Graham joins Ringo Starr & His All Starr Band

Graham Gouldman has accepted an invitation to join Ringo Starr & His All Starr Band for a tour of Europe next summer.

Ringo has kept the same band line-up for several years, but wanted a change for the next tour and approached Graham with the idea some months ago.

The All Starr Band also features Steve Lukather of Toto, Gregg Rolie of Santana, Men At Work’s Colin Hay, Warren Ham (whose credits include working with Toto, Donna Summer and Olivia Newton-John) and Gregg Bissonette (Santana, Toto and ELO).

“I didn’t need to think about it,” says Graham. “As I’ve said before, without the Beatles there wouldn’t have been a 10cc, so to be asked to join Ringo’s band is a huge honour and very exciting. It’ll also be a great pleasure to play alongside such esteemed musicians as Steve, Warren and the others.”

The 21-date tour will take the band to Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Luxembourg, Monaco, Netherlands, Israel and Italy.

Before the Ringo tour, Graham and 10cc will tour Germany, Holland and Australia through March and April. with a UK tour being planned for the autumn. 10cc will also be playing festivals across Europe during July-August.

Mick Wilson leaves 10cc replaced by Iain Hornal

As a result of diverging interests, long-time band member Mick Wilson has left 10cc to pursue other projects.

He is replaced by Iain Hornal who has worked with 10cc on several occasions when Mick was unavailable. Iain supported 10cc on its last UK tour and is a key member of Graham Gouldman’s Heart Full of Songs band, which toured the UK in October.

10cc returns to live shows in March with five concerts in Germany, eight in Holland and a 12-show tour of Australia in April, summer festivals in Europe and a UK tour being planned for the autumn.

”Mick has been a friend and a valued member of the band for many years and I wish him all the very best for the future,” says 10cc’s Graham Gouldman.

Happy Holidays

We are coming to the end of a most incredible year for 10cc. We have travelled extensively and played more gigs in one year than I can ever remember, and 2017 is shaping up to be more of the same. Bring it on.

I’d like to take this opportunity on behalf of the band to thank all our fans, young, and not so young, for your continued support and we all look forward to seeing you in 2017, wherever you are in the world.

Have a great Christmas/Chanukah and a happy and healthy new year.

Love
Graham

10cc Spring Tour 2017

Tickets for the 10cc  Spring Tour 2017 are available on “presale” to 10cc Fans now via Ticketline.

Among the most inventive and influential bands in the history of popular music, 10cc are one of the very few acts to have achieved commercial, critical and creative success in equal measure, with their current live incarnation still able to sell-out major concert halls.

Testament to 10cc’s 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.

With eleven Top 10 hits, including three No 1s – Rubber Bullets, I’m Not In Love and Dreadlock Holiday – it’s no surprise the band has sold 15 million albums in the UK alone.

Co-founder Graham Gouldman, who leads the current line-up, puts 10cc’s longevity down to the quality and individuality of the songs. “They don’t seem to date – they’re original. We never followed any trend, we simple wrote for our own pleasure. The fact that the songs are being played as often on the radio today as they ever were. shows how true that is,” he says.”

“The current band is as near as you’re ever going to get to hearing the perfect 10cc,” says Gouldman. “Hit after hit after hit. It’s relentless. We show no mercy.”

The live band’s line-up is:

Graham Gouldman – bass, guitars, vocals
Rick Fenn – lead guitar, vocals, bass
Paul Burgess – drums, percussion
Mick Wilson – vocals, percussion, guitar, keyboards
Keith Hayman – keyboards, guitar, bass, sax, vocals

Paul has worked with 10cc from the beginning and Rick joined the live band in the mid-‘70s.

Hop Farm festival

We played at the Hop Farm festival last Friday, July 1st.

The set was going great, but we got a nasty surprise during ‘Rubber Bullets’ when all the power went off. Unfortunately the back up generator also broke down. Undeterred we waited for about five minutes at the side of the stage until power was restored. We went back on-stage to rapturous applause and carried on with ‘bullets’ from where we were so rudely interrupted.

A fab day was had by one and all.
