SPECTACULAR classical male harmony group, Blake, continue their 10th anniversary UK tour at the Concorde Club on Friday August 3.

Most boy-bands come and go within a year or two, having fallen out of favour, fallen out with each other or just unable to handle the pressure-cooker that comes with fame and constant touring.

In this respect, Blake is something of an anomaly, with over a million albums sold, No.1 hits in ten countries and approaching 150 TV appearances around the globe, these three young men continue to enthral fans the world over with their amazing singing and charismatic stage presence – it’s not a comeback, because they’ve never been away.

The Anniversary Album, featuring the Central Band of the RAF and the Royal Air Force Salon Orchestra plus members of the Military Wives Choir, was released in March and reached No.1 in the official UK Classical Artists Chart.

It is their seventh studio release and the group were determined to make it their best yet, as a celebratory gift to their legion of fans who have been with them for a decade. Hitting number one, with an album they made independently on their own record label is a dream come true for Blake, who were last at the top of the charts in 2010 with their third album Together.

Blake are known in many circles as much for their tireless charity work as they are their music, and the 10th Anniversary project is no different.

Having used crowd- funding before, this time they wanted to take it to a whole new level. Via PledgeMusic, 10 percent of all funding over their target is being donated to the RAF Charitable Trust, which aims to enhance the environment of serving personnel and their families and with a commitment to initiate and develop, within young people, an enthusiasm for aviation.
