Alan has been invited to join the ’70’s Hit Makers’ tour of Australia this coming November 2017. Presenting a celebration of the music of the Rubettes he will be joined on stage by Richard Gower, lead vocalist of ‘Racey’ and Phil Wright, lead vocalist of ‘Paper lace’. These three bands were amongst the biggest record selling Artists in Australia during the 70’s and it will be the first time that any of their music will have been performed live by any of the three band originals in Australia. The rest of the guys will not be going on this occasion but we all wish Alan great success as it could be the precursor to touring their ‘An Evening with’ show there next year. Australian Tour company Abstract Entertainment already tour the likes of ‘Boney M’ and ‘Bay City Rollers’ in Australia and New Zealand and have shown a great interest since discovering the we are still ‘alive and kicking’ here in the Northern hemisphere indicated that if Alan’s reception is favourable they would be interested in next time bringing the whole band ‘down under’. With all the British ex pats living there we think it’s a forgone conclusion. It’s worth noting that despite all the Rubettes success in Australia, they have several gold discs from the region, they never got to tour there during the 70’s. They were so busy in Europe and elsewhere that the time could not be spared in between other commitments to go there ( you can’t just pop over for a few days ) they have always regretted this and are hopeful that even after 40 years it’s not too late. So come on you ‘Aussies’ you know what to do if you want the band to come play for you, contact these guys www.abstractentertainment.net and in the meantime catch Alan at a show near you.
