The Three Degrees.
Weston-super-Mare’s Grand Pier is to host the Three Degrees 50th Anniversary Tour concert on Friday 5th July 2013.
The Three Degrees formed in 1963 in Philadephia. Over the years the trio has changed but their most successful line-up included Valerie Holiday, Helen Scott and Shelia Ferguson. That line-up performed for Prince Charles at his 30th birthday party and attended the pre-wedding party before his marriage to Lady Diana Spencer.
The line-up that will play the concert on the Grand Pier will be Helen Scott who joined the group in 1963, Valerie Holiday, who joined the group in 1967 and former Lady of the Supremes, who is a relatively new addition, Freddie Pool.
The Three Degrees 1974 single “When Will I See You Again?” was a huge international hit, peaking at Number Two in the US and topping the UK Singles Chart.
Grand Pier owner Kerry Michael said: “I am absolutely delighted the Three Degrees have agreed to return to the Grand Pier after their successful Debut in 2011. I always envisaged the Grand Pier becoming a major venue in the South West and I am very excited that we have established ourselves as a succesful venue and are attracting world-class acts to perform here”.
“We are starting to bring some really big names to Weston-super-Mare. The Grand Pier is now so much more than a family entertainment centre. It is a major visitor attraction that will bring visitors and concert-goers to the town in the daytime and evening throughout the year”.
