T'Pau Classics Come To Coventry 

A Coventry night spot will fill with the sounds of one of the best-loved songs from the eighties later this month.

Carol Decker will visit SkyDome-based Jumpin Jaks on Tuesday 27 March to perform some of the smash hits which propelled her to fame as lead singer of Típau.

Decker burst onto the music scene with the hit 'Heart and Soul' in 1987 but became a household name after recording 'China in Your Hand' later the same year.

That track was the longest serving number-one of the year after staying on top of the charts for five weeks, and Jaks' manager Andrew MacLeod believes the impact of that is staggering.

He said:

"Whenever you say the name Carol Decker to anybody they always mention 'China in Your Hand' - it was a massive hit.

"The track has appeared on more than 150 compilation albums and I am sure there are not many people who don't possess a copy of it in one form or another.

"Having the opportunity to play host in Jumpin Jaks to someone who has achieved that kind of success is fantastic and we are all looking forward to Carol Decker's appearance.

"We have made it our aim to bring top performers onto the Coventry live entertainment scene and I certainly think someone who achieved world-wide sales of over four million albums qualifies!"

After touring the country as support to world star Bryan Adams, T'pau achieved the rare distinction of a quadruple platinum selling album, 'Bridge of Spies' and also released hit single 'Whenever You Need Me'.

Decker's visit to Coventry is part of the Miller Genuine Live entertainment tour, which brings top names from the music world into the 10-strong Jumpin Jaks chain across the UK.

Tickets for the event can be purchased from the Jumpin Jaks box office at the SkyDome Coventry complex.
