Following the very sad news that Eddy Amoo passed away last year, fellow band members Chris and Dave have issued the following statement:
"Chris and Dave are devastated by the loss of their brother and friend Eddy. They have been overwhelmed by the love and support of fans, colleagues, and the people of Liverpool.
Chris and Dave have made the decision to continue The Real Thing's 2018 tour. The fans' outpouring of support makes us realise how much love there is out there for The Real Thing, and we're doing this for them, and for Eddy, who was the greatest showman. It would have been Eddy's wish for us to carry on and still feel the force."
