Plus Special Guest Jaki Graham
June 2023 will see a series of UK and European dates on the Shalamar – Friends’ 40th Anniversary Tour. Shalamar will perform the entire album live – for the first time ever in their history as an act.
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.
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.
Plus very special guest Jaki Graham performing all her greatest hits including: ‘Could it be I’m Falling in love’, ‘Mated’, ‘Set me free’, ‘Step Right up’, and many more.
