Multi-million selling soul band The Real Thing are ready to give their much loved disco inspired hits a new lease of life with an extensive UK tour.
Featuring vocalists Chris Amoo and Dave Smith, along with their 5-piece band, the trio deliver a funky ‘in your face’ show with a strong ‘retro flavour’ with the band’s classic songs mixed with contemporary grooves. Celebrating the 40th anniversary of their debut hit single You to Me Are Everything, the Liverpool based trio boast three million selling hit singles including, Can’t Get by Without You, Whenever You Want My Love and Can You Feel the Force, making them the UK’s best-selling black group of the late 70s.
Hear all the hits plus some fantastic covers such as Ladies Night, Celebration, Good Times & Ain’t no stopping us now in an action packed show.
UPDATE: Chris and Dave are devastated by the loss of their brother and friend Eddy. They have been overwhelmed by the love and support of fans, colleagues, and the people of Liverpool.
Chris and Dave have made the decision to continue The Real Thing’s 2018 tour. They will continue as a two-piece, with their live band, from 7 April and through 2018.
Chris says “The fans’ outpouring of support makes us realise how much love there is out there for The Real Thing, and we’re doing this for them, and for Eddy, who was the greatest showman. It would have been Eddy’s wish for us to carry on and still feel the force.”
