Multi-million selling soul band The Real Thing are ready to give their much loved disco inspired hits a new lease of life with an extensive UK tour. Featuring the group’s two original vocalists, along with their 5-piece band, deliver a funky ‘in your face’ show with a strong ‘retro flavour’ with the band’s classic songs mixed with contemporary grooves.

“There’s always going to be a sense of nostalgia about our music. It’s the sound track to so many people’s lives and that will never die.”
Chris Amoo
