ALICE – A Tribute to Smokie

• Played to more than 20 million fans

• Sold over 20 million records worldwide

• ‘Living Next Door To Alice’ has sold over 10 million copies

To be rock 'n' roll survivors is an achievement. To be Europe's top live band, forty three years after its inception is truly fantastic; but to still be enthusiastic, fresh, totally committed and in love with the music is a positive miracle.

The first public offering by the newly named band 'Smokie' was promptly banned by Radio One as they felt Pass It Around conjured up visions of extremely nasty drugs. It took quite a long period of time for the 'Smokie' hit machine to slip into gear. In fact the band were actually recording their second album for Chinn and Chapman in Paris when the news came through that their single If You Think You Know How To Love Me had started to sell well in the UK. It eventually peaked at No. 3 and went onto sell millions around the world. 'Smokie' consisting of Chris, Terry, Alan and Pete Spencer on drums spent the next 5 years touring the globe collecting Silver, Gold and Platinum discs almost everywhere they ventured with songs such as Don't Play Your Rock 'n' Roll To Me, Living Next Door To Alice and Oh Carol.

Kega Group with Gareth James and his band presents “ALICE – A Tribute to SMOKIE”.
