The legendary 10cc have announced major new dates for 2019 including London’s Royal Albert Hall, performing the hits which have singled them out as one of the most inventive and influential bands in the history of popular music.
Led by co-founder Graham Gouldman, the Art-Pop band are heralded in equal measure for their ability to craft ingenious songs that also resonated commercially, with eleven Top 10 Hits, and over 15 million albums sold in the UK alone.
This summer Gouldman joined the legendary Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band for a series of shows across Europe and North America.
The 2019 tour starts March 1stin Guildford, taking in Nottingham, Norwich, Southend, Bournemouth, Cardiff, Birmingham, Manchester, York, Gateshead, Glasgow, Liverpool, Bristol, Leicester and Eastbourne, culminating in the final show at London’s Royal Albert Hall on May 2nd.
10cc have achieved three No 1 singles – Rubber Bullets, Dreadlock Holiday and of course,I’m Not In Love, which features prominently in the soundtrack to the film Guardians of the Galaxy, which spawned a No 1 album in the United States.
The line-up features Gouldman (bass, guitar, vocals), Rick Fenn (lead guitar, bass, vocals), Paul Burgess (drums, percussion) – both of whom have been with the band since the mid-’70s - Keith Hayman (keyboards, guitars, bass, vocals) and Paul Canning (vocals, percussion, guitar, keyboards).
Since the most recent live version of the band has been established, 10cc have toured worldwide, including in Australia, Ireland Japan, New Zealand, across the UK and Europe, at London’s 65,000-capacity British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park, and selling out the Royal Albert Hall.
2019 is set to be another sensational year as the band take their inspirational live show back on the road, performing their timeless hits and more, and always with a surprise or two.
