One of Australia’s most successful recording bands from the 1980s, Eurogliders, are reuniting for a run of special shows throughout 2014.

With a swag of hits to their name such as Heaven (Must Be There), We Will Together, City of Soul and Can’t Wait to See You to name a few, these concerts promise to be the perfect stroll down memory lane for music fans.

After doing a handful of shows throughout Victoria last year, it’s evident that music fans still love the band’s music as much as when they smashed onto the Australian music scene with chart-topping albums and singles.

Grace Knight says she didn’t think twice about reuniting the band.

‘I jumped at the chance of getting back onstage with Bernie and singing our old hits, plus a few newies,’ she says. ‘I like the challenge of jumping from one genre to another.’

Bernie says that though it’s been a while between gigs, the band never actually broke up.

‘It always feels very comfortable up there on stage and we have played these songs so many times over the years that a break between shows allows the songs to breathe a little – like wine,’ he says.

‘They always come up as a bit different, but they are the same recognisable songs that audiences have loved and sung along with in the past. This time will be no different.’

See them at the Lismore Workers Club on Friday.
