a farmer with a tractor - and a police escort to see them on their way - that got them to the stage on time.
