About this Event

LOVE DISTRACTION:

LOVE distrACTION is the UK’s no.1 premier Tribute to The Human League. Utilising a clever mixture of live synthesizers and guitar, this truly accurate, authentic, dedicated and genuine tribute act capture the exact mood, essence and feel of The Human League.

The band consists of Nic Price who delivers an uncannily accurate vocal portrayal of the mighty Phil Oakey, Nick Stylianides – Musical Director, programmer and live keyboards plus Russ Harvey – programmer, keyboards and live guitar. There are also a small group of talented professional singers and artists taking on the roles of Susan Sully and Joanne Catherall. Formed in August 2017, they have enjoyed rapid success, playing an impressive mixture of shows all over the UK, including the extremely popular Butlin’s 80s weekenders, Pontins 48 Hour Party Weekenders, Theatres, Music venues, Festivals, Private and Corporate functions.

Known for their ability to sound exactly like the iconic 80s group, LOVE distrACTION’s attention to detail and musicianship is the reason why many are already referring to them as the UK’s premier Tribute to The Human League. There may be other bands who look the part, but Love DistrAction is as true as it gets to the real thing, with their captivating concert style show, guaranteed to bring back special memories, keeping you fully entertained and mesmerised from the time they walk on stage, right through to their breathtaking finale.

ERASURED:

Mark and Pete met in 1996 when they both gravitated to Manchester, producing two albums of original material together.

After Mark appeared on ITV’s “Stars In Their Eyes” in 1995 (and again for the Christmas special in 1996) as Erasure’s Andy Bell, it was suggested by a mutual friend they should consider performing as an Erasure tribute band.

They toured the tribute circuit for a further 10 years, including a number of Pride festivals, performing with the likes of Hazel Dean, Adam Rickett and Sonia. After 10 years of hard gigging the fun just wasn’t there anymore, and both Mark and Pete remained firm friends but diversified into other areas of the music industry.

Then in 2018 Mark and Pete were invited to recreate the recent arena gigs Robbie Williams had done with Erasure. They agreed to do the gig as a ‘one off’ for nostalgia’s sake. The show was a huge success and they again found their passion for Erasure music, and started touring again, with new technology and new outfits!

LEE JAMES from True Gold:

True Gold began life way back in 2005, when founding member Lee James put an advert out for musicians, which would form into a Spandau Ballet tribute band known as Highly Strung. The band split in 2010, only to reform after many requests to do so, under the new name of True Gold 'The Spandau Ballet Experience'.

The band is now sounding, and looking better than ever! Having performed in 100's of venues over the years, they have courted much praise from renowned artists.

True Gold are the 'official' Spandau Ballet tribute band having received praise from none other than Spandau's very own Gary Kemp, Steve Norman & Tony Hadley!

True Gold have performed twice with Tony, the second time coming in 2014 when Lee & Tony sang together on BBC's The One Show. ​

As Gary Kemp once said after seeing a photo of True Gold performing "Double Take! Is that Tony up there???"
