Following a hugely successful nine-date major venue tour earlier in the year, which included the band’s first ever performance at the Royal Albert Hall, legendary 70s pop band, 10cc, are pleased to announce a 28-date UK concert tour.

Having sold more than 15 million albums in the UK and 30 million worldwide, 10cc are celebrating an incredible 40 years in the music business.

As founding member Graham Gouldman says: “It’s hard to believe it’s 40 years since 10cc was born in Strawberry Studios in Stockport. I’m immensely proud of all we have achieved. As long as the fans want to hear the songs played live I’ll be happy to oblige.”

Noted for their studio polish, virtuoso musicianship, impeccable vocals and clever lyrics their style was soon dubbed ‘art pop’,

10cc earned critical respect and public acclaim for such singles as Donna, Rubber Bullets, The Dean and I and Wall Street Shuffle, which showcased the band members’ talents as musicians, singers, songwriters and masters of the studio.

With 11 Top 10 UK singles to their name - including No 1 hits I’m Not In Love and Dreadlock Holiday.

The live line-up, together now for 10 years, features Graham Gouldman (vocals, bass, guitar), Rick Fenn (lead guitar, vocals), Paul Burgess (drums, vocals), Mick Wilson (percussion, guitar, vocals) and Mike Stevens (keyboards, guitar, sax, vocals). Rick and Paul have both worked with 10cc since the mid-‘70s line-up.

“The band, as it stands now is absolutely fantastic. And of course our main strength and what we’re selling is the songs, nothing else,” says Gouldman, “This is as near as you’re ever going to get to hearing the perfect 10cc. Hit after hit after hit. It’s relentless. We show no mercy.”

The band will be appearing at the Princess Theatre, Torquay, on Tuesday, November 13, Tickets are available from 08448 713023.
