Shalamar - "Friends" 40th Anniversary Tour
plus Special Guest Jaki Graham and Lauraine McIntosh (Cool Notes)
Shalamar will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the “Friends” album by performing the entire albumlive in concert for the first time in their history!
“Friends” is a platinum-selling album, featured four top twenty hit singles - “A Night To Remember”, “Friends”, “There It Is” and “I Can Make You Feel Good”. The songs were huge and dominated the clubs and radio alike. "Friends" was the seminal album for the group and was put together by renowned producer Leon Sylvers.
We are also celebrating the 40th anniversary of the legendary Top of the Pops performances by Jeffrey Daniel, who demonstrated the first ever moonwalk on European TV screens and created a street dance and body popping craze. When promoting Shalamar hit singles he became the first ever artist to represent their record on the programme, purely using dance as the focal point. This performance changed music culture forever. Jeffrey has been an inspiration to millions of people across the world including the man he mentored - Michael Jackson.
The "Friends" album outsold OMD, Abba, Queen, The Rolling Stones, Culture Club and Meat Loaf –to name but a few. It was one of the best selling albums of the year and has endured the test of time with songs that are still acclaimed today.
Shalamar will not just perform the album, but will also sing their greatest hits such as - "Take That to The Bank", "Second Time Around", "Make That Move", "Dead Giveaway" and many more.
