Chris Norman – May 31st, 2019

On Friday, May 31, Chris Norman will be appearing on stage at Stockport Plaza.

Famed for fronting huge 70s hit band Smokie, Norman has gone on to carve out a successful solo career since leaving the band in 1986, when his first single ‘Midnight Lady’ became a massive hit throughout Europe.

He got his first guitar at the age of seven and his early musical influences were Elvis Presley, Little Richard, Buddy Holly and Lonnie Donegan.

He formed a band at school with guitarist Alan Silson and played all over the UK in the late 60s and early 70s.

The band changed its name to Smokie and their first album ‘Pass it Around’ was released in 1975.

By the summer of 1975 they had their first hit single with ‘If You Think You Know How to Love Me’ and this was followed by a string of 15 hit singles.
