10cc - Greatest Hits and more Tour

10cc did a theatre tour through the Netherlands during February and March. I recently found the time to write a late review about it.



It sounds strange but it turned out to be a great succes. 10cc nowadays is mainly Graham Gouldman, the only founder member left of the four who started 10cc in 1972. Besides Graham Gouldman Rick Fenn and Paul Burgess are involved with the band since 1977. Mick Wilson joined in 2000 and Keith Hayman is the musical director of Cliff Richard and working with 10cc since 2006.

Still the subtitle for the tour is "Featuring Graham Gouldman and Friends". But it's nice to see such respected artists perform in a theatre creating an intimate atmosphere. Although I've never seen the legendary line-up or the two plus line-up in later years, this re-incarnation of 10cc delivers a good evening of great songs performed with a lot of fun and enthusiasm. It was just a walk along memory lane with a pack of great seventies hit singles, some sixties tracks written by Graham Gouldman for various artists during those days like The Hollies and Herman's Hermits, some nice album tracks like Old Wild Men and From Rochdale To Ocho Rios and the Graham Gouldman/Andrew Gold track Ready To Go Home from 10cc's final studio album Mirror Mirror from 1996.

It turned out to be over much sooner than expected. But what a concert it was. One of the best I have ever visited. A great performance.
