Top 80s band Then Jerico are coming to Morecambe for a headline show supported by the lead singer of Curiosity Killed the Cat.

Then Jerico will perform at The Platform on Marine Road Central on Saturday December 2.

The band, fronted by Mark Shaw, first found fame in 1987 with the release of their debut album ‘First (The Sound Of Music)‘.

The record featured hit singles ‘Muscle Deep‘ and ‘The Motive‘ which remained in the UK Top 40 chart for three months, becoming the most-played record on BBC Radio 1 in 1987. The track brought Then Jerico worldwide recognition and saw them selling-out headline shows along with support tours with Iggy Pop and Propaganda, amongst others.

Their follow-up album, ‘The Big Area‘, cemented their status as one of the greatest bands of the 1980s.

Selling over 100,000 copies within the first 40 minutes of its release, ‘The Big Area‘ immediately attained gold status and consequently reached platinum sales, spawning hit singles 'Big Area', 'Sugar Box' and 'What Does it Take'.

Then Jerico will be supported by Ben Volpeliere-Pierrot, known as the front man with Curiosity Killed the Cat.

The band achieved five Top 20 singles 'Down to Earth', 'Misfit', 'Name and Number', 'Hang on in there Baby' and 'Ordinary Day' between 1987 and 1992.

The gig also features special guest Tom J Johnson.

The show is for 18s and over only.

Tickets for the show are available here.
