'An Evening With Howard Jones...' Are you going?

THE one and only Howard Jones is heading to Liverpool's Epstein, as part of his 2016 UK Tour, on Friday, 12 February 2016 and tickets are selling fast. An Evening With Howard Jones Solo (The Songs, The Piano and The Stories) will be one of 2016 top shows, not to be missed in Liverpool and more information can be found online on his official website, along with his Facebook and Twitter accounts.

If you did not already know... It was in 1983 that Howard Jones 1st burst upon the contemporary music scene with his very English song writing, pioneering synthesizers and thought provoking lyrics. He set out his manifesto in his very 1st single entitled:- 'New Song'. The lyrics called on the listener to challenge their preconceived ideas, to see both sides and 'throw off your mental chains'. New Song was recently used in a pivotal scene in 'Breaking Bad' where Aaron Paul's character Jessie Pinkman questions if he wants to:- 'play by the rules'. New Song peaked at number 3 in the UK singles charts. Along with 'New Song', The 1st 2 albums:- 'Humans Lib' and 'Dream into Action', brought Howard a host of hits including:- 'Things Can Only Get Better', 'What is Love?', 'Pearl In The Shell', 'Like to Get To know You Well', 'Hide And Seek' (performed at Live Aid), 'Look Mama' and not forgetting 'No One Is To Blame', which reached No.1 in the US.

If that was not to big an achievement for you, well, Howard has now sold over 8 million albums across the globe and is one of a select group of British artists who have comprehensively 'broken America'.

Howard Jones solo shows are an intimate trip through Howard's 30 year music career. Many of his best known songs were composed on his favourite instrument; the piano. Howard shares behind the scenes stories and reveals the inspiration behind the songs in these rare acoustic shows.

Casting call for new 'Make Under' Channel 5 TV show

A brand new  Channel 5 TV series called:- '100% Hotter' is about to be filmed and is currently casting.  The show is advertised as a make-under show and the Assistant Producer, of this new TV series, Samantha Heeler has spoken to us about it. She said that:- "This show is looking at helping fashion disasters to get themselves looking hot again.  We are looking for addicted to fake Tan and falsies.... People who wear way to much make up on all the time... Have a look that's most say is more freak than chic...  A style that is so OTT that is says OMG!"   So, readers, if you think you are or know someone who is fitting that description, they want to hear from you!  We are considering contacting them about our Editor, but he will probably sack us... Anyway,  Samantha added... "Were looking for people with standout shocking style or a truly extreme look for a brand new make under show.  On this show we are taking extreme style and fashion disasters.  Ones that really stand out!  If we can help them we will be handing them over to our stylists and make up artists.  They will then do their stuff to make them '100% Hotter'. If accepted you will be completely restyled from head to toe by our stylists. Anyone who is interested should apply now...  Or if you know someone yourself, that you feel should be nominated, please let us know!  We stress that you must be over 18 to take part and living in the UK. More information can be found on our website, NakedEntentainment.TV"   To apply or to nominate a friend for a new look, email them today.  To keep up to date on the castings you can follow them on Facebook and also on Twitter.
