10cc to play Shrewsbury show

By Lucy Todman | Shrewsbury entertainment | Published:

They made their name in the 1970s but are still selling out venues worldwide and now, following their triumphant show in Shrewsbury last year, 10cc are returning to the town.

Following the advance sell-out of their last UK tour, 10cc have announced a 26-date UK tour this Autumn, and will be performing at Theatre Severn on November 6.

They will be performing the hits which have singled them out as one of the most inventive and influential bands in the history of popular music.

Forming in 1972, the band have had 11 Top 10 Hits, and over 15 million albums sold in the UK alone.

10cc have achieved three No 1 singles – Rubber Bullets, Dreadlock Holiday and, I’m Not In Love, which features prominently in the soundtrack to the film Guardians of the Galaxy, which spawned a No 1 album in the United States.

The line-up features founder Graham Gouldman (bass, guitar, vocals), Rick Fenn (lead guitar, bass, vocals), Paul Burgess (drums, percussion) – both of whom have been with the band since the mid-’70s - Keith Hayman (keyboards, guitars, bass, vocals) and Paul Canning (vocals, percussion, guitar, keyboards).

Since the most recent live version of the band has been established, 10cc have toured worldwide, including in Australia, Ireland Japan, New Zealand, across the UK and Europe, at London’s 65,000-capacity British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park, and selling out the Royal Albert Hall.

Tickets available from or from Theatre Severn box office on 01732 281281. For more information go to
