Bucks Fizz Live In Blackpool at Viva 3/04/2015
« on: April 04, 2015, 10:01:55 PM »
The Uk's most successful Eurovision group made a long overdue return to the Fylde coast to Viva... :thumbup1:

I first watched Bucks Fizz back in 1985 for 10 nights as I worked at the Opera House in Blackpool..
I was a young lad in the pit dressed in black to prevent people from hijacking the stage..
Although it was an amazing experience, it wasn't the original line up as Jay Aston had been replaced by Shelly Preston..



But..roll back the clock to April 4th 1981 to Dublin and the Eurovision song contest... :w00t:

Cheryl Baker, Mike Nolen, Jay Aston and Bobby G...

The original line up appeared for the first time in Blackpool together.. :thumbup1:
They are also appearing in Lytham on the 5th of June.... :tongue_smilie:

First onto the stage is Leye D Johns and the amazing Viva Showgirls, at Viva its a full cabaret experience, well worth a visit if you are planning to come to Blackpool..
And families are very welcome.. :thumbup1:








Resident vocalist Phil Jefferies..a very talented singer.. :thumbup1:

 

Leye D Johns  :tongue_smilie:





Leye and the Viva Showgirls doing a really funny medley.. :w00t:

 










After the interval,Bucks Fizz take to the stage much to the excited approval of a packed Viva.. :thumbup1:
They performed all their songs and hits superbly..

 

Jay Aston..



Cheryl Baker..



Mike Nolan..



Bobby G..





It was amazing to see them perform after so many years, I think that its fair to say that a successful group is one that actually does stand the test of time..they have !
















The sound and lighting at Viva is just first class.. :thumbup1:







































A very good reenactment of that famous night in Dublin 34 years ago..except Mike Nolan struggled in ripping Cheryl Bakers kilt off.. :tongue_smilie:



If you notice Bobby G had no such problems with Jay's kilt.. :tongue_smilie:



















The show came to a magnificent end, a superb performance by Bucks Fizz.. :thumbup1:





A special thank you to everyone at Viva and all my friends for making this an amazing night..

The superb bar staff.. :thumbup:



Martin Heywood and his superb team.. :thumbup:



Debs and Louise.. :thumbup1:



Gordon and Darren.. :thumbup1:



And a few people that I didn't know, but wanted to be in a Live In Blackpool report..
well there you go... :w00t: :w00t: :w00t:



Until next time... :thumbup:

Thank you for reading...

Fantastic pics and report pete.would of been great to see them,although i think that bobby g won the right to the name bucks fizz and isnt the one in the group you saw thats bobby mcvay,but still sounded good i bet all the same
heres a quote from the website


A change in circumstances meant that Bobby McVay, who many will know from his radio career but more probably from his pop star career in the early 80’s as a member of Sweet Dreams, the UK’s 1983 entry to Eurovision.  You can find out more about him further into the website.
We’ve tweaked our line up,  so we thought we’d tweak our website too.
We hope you like it, and also hope you’ll come and see us on the tour.
Cheryl, Mike, Jay … and Bobby xxx
