Eurovision Champions are back at Marine Hall, Fleetwood!Published Thursday, 09 February 2017
Back by popular demand - original Bucks Fizz members Cheryl Baker, Mike Nolan and Jay Aston are returning to Marine Hall, Fleetwood alongside guest fourth member Bobby McVay on Saturday 21 October.
Early in 1981, four complete strangers sat in the drawing room of a house in Fulham and were told "you are now Bucks Fizz". In the eight weeks between that first meeting and appearing on A Song for Europe on 11th March 1981, Bucks Fizz were hurled into a melee of rehearsing, recording, choreography, styling, interviews and photography. All that hard work and effort was to pay dividends - they went on to win the Song for Europe and Eurovision Song Contest 1981 and became household names around the world.
With over 20 singles released over the next few years the group enjoyed three number one hits including My Camera Never Lies, Land Of Make Believe and of course, Making Your Mind Up. They sold in excess of 15 million records, spending 219 weeks in the UK charts alone with Making Your Mind Up going to number one in nine countries!
Talking about the tour, Cheryl comments, "I am enjoying working with Mike and Jay better than I ever did before. We have such a laugh and get such a terrific response from our audience, especially when we rip the skirts off. I never dreamt I would still be singing Making Your Mind Up in my sixties, but now I'm here I'm so glad that I do!"
