Texas announce forest reunion gig
Texas have announced their first live show after a break of more than two years.
Following a short hiatus, in which frontwoman Sharleen Spiteri focused on her solo career, the group - famous for hits like I Don't Want A Lover, Say What You Want and In Our Lifetime - will reunite to perform at Westonbirt Arboretum on July 17.
"I love forests, they are a national treasure - we can't wait to perform all our hits at Westonbirt Arboretum this summer," Sharleen said.
A new Texas album is planned for release this year.
Status Quo have also announced a forest date. The legendary rockers will play Thetford Forest on June 9.
Frontman Francis Rossi said: "Forestry Commission Live Music is a fantastic annual event that has become a statutory part of the UK's live music calendar. We love to bag a trip to the woods each year.
"We are pleased to make Thetford part of our touring plans for 2011 particularly as we had a great gig performing to a capacity crowd last time we were there."
Tickets for both gigs will be available from 9am on February 11 from the Forestry Commission box office.
