Soul Legends The Real Thing To Play Scarborough Spa


27 Nov 2017


Multi-million selling soul band The Real Thing are set to bring their much loved disco inspired hits to Scarborough Spa as part of an extensive UK tour.

The ‘Feel The Force Tour’ will visit The Spa Theatre on Saturday 20 October 2018 and will celebrate the group’s 40th anniversary of their debut hit single ‘You to Me Are Everything’.  

Featuring the group’s three original vocalists Eddie Amoo, Chris Amoo and Dave Smith, along with their 5-piece band, the trio deliver a funky ‘in your face’ show with a strong ‘retro flavour’ with the band’s classic songs mixed with contemporary grooves.

The Liverpool based trio boast three million selling hit singles including, ‘Can’t Get by Without You’, ‘Whenever You Want My Love’ and ‘Can You Feel the Force’, making them the UK’s best-selling black group of the late 70s.

In 1986 ‘You to Me Are Everything’, ‘Can’t Get by Without You’ and ‘Can You Feel the Force’ were all remixed and became huge hits once again, thanks to their huge club following.

In 2005, ‘Love's Such a Wonderful Thing’ was sampled by French dance outfit Daft Punk and re-titled ‘So Much Love to Give’.

The same year the Freeloaders had a UK Top 10 single with ‘So Much Love to Give’ which featured The Real Thing resulting in the band charting across 3 decades.

The Real Thing recently released ‘The Real Thing Live’ DVD and CD recorded at the Philharmonic Hall, Liverpool and celebrates 40 years on the road and includes the concert in full, new material and a cover of The Beatles song ‘Eleanor Rigby’.

The band continue to tour up and down the country selling out venues including the Jazz Café, London and regularly perform at 70’s & 80’s festivals alongside such artists as Chic, Kool and the Gang, Rick Astley, Boy George and Belinda Carlisle.

Commenting on The Real Thing’s success, singer Chris Amoo said, ‘There’s always going to be a sense of nostalgia about our music. It’s the sound track to so many people’s lives and that will never die.’

Tickets for ‘The Real Thing’ go on sale from www.scarboroughspa.co.uk or via the Scarborough Spa Box Office (01723 821888) on Friday 1 December 2017 at 10am.
