PLEASE NOTE – THIS IS AN STANDING SHOW
T’Pau burst onto the music scene in 1987 with the hit “Heart & Soul” reaching No. 4 in both the UK & US charts. Taken from the debut album “Bridge Of Spies”. It’s innovative use of a rap verse by a white female vocalist introduced the world to the distinctive lead vocals of Carol
Decker & the song writing talents of Carol & Ronnie Rogers.
After a European Arena Tour supporting Bryan Adams, the band toured UK City Halls and Theatres as headliners to tie in with the next single, the classic ballad “China In Your Hand”. Nobody could have predicted the impact of ‘China’ which stayed at No. 1 for 5 weeks – the
longest serving No. 1 of the year .Simultaneously Bridge Of Spies occupied the number 1 album slot for 2 weeks. Their own arena concerts followed.
To date, China In Your Hand has appeared on more than 200 compilations, and has become part of the fabric of the 80’s. After further hits “Valentine”, “I Will Be With You”, and “Sex Talk”, the Bridge Of Spies album was certified quadruple platinum in the UK, selling 1.2 million copies. 1988’s Rage also went platinum.
The original line up of T’Pau split in 1991 after a final Top 20 hit “Whenever You Need Me”. Greatest hits album “Heart & Soul: The Very Best Of T’pau” was released in 1993.
In 1998 Carol recorded “Red” the first new T’Pau studio album for 6 years. Carol and Ronnie went back into studio to record “Pleasure And Pain”, released in 2015 to 5 star reviews, followed by a sell out “Songs And Stories” acoustic tour in 2016.
