10cc is preparing to take their classic album Sheet Music on the road in early 2015.
The group will perform the album in its entirety on a tour of the U.K. with dates throughout February (and a couple in May).
Sheet Music was the group’s second album. Released in 1974, the set made it to number 9 in the U.K. and 81 in the U.S. and spawned the British top ten hit The Wall Street Shuffle.
The first set of the night will be dedicated to the album while the second set will include songs from throughout the band’s catalog.
Graham Gouldman said of the band “Year on year we get busier and visit more countries. It’s great, we love touring and playing together and the audiences these days are very gratifying. You get the people you would expect, who grew up with 10cc, but you also get young kids who know the songs too.
“The songs don’t seem to date. They are original, we never followed any trend, we simply wrote for our own pleasure. The fact that the songs are being played as often on the radio today as they ever were shows how true that is.”
