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 the group’s two original 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.
The band continue to tour up and down the country selling out venues and regularly perform at 70’s & 80’s festivals alongside such artists as Rick Astley, Boy George, Belinda Carlisle, Kool and the Gang and Chic.
