SOME people view the glass as half empty but optimistic fans of the Eighties super group can see Bucks Fizz three-quarters full.
Original band members Cheryl Baker, Mike Nolan and Jay Aston will be joined by special guest Bobby McVay at High Wycombe’s Swan theatre on Sunday.
More than 30 years after they stormed charts across the globe with a string of hits including the winning 1981 Eurovision entry, the trio are back with a 70-date world tour.
Cheryl says: “Having performed several gigs with our friend Stephen Fox, Mike, Jay and I realised that people expect to see four on stage when they see Fizz, so we are delighted to introduce Bobby McVay as our guest singer for the tour.”
McVay, who steps into Bobby G’s shoes, was one-third of the UK’s 1983 Eurovision entrants, Sweet Dreams.
Jay adds: “We are really looking forward to being on the road again. Performing in a theatre gives us the chance to produce a show we can be proud of, and we truly hope our audiences enjoy hearing the hits once more, together with a few of our lesser known album tracks.”
Making Your Mind Up sold more than four million copies worldwide and Paradise Regained will be their most comprehensive tour since the Eighties.
