The Real Thing: The Brand New Day Tour


The Real Thing, with original vocalists Chris Amoo and Dave Smith and a live five-piece band, are on tour promoting their first new album of original material in 44 years -  A Brand New Day, along with their new soulful  single  Hang On Never Let Go.

On the reverse of this single is a live version of their classic composition Children of the Ghetto which has been covered by the likes of Courtney Pine, Paul Hardcastle, Mart J Bligh and Philip Bailey. This is the first time that a recording of this track has been made featuring lead vocals by Chris Amoo.

The Real Thing enjoyed success in both the 1970s & 80s with 3 Top 10 singles. The No 1 Hit You To Me Are Everything, Can't Get By Without You and Can You Feel The Force are all still featured daily on all the major UK radio stations. They also have around one million plays or more on Spotify each month.

They also had a  hit movie Everything  which  played nationally in cinemas and was  also aired on BBC and Chanel 4  in August 2020. This was followed by their Greatest Hits Album which made the official National Album charts and  reached No 2 in the Amazon download charts.

THE REAL THING are undoubtedly a force to be reckoned with.
