When it comes to 1980s ballads, is there a single that has been more readily taken to the British public’s collective hearts than T’Pau’s China In Your Hand? Setting up camp on the No 1 spot throughout the Autumn of 1987, it is the very essence of the classic power ballad, with those pizzicato strings and Carol Decker’s heart-stopping voice providing the perfect soundtrack for lovelorn pop fans everywhere.

And there is more to it than meets the eye! Is China In Your Hand possibly the only No 1 single in chart history to have been based around Mary Shelley, and the nightmarish dream she used as inspiration for her classic novel Frankenstein? Amazingly, yes! And this combination of heartfelt emotion and subtle quirkiness turned T’Pau into transatlantic superstars.

Debut album Bridge of Spies went quadruple platinum, and spawned five hit singles –China In Your HandValentineSex TalkI Will Be With You, and the globe-conqueringHeart and Soul, which became a Top 5 hit in the USA… virtually unheard of for a British act at the time. Follow-up album Rage was a platinum-seller too, and – despite splitting in the early 1990s – T’Pau remained one of the best and most fondly-remembered chart stars of their era.

And now they are back! A 25th anniversary reunion concert in 2013 was a packed-out-success, and in 2014 T’Pau are on the road again. Carol Decker remains as strident, powerful and punchy a frontwoman as ever, and guitarist, songwriter and founder member Ronnie Rogers is back on board too! We are thrilled to have these multi-million selling hitmakers at ARC.

*This is the rescheduled date after the original February date was cancelled due to illness.
