10cc to Perform First U.S. Concert Since 1978

BRITISH POP LEGENDS, LED BY CO-FOUNDER GRAHAM GOULDMAN,
PERFORM FIRST U.S. CONCERT IN SINCE 1978

10cc
For the first time back in the U.S. since 1978, British pop-art band 10cc performs at The Concert Hall in New York City, on Friday, July 13, part of a two-date flying visit to North America. The other show is a headline spot at Ottawa BluesFest in Canada.

Over their 40-year career, 10cc has sold over 30 million albums worldwide. From their breakthrough debut single "Donna" in 1972 to instantly recognizable smash hits, "I'm Not in Love," "The Things We Do For Love," "Dreadlock Holiday," "Wall Street Shuffle" and many more, 10cc combined progressive art-rock tendencies with an ear for melody, creating a truly influential body of work.

Led by co-founding Graham Gouldman, the current 10cc line-up has been together for 10 years and recently toured Australia, Japan and Europe – even visiting Iceland - will be finally unleashed in NYC, with old and new fans experiencing the live energy and excellence of their classic tracks.

In addition to a full 90-minute set of 10cc hits, audiences will be treated to an acoustic performance featuring some of the hit songs Gouldman has written for other artistes, such as "For Your Love", and "Heart Full of Soul", (for The Yardbirds), "Bus Stop" and "Look Through Any Window" (The Hollies), "Listen People" and "No Milk Today" (Herman's Hermits), "Pamela, Pamela" (Wayne Fontana) and "Tallyman" for Jeff Beck.

10cc was originally comprised of Graham Gouldman, Eric Stewart, Kevin Godley and Lol Creme. The current live touring band is: Graham Gouldman (vocals, guitar, bass), Rick Fenn (guitars, vocals, bass), Paul Burgess (drums, percussion), Mick Wilson (vocals, guitars, keyboards, percussion), Mike Stevens (keyboards, guitar, sax, bass, vocals). Paul has worked with 10cc from the beginning and Rick joined the live band in the mid-'70s.
