10CC – The Things We Do for Love 2020 Australian tour

Following on from their sold out shows across the UK, 10cc have just announced they are returning to our shores. They will play all the hits that have singled them out as one of the most inventive and influential bands in popular music.

10cc are one of the very few acts to have achieved commercial, critical and creative success in equal measure. Testament to their ongoing appeal, the band can count an array of fellow artists – from Chrissie Hynde and Axl Rose to The Feeling’s Dan Gillespie and Sophie Ellis Bextor – among their many millions of fans.

Over the course of their career so far, 10cc have scored eleven Top 10 Hits including three No. 1’s – Rubber Bullets, I’m Not In Love and Dreadlock Holiday. It’s no surprise the band has sold 30 million albums around the world. Their longevity is a testament to their timeless songs, and reflecting Gouldman’s status as one of the world’s leading songwriters. In June 2014, he was inducted into America’s Songwriter’s Hall of Fame.

The current incarnation of the band has toured around the world including Ireland, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, across the UK and Europe, at London’s 65,000-capacity British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park, and sold out the Royal Albert Hall. Co-founder Graham Gouldman, puts 10cc’s longevity down to the quality and individuality of the songs. With four decades of song-writing excellence under his belt as well as a cracking band of musicians you can easily see why. Gouldman confidently promises, “This is as near as you’re ever going to get to hearing the perfect 10cc. Hit after hit after hit. It’s relentless. We show no mercy.”

The live band features Graham Gouldman (vocals, bass and guitar); Rick Fenn (lead guitar, vocals); Paul Burgess (drums, percussion); Iain Hornal (vocals, percussion, guitar, keyboards) and Keith Hayman (keyboards, guitar, bass vocals). Paul has worked with 10cc from the beginning and Rick joined the live band in the mid-‘70s.

These shows are not to be missed.
