Shalamar will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the ‘Friends’ album by performing the entire LP live in concert for the first time in their history.
‘Friends’ is a platinum-selling album, featured four top twenty hit singles – ‘A Night To Remember’, ‘Friends’, ‘There It Is’ and ‘I Can Make You Feel Good’. The songs were huge and dominated the clubs and radio alike. ‘Friends’ was the seminal album for the group and was put together by renowned producer Leon Sylvers. It sold over 1 million copies in the UK alone. It was one of the best selling albums of the year and has endured the test of time with songs that are still acclaimed today. As Howard Hewett lead singer said: “Throughout the years we’ve played the 4 hit singles plus varying other tracks from the album but never the whole 10 tracks”.
Shalamar will not just perform the album, but will also sing their greatest hits such as – ‘Take That to The Bank’, ‘Second Time Around’, ‘Make That Move’, ‘Dead Giveaway’ and many more.
