Former British Eurovision Song Contest representatives, and winners of their respective editions back in 1976 and 1981, Brotherhood of Man and Bucks Fizz, will give a joint concert this Saturday, August 29th, in Kidderminster, Worcestershire, UK. Raised funds will be donated to an educational charity project.
The show will feature several hits that made the two groups popular within the United Kingdom and abroad in the seventies and eighties, such as If you can’t stand the heat, My camera never lies (Bucks Fizz), Angelo and Figaro (Brotherhood of Man), and of course their winning Eurovision entries, Making your mind up and Save your kisses for me.
Event organiser, Steve Jones, said: "These two bands dominated the pop world during the seventies and early eighties and sold over 40 million records". Mr. Jones went on saying that “They were regular performers on Top of the Pops and it is really exciting to have them performing for us in Kidderminster".
All the income generated by the concert will be donated to Sunfield special school in Clent, boosting the appeal for the new educational centre at the site. Referring to this, Steve Jones explained: "I have been organising events for Sunfield for some years now and, when I heard about the appeal for the new £3.5 million classroom facilities at the school I really wanted to help, because, as a charity, they do not receive any government funding for this sort of project".
The show will take place at Kidderminster Harriers Social Club in Stadium Close, Kidderminster, Worcestershire, and is scheduled to start at 20:00 BST (21:00 CET), with the supporting DJ. the entire original line-up of Brotherhood of Man will jump in to stage at 20:30 BST (21:30 CET), followed by Bucks Fizz.
Tickets can be purchased on the box office or in advance by calling Steve Jones on 07834 519520.
