Foster and Allen will perform at Berwick Maltings

Having sold almost 20 million albums worldwide, Mick Foster and Tony Allen will be supporting the album with an 18-date Scottish tour this spring, as Scotland is one of their strongest selling and performing regions.

They will be coming over the border to Berwick Maltings on Thursday, March 23, as part of that tour.

Since the start of this millennium, Mick Foster and Tony Allen have sold almost one-and-a-half million units in the UK.

Their new collection, The Gold Collection, is a 60-track offering on a three-CD set, and includes their recent single Mrs Brown’s Boys, Galway Girl, and their duet with Coronation Street favourite Shayne Ward, along with more than 20 songs and medleys that have not been available for at least a dozen years, some of them much longer.

The Gold Collection really does go back into Foster and Allen’s deep and rich catalogue, delivering some of those long-forgotten recordings that made the duo such household names during the 1980s and 1990s.

In 2016, Foster and Allen showed no sign of slowing down by undertaking a 67-date touring commitment across the UK and Ireland. And 29 of those dates were for a very successful trip in Australia.

Foster and Allen’s style and easy listening sound remains as fresh and exciting as it always has been.

Tony Allen said: “We really enjoy the business we are in, and especially the live concerts.”
