Calling all Music Fans – Formerly of Bucks Fizz: Cheryl, Mike & Jay Plus Bobby McVay appear at Stockport Plaza on Thursday, July 20.
Early in 1981, four complete strangers sat in the drawing room of a house in Fulham and were told: “You are now Bucks Fizz.”
In the eight weeks between that first meeting and appearing on A Song for Europe in 1981, Bucks Fizz were hurled into a melee of rehearsing, recording, styling, interviews and photography.
All that hard work and effort was to pay dividends – they went on to win the Song For Europe and Eurovision Song Contest 1981 and became household names around the world.
With over 20 singles released over the next few years including three number ones – My Camera Never Lies, Land Of Make Believe and, of course, Making Your Mind Up, they sold more then of 15 million records, spending 219 weeks in the UK charts.
Plaza manager Ted Doan says: “This is going to be a great night and the band always look forward to their concerts in the north west, so get your mind made up and book your tickets today!”
