One of the most exciting bands to come out of Great Britain are going back on tour this month.

Slade’s Rockin’ Home for Christmas Tour comes to London on Friday, December 20.

With their unique blend of pop, rock ‘n’ roll, outrageous flamboyance and pure fun, and no less than 23 Top 20 singles of which six were number one smash hits, Slade have become a firm favourite of pop fans all over the world.

Slade’s chart career has spanned five decades and six smash albums, and their enduring songs Cum On Feel The Noize and Coz I Luv You are instantly recognisable.

Slade first hit the road in 1966, touring Great Britain and Europe. Joining forces with former Animals bass guitarist, Chas Chandler, Slade achieved their first chart hit in May 1971 with the Bobby Marchan song Get Down And Get With It. Released in October of the same year, Coz I Luv You was their first number one.

Throughout the 70s, Slade became one of Europe’s biggest bands. Slade’s catalogue of hits are synonymous with the era, including Take Me Bak ‘Ome, Mama We’er All Crazee Now, Gudbye T’ Jane, along with the many others provided a soundtrack to the Glam Generation.

At the beginning of the 80s, Slade were invited to appear at the Reading Rock Festival. Their scene-stealing performance kindled new interest from a whole new audience. As a result, the band signed a new record deal and unleashed the anthem We’ll Bring The House Down, which reached the Top 10 in the UK in January 1981.

A second successful appearance at Castle Donnington in 1981 consolidated the band’s position and paved the way for the album Til Deaf Do Us Part.

The early 90s saw the band’s Radio Wall Of Sound hit the UK Top 30 and thereby give Slade a solid 30 year chart run.

Slade have continued to tour the world and undertake an annual UK Merry Christmas Everybody tour in December.

Slade today is still one of the most exciting bands on the road, and their stage performance is a dynamic, powerful and exhilarating roller-coaster ride of pure unadulterated rock ‘n’ roll.
