THREE legendary pop bands will join forces this year for a spectacular one-off tour.

Hue and Cry.Hue and Cry.

Go West, Hue And Cry and The Christians will unite on the same bill for the first time ever and will perform in Bristol.

Audiences will be able to witness pop music at its very best with hit after hit such as We Close Our Eyes, Call Me, King Of Wishful Thinking, Labour Of Love, Looking For Linda, Violently and Harvest For The World.

Go West won a Brit Award for Best Newcomer in 1986 and the 1990s started with them acquiring the opening track King Of Wishful Thinking on the hugely successful Pretty Woman soundtrack album.

Hue and Cry burst onto the UK music scene in the late 1980s with the outstandingly successful albums Seduced and Abandoned and Remote. And their award winning style of intellectual, yet appealing pop songs, gave rise to their continued success.

Merseyside stars The Christians were prime movers in the soul scene that emerged out of England’s North West at the end of the 1980s.

Along with other iconic bands they brought a distinctive soul edge to the charts at the end of that heady decade and fans can expect the same at this concert as they revive hits such as Born Again, Hooverville and Ideal World.

The show will be on stage at the Bristol Hippodrome on November 10 at 7.30pm. Tickets, priced £29.40-33.40, are available from the box office on 08448 713012.
