Stylistics star to perform at '40 Years of Disco’ UK tour

WORLD RENOWNED: Eban Brown

WITH THE sad news that Eddy Amoo passed away on Friday, The Real Thing will not be taking part on the forthcoming ‘40 Years of Disco’ UK tour. Replacing them on the tour will be world-renowned recording artist Eban Brown, the former lead singer of multi-platinum group The Stylistics, who will perform a selection of the band’s biggest hits. Eban is set to join six of the biggest and legendary disco acts to ever appear on the same stage; Sister Sledge, Tavares, Rose Royce, Boney M, Odyssey and George McCrae

For four decades disco has ruled the charts and dance floors and is currently stronger and more popular than ever. Taking in 4 arenas across the country, starting at Leeds First District Arena on 15th March, touching Wembley’s SSE Arena in London on the 16th and culminating at Liverpool’s Echo Arena on 18th March, ‘40 Years of Disco’ tour is a high-energy hits only live extravaganza show.

Disco started in the early 70’s in the clubs of New York with Studio 54, which opened in 1977, being the most famous. The same year the ‘Disco Fever’ album spent 6 weeks at No.1 and was still there at Christmas.

‘Native New Yorker’ by Odyssey became one of the first major disco hits and they also happen to be on this groundbreaking tour.

By 1978 the ‘Saturday Night Fever’ album spent 18 weeks at No. 1 only to be knocked off the No.1 spot by another star act from the ’40 Years Of Disco’ tour - Boney M with their album ‘Night Flight To Venus’ (that also spent 4 weeks at No.1). In 1978 the ‘Best Disco Album In The World’ spent 6 weeks at No. 1. Disco has never gone away and is here to stay.

The dates are as follows:

MARCH 2018

Thurs 15: LEEDS - First Direct Arena

Fri 16: LONDON - The SSE Arena, Wembley

Sat 17: BIRMINGHAM - Genting Arena

Sun 18: LIVERPOOL - Echo Arena
