Billy Ocean with Special Guests - Vivary Park, Taunton

Taunton’s Vivary Park is set to host a three-evening outdoor music event next summer, with organisers announcing the Saturday night headline act.

The Trinidad-born English recording artist, Billy Ocean, who had a string of internationally acclaimed hits in the 1970s and 1980s will be the main attraction

on Saturday 14th July 2018 at Live in Somerset’s Party in the Park.

Billy Ocean has sold over 30 million records to date, including a host of gold and platinum records across the world – he hit the number one spot worldwide on numerous occasions.

The artist and songwriter who is best known for hits including Love Really Hurts Without You; Stop Me; and Love on Delivery, will be joined by special guests Hot Chocolate and The Real Thing.

Billy Ocean’s special guests Hot Chocolate, one of the UK’s most successful bands from the 1970s, will entertain fans with their distinctive sounds and classic hits, including: You Sexy Thing and Every 1's a Winner, when they perform at Live in Somerset’s Party in the Park.

The Real Thing also joins the Saturday night line-up. Celebrating an incredible 40 years in the music business, three original vocalists – Chris and Eddie Amoo and Dave Smith – will perform with their own five piece band in a performance that will include You to Me Are Everything; Can’t Get By Without You and Feel the Force.

More special guests will be announced shortly.

Billy Ocean is looking forward to performing at Party in the Park in Taunton. He said:

“I love performing and sharing my hits with fans - I really hope they can join me for a night of live music under the stars in Taunton.”
