The Irish Village and Jumeirah Creekside Hotel brings you Live on the Lake presents Pretenders with Heather Small & Aswad on Thursday 26 October 2017.

Close to celebrating their 40th anniversary in the world of Rock, Pretenders have recently released their tenth studio album, 'Alone' and finished touring the US and Europe with the legendary Stevie Nicks. 

Appearing on the same stage will be M People's Heather Small and British reggae group Aswad.


Pretenders
Pretenders were formed in 1978 with singer Chrissie Hynde on vocals, Pete Farndon on bass, James Honeyman-Scott on guitar and Martin Chambers on drums.

They released two LPs, 'Pretenders' which charted at number one in the UK and number nine in the States;  and 'Pretenders II', and one EP, Extended Play.

The band enjoyed worldwide chart success with singles including 'Stop Your Sobbing', 'Kid', 'Brass In Pocket', 'Talk of The Town' and 'I Go To Sleep'. The band was constantly on the road and enjoyed heavy MTV rotation.

In 1982 they were dealt a difficult year: a parting of ways with Pete Farndon being swiftly followed by the death of James Honeyman-Scott. Pete’s death came a year later.

Subsequently the band’s line-up remained fluid and the band went on to release the albums 'Learning to Crawl', 'Get Close' and 'Packed!' between 1984 and 1990.

After a four year hiatus came the band’s next release 'Last of the Independents', followed in 1995 by 'Isle of View', a live acoustic album recorded over two nights in London with the Duke String Quartet.

1999 saw the release of 'Viva El Amor', the last album to be released on longtime label Warner Records, and their next album 'Loose Screw' was released on Artemis Records in 2002.

Neil Young inducted the Pretenders into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005, and their next release, 'Break Up The Concrete', came in 2008.

Their tenth studio album, 'Alone', was originally intended as a Chrissie Hynde solo album and released in October 2016 achieving critical acclaim.

The band have toured the world and performed in front of over four million people and continue to play together.

Heather Small (M People)
Growing up in 70's Britain and not wanting to be stereotyped or treated differently, Heather Small knew that she wanted to make something of herself.

Even though Heather battled with shyness and severe nerves, she joined her first band Hot!House who released two albums in the late 80's.

As Part of M People, hits such as 'Moving On Up', 'One Night In Heaven' and 'Search For The Hero' and albums like Elegant Slumming, Bizarre Fruit and Fresco achieving massive worldwide success,

Heather became one of the seminal British voices of the 1990s, with the band winning the Best British Dance Act Award at the Brits in 1994 and 1995, as well as the Mercury Music Prize for Elegant Slumming.


Heather has since had great successes with two solo albums – the title track of her 'Proud' album has gone on to become the soundtrack to a whole host of very special events including London's successful 2012 Olympic bid, the 60th anniversary of VE Day in Trafalgar Square, the launch of Queen Mary 2, the Tsunami Relief Concert, England's victory at the Rugby World Cup celebrations, and the official ceremony marking the handover of the Olympic Games from Beijing to London.

And when Oprah Winfrey was looking for a song to sum up the work she'd been striving to achieve over her twenty-year career, she got in touch with Heather, who somehow managed to squeeze in a trip across the Atlantic to perform on the show right in the middle of her last UK tour with M People ('If Oprah calls, you go!' she laughs, adding that the first lady of chat was 'very sweet to me').

Aswad
Aswad
is a long-lasting British reggae group, noted for adding strong R&B and soul influences to the reggae sound. They have been performing since the mid-1970s, having released a total of 21 albums.

In 1988, Aswad earned international acclaim with their reggae version of 'Don't Turn Around', which sailed to the number one slot in the UK Charts.


In 1994, Aswad captured a host of new fans with the release of the album Rise & Shine, a recording which saw the band's first Grammy nomination for Best Reggae Album of the Year. A major hit in the UK and Japan, the album also gave the band another number one hit with the now famous summer reggae anthem ‘Shine.’
