Civic date T'Pau star Carol

EIGHTIES chart-topper Carol Decker is heading for Rotherham’s Civic Theatre as part of a UK to mark the 25th anniversary of her band T’Pau’s quadruple platinum album, Bridge of Spies.

Carol will be performing hits like China in Your Hand, which stayed at number 1 for five weeks, and Heart And Soul, as well as favourite album tracks.

Carol first appeared on the music scene in 1987, fronting the successful pop / rock band T'pau.

Instantly memorable with a huge voice and a mass of red hair, Carol made an undeniable impact on the public.

The band's debut album spawned a string of worldwide hits, including Valentine, and, of course, most notably China In Your Hand, which occupied the number one slot in the UK for 5 weeks.

Carol is one of a handful of artists who has achieved a simultaneous number one single and number one album. Platinum albums Rage and The Promise followed adding to the band's worldwide success.

T'pau toured globally and continuously with the likes of Bryan Adams and Nik Kershaw, eventually selling out their own arena shows including Wembley and the Birmingham NEC.

The original line-up split in 1991, but Carol continues to tour and record under the banner of T'pau.

She has also acted on the West End stage in Mum's The Word, in an ensemble cast including Patsy Palmer, Jennie Éclair and Imogen Stubbs.

Over the last 20 years Carol has been a popular guest on countless TV and Radio shows including Buzzcocks, Trigger Happy TV, Hit Me Baby One More Time, Just The Two Of Us, The Matthew Wright Show, Celebrity Mastermind, The Christian O'Connell Beer & Cake Club with David Tennant.

Carol has also presented radio shows for London's LBC, BBC Radio Berks and Absolute 80s.

T'pau will be performing at the Civic Theatre on Tuesday April 30 at 7.30pm.

Tickets are priced at £19.50 (£17.50 concessions) and can be purchased in person from the Box Office in The Rotherham Visitor Centre in All Saints' Square, via phone on 01709 823621 or online at www.rotherham.gov.uk/theatres.
