Shalamar Greatest Hits Tour plus Special Guest Gwen Dickey – The Voice of Rose Royce

Shalamar have not lost any of the charisma or performing power over the years and certainly pack a punch when it comes to live shows.

Gwen Dickey is one of the finest female vocalists of her generation – she is the voice of Rose Royce who released their first single "Car Wash" in 1976.

The Greatest Hits Tour will be a feast of non stop “banging tunes” complemented with silky smooth ballads from the golden voice of Howard Hewett – one of the greatest singers of all time. With 18 top seventy five UK hits, 11 top forty, 4 top ten chart smashing singles and over 25 million records sold, the group are one of the most successful soul acts of all time. This will be an evening to make everyone dance, forget their worries. However it will be “A Night to Remember”.

The group will perform their greatest hits such as “A Night To Remember“, "Take That to The Bank", "Second Time Around", "Make That Move", "Dead Giveaway", “Disappearing Act”, “Dancin’ In The Sheets”, “Over and Over”, Friends” and many more.

The Guardian “The hottest ticket in town at present is not for ABC, Yazoo or any other of the leading lights of the British "new pop" movement but for the Los Angeles based group Shalamar.“
