TICKETS go on sale this Friday for 10cc at Rhyl Pavilion Theatre this October.
The legendary 10cc will be getting you moving at Rhyl Pavilion this October celebrating the 40th anniversary of Sheet Music.
Art-pop pioneers will bring their defining album Sheet Music to Rhyl with a special video contribution by band co-founder Kevin Godley.
Led by 10cc co-founder Graham Gouldman, the band will perform two sets at each concert, the first half of the evening comprising Sheet Music its entirety, with a pause for the symbolic turning of the vinyl album.
Released in 1974, Sheet Music reached No 9 in the UK album charts and entered the Top 100 in the US. It remains a masterclass in the composition of popular music and typifies the eclecticism and remarkable invention that characterised the band’s earlier work, said to have influenced Freddie Mercury and Queen.
The second part of the concert features a comprehensive spread of the band’s eleven Top 10 hits and more, including their three No 1s - I’m Not In Love, Dreadlock Holiday and Rubber Bullets.
The current live band, which has been together for more than 10 years, features Gouldman on vocals, bass and guitar; Rick Fenn (lead guitar, vocals), Paul Burgess (drums, percussion), Mick Wilson (vocals, guitar, percussion) and Mike Stevens (keyboards, guitar, sax, vocals). Rick and Paul have both worked with 10cc since the mid-‘70s line-up.
Purveyors of some of the greatest pop records of the 20th century, 10cc has sold more than 15 million albums in the UK and 30 million worldwide. Such is the enduring nature of their music that movie-makers can’t resist including the band in soundtracks, with I’m Not In Love featuring in Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason and 2014 blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy, while Dreadlock Holiday was used in The Social Network (2010), about the founding of Facebook
Meanwhile, Graham Gouldman has been receiving particular recognition in the US for his songwriting work with 10cc and the hits he wrote for artistes such as The Hollies (Bus Stop), The Yardbirds (For Your Love) and Herman’s Hermits (No Milk Today). He has been inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame – an arm of America’s National Academy of Music, and awarded Icon status by Broadcast Music Incorporated.
The band will be at Rhyl Pavilion on October 20. Tickets go on sale this Friday, February 5 at 10am from the Box Office on 0174533000 or in person and are priced at £33.50. No concessions. Tickets will be available online also at www.rhylpavilion.co.uk.
