Without doubt one of the most exciting bands to come out of Great Britain in the past 50 years. With their unique
blend of perfect pop-rock’n’roll, outrageous flamboyance and pure fun, and no less than 23 Top-20 singles of which
6 were No-1 smash hits…plus 6 smash albums, Slade have become a firm favorite in the hearts of pop fans all over
the world.

SLADE’S chart career has spanned 6 decades and their enduring songs “Far Far Away”, “Cum On Feel The Noize
and “Coz I Luv You” are still featured today in TV commercials for some of the World’s biggest companies.

SLADE first hit the road in 1966, touring throughout Great Britain and Europe and becoming a regular concert
attraction. Joining forces with the former Animals bass guitarist and Jimi Hendrix Experience manager, Chas
Chandler, Slade achieved their first chart hit in May 1971 with the Bobby Marchan song “Get Down And Get With
It” then, released in October of the same year “Coz I Luv You” was the band’s first No-1 and a huge hit across

Throughout the seventies, Slade became one of Europe’s biggest bands, touring and recording continually and
making regular trips to America, Japan and other parts of the world. Slade’s catalogue of hits are synonymous with
the era:- “Take Me Bak ‘Ome”, “Mama We’er All Crazee Now”, “Cum On Feel The Noize”, “Gudbye T’ Jane”, along with
the many others provided a soundtrack to the Glam Generation and are still today, heavily featured on any
retrospective of the time.

At the beginning of the eighties, Slade were invited to appear at the Reading Rock Festival, a massive annual event
which attracted over 100,000 people. They literally stole the show, giving some of the worlds biggest rock bands a
serious run for their money whilst kindling 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. Slade were back!

Not content to rest on their Glam laurels, Slade began forging a new path through the hugely influential British
heavy rock scene. A second successful appearance at Castle Donnington in 1981, before a crowd of over 60,000
people, consolidated the bands position and paved the way for the single “Lock Up Your Daughters”, and the album
Til Deaf Do Us Part“.

While Slade were busy in the UK releasing the massive hit “My Oh My” to huge acclaim, LA metal band Quiet Riot
were spreading the word Stateside with their version of “Cum On Feel The Noize”, which proved so successful that
they followed it up with “Mama Weer All Crazee Now”. Throughout the start of the eighties Slade toured and
recorded due to them once again being a major force in British pop’n’rock.

The early nineties saw the bands “Radio Wall Of Sound” hit the UK Top-30 and thereby give Slade a solid 30 year
chart run!

In 1991, due to the continual demand from around the world, founder Slade members Dave Hill and Don Powell
decided to return to touring by playing a few select dates in Europe prior to embarking on what turned out to be a
very successful two month tour of Australia.

SLADE have continued to tour the world. They are firm favorites on the lucrative German festival scene and
undertake an annual UK “Merry Christmas Everybody” tour in December. They have a huge following of fans and
regularly play concert dates in Germany, Poland, Belgium, Holland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Czech
Republic, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Spain & France. Having just returned from a festival in
Gibraltar, next stop is Greenland and Faroe Islands.

and exhilarating roller-coaster ride of pure unadulterated rock’n’roll.
