BRITISH soul and R’n’B chart-toppers The Real Thing are coming to Stevenage next month for a concert.
The band behind 1976 number one hit You To Me Are Everything will be appearing at the Gordon Craig Theatre on Friday, October 5.
The soul classic will be just one of the songs performed by original vocalists Eddy Amoo, brother Chris Amoo and Dave Smith.
As well as topping the UK charts in June 1976, the Liverpool soul group also reached number two with follow-up single Can’t Get By Without You and hit the top 10 again in 1979 with Can You Feel The Force.
Seven years later, all three tracks were remixed and became massive hits again, thanks to their huge club following.
With their own fantastic five-piece band, The Real Thing’s live show includes all their top 10 hits, plus a medley of classics from the 70s, including tracks such as Celebration, Ladies Night and Aint No Stopping Us Now.
* Tickets for their Stevenage date cost £23.50 and £21 and are available from the box office on 01438 363200.
