Robie E. G. played at Wests Cardiff to a sold out audience 2 years ago, before his big crash. And many of those loyal fans came again yesterday.
They performed "Behind The #1 Hits" Show, which consists of #1 Hits that Robie produced and performed himself (including 55 Days At Peking, Si Senor, Jezebel, plus: When You're Not Near, Whiplash, and others)....
And selected #1 Hits that Robie produced for Marcia Hines, Air Supply, Daddy Cool, Tommy Emmanuel, Rick Springfield, Colleen Hewett, Hush, and some of their Top 10s.
Playing with him were what he calls the Rockin The Country Band - featuring several top-tier musicians/singers who have played with him numerous times during the past 3 years.
Nicki Gillis, who sings some of Marcia's #1 hits in the show, including You, and I Just Don't Know What to do With Myself, plus Robie's first Rick Springfield Hit - Speak To the Sky, and Colleen Hewett's #1 - Dreaming My Dreams With You. Nicki is a great singer with #1 and Top 10 Hits of her own in the U.K and Australia.
