Ronan Keating , Status Quo and 10CC fans are flocking to the Falkirk Stadium for the Rock the Stadium concerts this weekend. Ronan Keating is the Irish singer and song writer who has combined single and album sales in excess of 45 million, holds the Guinness book of records for the amazing total of 30 consecutive Top Ten UK singles and has played live in over 50 countries, and this summer will play for the first time in Central Scotland at the home of Falkirk FC.

“I am really excited to be performing at the Falkirk Stadium this summer and love playing outdoors in these great venues. What makes it more exciting and something magical is playing to a Scottish audience. I am looking forward to playing with my band and singing my hits as well as some of new songs from my new CD’ Fires.”

Status Quo are the veteran rockers who have been making hits since the sixties. Rick Parfitt and Francis Rossi remain the core members of the band. They have a new single and album out which they premiered on the BBC’s One Show last week.
10cc hit their peak in the 1970s with I’m not in love and Wakll Street . The band initially consisted of four musicians—Graham Gouldman, Eric Stewart, Kevin Godley, and Lol Creme—who had written and recorded together for some three years, before assuming the “10cc” name in 1972.
10cc consisted of two strong songwriting teams, one ‘commercial’ and one ‘artistic’, but both teams injected sharp wit into lyrically dextrous and musically varied songs. Stewart and Gouldman were predominantly pop-song-writers, who created most of the band’s most commercial songs. Godley and Creme were the predominantly experimental half of 10cc, featuring an Art School sensibility who graduated to video production.
