Question: what do Axl Rose of Guns N’Roses, The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne, TV/radio presenter Chris Evans, The Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde, Huey Morgan of Fun Lovin’ Criminals, The Feeling’s Dan Gillespie, Sophie Ellis Bextor and at least 30 million other people around the world have in common?
Answer: they are all 10cc fans.
One of the most successful groups in the 70’s are performing at the Bowl, Town Gardens, Swindon on Saturday 16 July as part of their nationwide tour. It is the legendry 10cc and they have a new album release ‘The Greatest Hits and More’.
10cc have had hit after hit with over 10 top ten entries including three at the number ones. This one night event is certainly not to be missed and will be full of outstanding live music from the band and also some great support acts.
Their biggest ever hit was ‘I’m Not In Love’ which reached number 1 in the UK. 10cc ruled the pop world at a time in the seventies when the charts were dominated by some of the most creative and colourful pop artistes in pop history.
The band initially consisted of four musicians Graham Gouldman, Eric Stewart, Kevin Godley and Lol Crème. The band had already written and recorded together for three years before assuming the ‘10cc’ name in 1972. Before forming the band all four members were well known musicians.
10cc now consists of 5 members with one of them being an original member. They are Graham Gouldman, Rick Fenn, Paul Burgess, Mick Wilson and Mike Stevens. Not all of them may be originals but they certainly are fantastic performers and create the legendry music from 10cc.
The evening will include such hits by 10cc: Rubber Bullets, I’m Not In Love, Dreadlock Holiday, Donna, Art For Art’s Sake, Good Morning Judge, The Things We Do For Love, I’m Mandy Fly Me, Life Is A Minestrone, The Dean And I & The Wall Street Shuffle.
10cc have already sold out in some of their tour venues so don’t miss out on this fantastic concert.
