By Nick Britten And John Munro

Fans of the Bay City Rollers are to hold a huge three-day festival to honour their heroes. The convention, in Las Vegas, will mark the near 30-year career of the tartan teenybop band. It is expected to attract thousands of people from all over the world. It could even see the Rollers' most famous line-up playing together for the first time in 20 years. The split between ex-frontman Les McKeown and the rest of the band has now been healed. Now the band hope to make it to the "Absolute Rollerfest" on August 22-24. Guitarist Stuart "Woody" Wood said yesterday: "It's a great event and hopefully we can get there. It shows we still have a good following, despite what the music industry thinks." Fans will get together to swap mementoes and tales from years of following the Rollers. The Bay City Rollers had massive worldwide hits in the '70s including Bye Bye Baby, Shang-A-Lang and Summer love Sensation.
