Hello All

Newsletter 2nd September 2005

We hope you are enjoying your summer!


The Album spent the past 10 weeks in the UK Top 10, peaking again at Number 5 - an incredible feat considering it was first released in 1978! The Album has gone a staggering 13 times Platinum in New Zealand since its original release, and 10 times Platinum in Australia, and has gone many times Platinum or Gold in many other countries around the world.

Interestingly, the Album has now also overtaken Paul Simon's Graceland, and REM's Automatic for The People in the all-time Top 40 UK Album Charts.


Jeff and the team will produce a range of concerts in the UK in 2006 - the first 7 have been confirmed this week and will be promoted by Clear Channel Entertainment and SJM.

Jeff will conduct a 48-piece String section and band and this will be the first time the Album will have been publicly conducted in its entirety by Jeff. Justin Hayward has also confirmed he will join the Tour, as have many of the original band members, such as Chris Spedding and Ken Freeman.

The concerts will be announced to the wider world early next month (September) but as members of our Official Website, we are giving you a heads up now! You will also have the chance to pre-order your tickets before anyone else - keep an eye on our Website over the next few weeks for the best way to do so.

The concerts will take place at the following venues and on on the following dates:
Saturday 15 April 2006 - Bournemouth BIC
Sunday 16 April 2006 - Cardiff International Arena
Tuesday 18 April 2006 - London Royal Albert Hall
Wednesday 19 April 2006 - Birmingham NEC
Thursday 20 April 2006 - Nottingham Arena
Saturday 22 April 2006 - Glasgow Clyde Auditorium
Sunday 23 April 2006 - Manchester MEN Arena

The team have also recently received a number of offers for shows throughout 2006 in the UK, South Africa and Australia and are in talks at present.


Many of you will have seen the article in Daily Variety this week.

The deal was signed in Los Angeles in early August 2005 to create the Greatest Touring Show on Earth. M-Star International of China will co-produce the production with Jeff and his team and the plan is to launch the Tour in China in 2007 (there is a 12-18 month build time) and to tour the world.

Thank you all for your support and we look forward to seeing you all in person at the shows!
