Go West announce December 2011 UK 3D tour- tickets on sale Friday 20th May
Posted: 19th May 2011
Go West's breakthrough came in 1985, with two hit UK singles, 'We Close Our Eyes' and 'Call Me', both featuring on that year's million-selling eponymous debut LP. But Peter Cox and Richard Drummie already had a long history together, having met in 1974. In 1982, their collaboration got serious when, as 'Cox and Drummie', they signed a song-writing deal.
Call Me and We Close Our Eyes - which proved to be radio gold and can still be heard regularly, more than a quarter of a century later - were recorded as Go West and Chrysalis signed them up
Then it all went a little quiet for Go West. Some modest chart success followed but nothing to match 1985's dizzy highlights. That was until Julia Roberts turned up as The Unlikeliest Prostitute Ever, Frankly in 1990's hit film Pretty Woman. The soundtrack featured Go West's 'King of Wishful Thinking' and Cox and Drummie had themselves a US top ten hit single.
Again, the epilogue to this latest success was less compelling and in 1997, Go West went south with Cox recording as a solo artist until an unlikely reunion in 2007. In 2010, the first part of '3D' - a new studio album comprising three separate EPs was released and warmly received.
Now into 2011 - and still looking every bit the part - Go West are taking 3D on a 10-date tour in December, ending at the O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire on 22nd December.
Tickets for the Wolverhampton date are available now, starting at £20. For all other dates, tickets start at £20, except Shepherd's Bush (£22.50) and are on sale from 9AM Friday 20th May.
You can also see Go West on 18th June at the Isle of Man Bay Festival, at Capesthorne Hall in Cheshire on 23rd July and at Rewind Scotland on 30th July; tickets available now.
