10cc can still be heard on classic rock stations across America but the band hasn't played in the States since 1978. That's about to change.

10cc is set to play at The Concert Hall in New York City, on Friday, July 13, as part of a two-date flying visit to North America. The other show is a headline spot at Ottawa BluesFest in Canada.

Over their 40-year career, 10cc has sold over 30 million albums worldwide. "Things We Do For Love" has been played over 3.5 million times on US radio. "I'm Not In Love" (played more than 5 million times on US radio) has been recorded by The Pretenders (for the film Indecent Proposal), Will To Power, Peggy Lee, Richie Havens, Fun Lovin' Criminals, and most recently The Flaming Lips.

Led by co-founding Graham Gouldman, the current 10cc line-up has been together for 10 years and recently toured Australia, Japan and Europe – even visiting Iceland.

In addition to a full 90-minute set of 10cc hits, audiences will be treated to an acoustic performance featuring some of the hit songs Gouldman has written for other artistes, such as For Your Love, and Heart Full of Soul, (for The Yardbirds), Bus Stop and Look Through Any Window (The Hollies), Listen People and No Milk Today (Herman's Hermits), Pamela, Pamela (Wayne Fontana) and Tallyman for Jeff Beck.

As a part of the Wax duo with the late Andrew Gold, Gouldman also had hits with Right Between The Eyes and Bridge To You Heart. Alongside his long history of songwriting credits, Gouldman also produced albums for The Ramones and Neil Sedaka.

10cc was originally comprised of Graham Gouldman, Eric Stewart, Kevin Godley and Lol Crθme. The current live touring band is: Graham Gouldman (vocals, guitar, bass), Rick Fenn (guitars, vocals, bass), Paul Burgess (drums, percussion), Mick Wilson (vocals, guitars, keyboards, percussion), Mike Stevens (keyboards, guitar, sax, bass, vocals). Paul has worked with 10cc from the beginning and Rick joined the live band in the mid-'70s.
