The band’s live lineup for this tour is Graham Gouldman on bass, guitars and vocals; Rick Fenn on lead guitar, vocals and bass; Paul Burgess on drums and percussion; Mick Wilson on vocals, percussion, guitar and keyboards and Mike Stevens on keyboards, guitar, bass, sad and vocals.
“The band is sounding fantastic!” says 10cc leader, Graham Gouldman. “Our main strength is the songs. Hit after hit after hit. It’s relentless. We show no mercy.”
With Dreadlock Holiday and it’s instantly recognisable chorus of “I don’t like cricket – I love it” being featured across film and television from The Social Network to The Mighty Boosh, 10cc have dominated radiowaves and pop charts since their formation in 1972.
“Year on year we get busier and busier. It’s great, we love touring and playing together and we get on really well. The audiences these days are very gratifying. You get the people you would expect, who grew up with 10cc, but you also get young kids who know the songs too,” he continues.
“Now whether they’ve discovered 10cc for themselves, via the internet or radio, or just grown up with their parents playing it in the house, I don’t know. But we get a great mix of people from the generations.”
