Tour name: 10cc's Graham Gouldman presents Heart Full of Songs
Anyone who has attended a 10cc concert in recent years is likely to have seen band co-founder Graham Gouldman's opening acoustic set, featuring some of the hits he wrote for other artists.
The success of those performances, in which fellow 10cc band members back Gouldman, has evolved into Heart Full of Songs, which plays a more significant role as opening act on autumn 2012’s 28-concert 10cc tour.
Taking it a stage further in spring 2013, under the banner of Graham Gouldman's Heart Full of Songs, Gouldman and his 10cc bandmates Rick Fenn, Mick Wilson and Mike Stevens will give a series of stand-alone, 90-minute acoustic performances in intimate settings
The shows will feature 10cc classics such as I'm Not In Love and Dreadlock Holiday; pre-10cc Gouldman hits such as Bus Stop and Look Through Any Window (written for The Hollies), Heart Full of Soul and For Your Love (The Yardbirds) and No Milk Today (Herman's Hermits); as well as songs from his highly acclaimed new solo album Love And Work. Expect some surprises too!
Also appearing is acclaimed singer-songwriter Garron Frith, whose last album Away from the Bright Lights has been fabulously well-received. "If the likes of Ryan Adams or Josh Ritter had delivered this everyone would be gushing about songs like Not the Man, The Remedy and Good Thing." Daily Express. Garron has already opened for the likes of Peter Green, Jack Bruce and Robert Cray, so expect great things!
