10CC return to the Princess Theatre, Torquay next Tuesday night.
The occasion is a date on the band's 40th anniversary UK tour, and founding member Graham Gouldman said: "It's hard to believe it's 40 years since 10cc was born in Strawberry Studios in Stockport.
"I'm immensely proud of all we have achieved. As long as the fans want to hear the songs played live I'll be happy to oblige."
10cc earned critical respect and public acclaim for such singles as Donna (1972), Rubber Bullets (1973), The Dean and I (1973) and Wall Street Shuffle (1974), and you can expect to hear all these and many more at the Princess.
The live line-up, together now for 10 years, features Graham Gouldman (vocals, bass, guitar), Rick Fenn (lead guitar, vocals), Paul Burgess (drums, vocals), Mick Wilson (percussion, guitar, vocals) and Mike Stevens (keyboards, guitar, sax, vocals).
"The band, as it stands now, is absolutely fantastic. And of course our main strength and what we're selling is the songs, nothing else," said Gouldman.
"This is as near as you're ever going to get to hearing the perfect 10cc. Hit after hit after hit. It's relentless. We show no mercy."
