A SOUL band will be performing in Tenbury Wells next month.

The Christians will be at the Regal on Saturday, March 2. 

The group, from Liverpool, burst onto the scene in 1987, with their album of the same name still being Island Records' highest-selling debut album. Singles released included Forgotten Town, Hooverville, When the Fingers Point, Ideal World, and Born Again.

The Christians then had a number one album in January 1990 called Colour, which knocked Phil Collins off the spot. It featured the song Words, which went on to be a number one single in many countries. 

They continued to be successful during the 1990s and were called upon by promoters to open huge stadiums for names like James Brown and Fleetwood Mac just to bump up the numbers.

The band is still fronted by Garry Christian and they look and sound as good as they did back in the day. Last year, they enjoyed a resurgence by being 'special gusts' for both Level 42 and Belinda Carlisle during their respective tours. 

The rest of the band include some of Liverpool's finest musicians, who provide Garry with he setting to perform at his best.

There will be a 90-minute set which includes all of their hits and other favourites such as Harvest for the World, Whats in a Word, Father, Greenbank Drive and The Bottle.

A review of the band said: "The Christians are one of those class bands a bit like Crowded House or Talk Talk that are buried in the 80s mist of time and until you hear their music again you realise you’d forgotten how much you loved them, how beautiful the harmonies were and still are, how apt the sentiments of the songs are. And you find yourself becoming very emotional and singing the words to every song."

Meanwhile, the Regal has produced a list of 101 favourite throwback films after asking people in the town to nominate. 

Voting is open until February 19, with the top 10 then picked. For more information, visit regaltenbury.co.uk/throwback-thursdays
