Brotherhood of Man and Bucks Fizz will be joining forces for one night only at the Playhouse, in Weston-super-mare, Somerset on July 14. The legendary Eurovision Song Contest winners will be performing their winning entries Save Your Kisses For Me and Making Your Mind Up among other favourite hits of theirs.

Brotherhood of Man won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1976 with Save your kisses for me and Bucks Fizz followed five years later with Making your mind up. Since then the two bands have had a successful career with a collective total of 6 number 1 records, more than 30 chart hits and over 40 million records sales.

Save your kisses for me proved to be one of the biggest selling records of all time with a total of more than five million copies sold worldwide and six weeks at #1 of the UK charts. It also charted at #1 in 32 more countries. Brotherhood of man themselves boast the fact that until today they retain the exact same 70's line-up.

Bucks Fizz, on the other hand, can boast another record. That of 14 different band members from 1981 to date. They will always remain in Eurovision history for their skirt ripping gimmick, the first to be performed by an act on stage, as well as for the fact that the actual UK selection process has been named after their winning song Making your mind up (MYMU).

The two bands will perform together on July 14, at the Playhouse, in Weston, Somerset. Tickets cost 15 and more information is available here.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined esctoday.com in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
