Soul-pop aficionados The Christians are live at The Flowerpot in Derby this weekend.
Hailing from Liverpool, the Christians are best known for a series of hits in the late 80s and 90s from their million-selling eponymously-titled debut album and it’s chart-topping follow-up Colours.
Their 1987 double-platinum debut album, The Christians, entered the album chart at number two and featured the hit singles Forgotten Town, Hooverville, Ideal World and Born Again.
In 1988 they released a cover of the Isley Brothers’ Harvest for the World, with all proceeds going to British Third-World charities.
They also performed with other Liverpool artists Paul McCartney, Holly Johnson and Gerry Marsden on a version of Ferry Cross The Mersey, released in aid of those affected by the Hillsborough football disaster, which stayed at number one for three weeks.
They are at The Flowerpot on Saturday, May and doors open at 8pm.
Entry is £20 and tickets are also available in advance from the venue or online at www.rawpromo.co.uk
