The Christians

Renowned for an endless string of soulful yet socially aware hits including Forgotten Town, Ideal World, Born Again, Harvest for the World, Whats in a Word, Hooverville, Words, Father, The Bottle and many more, The Christians enjoyed huge acclaim in the late 80s and early 90s both in the UK and Europe, often confusing people with their band name (in fact just the brothers surname with absolutely no religious connotation!)

Still headed by enigmatic lead singer Garry Christian (who very much deserves the Daily Mirror’s description of him as having ‘one of the finest voices in pop’) who has only gained in vocal stature (and wit) over the years! The band are enjoying a revival currently touring successfully in the UK and Europe.

Currently embarking on a huge UK Tour playing their well known back catalogue and one or two favourites selected from newer albums.

‘It was the best gig I’ve ever been to!’ – Chris Evans
