Among the most inventive and influential bands in the history of popular music, 10cc are one of the very few acts to have achieved commercial, critical and creative success in equal measure.
Testament to 10cc’s ongoing appeal, the band can count a generation straddling array of fellow artists, everyone from Chrissie Hynde to The Feeling’s Dan Gillespie and Axl Rose to Sophie Ellis Bextor, among their many millions of fans.
2012 marked the 40th anniversary of the release of 10cc’s first single Donna, which reached No.2 in the UK charts and kick-started a remarkable career that has seen the band sell in excess of 30 million albums around the world.
This concert sees former 10cc member Kevin Godley joining co-founder Graham Gouldman and the band on stage for the first time in many years. Godley has also teamed up with Gouldman and 10cc’s other original members to help produce a 5-disc CD box set that houses approximately 80 tracks from across the band’s hugely successful career together with a DVD containing rare live footage and promo videos.
“Where did the years ago? It is hard to believe that it has been 40 years since we were in the studio recording Donna – but I am delighted that the music of 10cc is alive and well in 2012,” says Gouldman.
