All four artists have had 55 top ten hits and over 200 million record sales between them. This is a once in a lifetime tour – the only time all four of these seminal acts will perform on the same stage together.
From television to recording and record-breaking concert tours and from Broadway to Las Vegas production shows, David Cassidy has made his mark and been lauded with awards and nominations ranging from Grammy’s to Emmy’s, Performer of the Year, and many more. David has certainly proven that it is talent that keeps people coming to shows, turning on the television, and buying records.
Leo Sayer almost needs no introduction. He is held in great esteem as a live performer and recording artist by all age groups - from 6 to 60. This is as much due to his appearing famously with the Muppets, the Wiggles and on the Charlie’s Angels Soundtrack, as the countless hit songs he has written and recorded throughout his 40 plus years career.
In the international music charts there have been more than twenty top ten singles and five top ten albums in Leo Sayer’s illustrious recording career. Add to this the hits written for Roger Daltrey, Cliff, Three Dog Night, Tina Turner, Gene Pitney, Jennifer Warnes, and both Stella and Dolly Parton. It proves his prowess as an internationally acclaimed and talented songwriter.
In 1970 Hot Chocolate, with the help of record producer Mickie Most, began releasing tracks that became hits, such as “Love is Life”, “Emma”, “You Could Have Been a Lady”, and “I Believe in Love”.
It was in the disco era of the mid-1970s that Hot Chocolate became a big success. A combination of high production standards, the growing confidence of the main songwriting team of Wilson and Brown, and tight harmonies enabled them to secure further big hits like “You Sexy Thing” and “Every 1’s a Winner”.
With chart-topping hits like Living Next Door to Alice, Lay Back in the Arms of Someone and If You Think You Know How to Love Me, and constant tours of the UK and Europe, the internationally successful British pop group, Smokie is one of the most popular bands in the world today.
Smokie first got together at school in Yorkshire in the late 60s. After going through various names and styles, they signed with Mickie Most’s then ultra-hot RAK label and found themselves chart bound. Songs like If You Think You Know How To Love Me, Don’t Play Your Rock’n’Roll To Me, It’s Your Life and Oh Carol (all Top 10 entries) became radio staples and gave Smokie their ticket to travel the world.
