Pop sensations to perform at Portishead venue

They were pop sensations of the 70s and 80s, now Paul Young, Kiki Dee and China Crisis will be performing their classics at Somerset Hall in Portishead later this year.

All profits from the concerts, which will be kicking off with electro-pioneers, China Crisis on October 11, will be going towards funding activities and events for local charities.

The next to perform in this exciting live music events series will be Kiki Dee and Carmelo Luggeri performing on November 2, followed by Paul Young with Los Pacaminos on January 16.

Tim Wrathall of event promoters Assemblage said: “As well as bringing amazing music to a fantastic, intimate location, the objective is to use profits to fund much-needed events for community groups in the region.”

China Crisis, founded by Eddie Lundon and Gary Daly in 1979, achieved major success in the UK with five top 40 singles and three top 40 albums.

They will be visiting Portishead as part of their RETROspective tour will see them performing classics such as “African and White”, “Christian” and “Working with Fire and Steel”, alongside songs from all of their seven studio albums.
