BONEY M, the 70’s pop group behind smash hits such as Rivers of Babylon and Daddy Cool, are due to perform in Almeria city tonight (Friday) at 9pm.
The group are scheduled to hit the stage of the Maestro Padilla auditorium later this evening. Tickets are reportedly still available for the show but they are selling fast.
The German band is set to be fronted by Sheyla Bonnick, one of its original singers from its early days in the mid 1970’s.
Boney M released their first single Baby Do You Wanna Bump in December 1974.
The song, written by group founder Frank Farian (real name Franz Reuther) went on to chart in the Netherlands and Belgium.
Farian then drafted in Maizie Williams, Bobby Farrel, Marcia Barrett and Liz Mitchell to make up the group’s line up.
Their first album, Take the Heat off Me, was released in 1976.
This was followed by the release of the single Daddy Cool which quickly went to number one in the German and British charts.
The albums Love for Sale, Nightflight to Venus and Oceans of Fantasy followed during the rest of the 1970’s, with the group continuing to top the charts.
The group’s last album, Eye Dance, was released in 1985. Former members of the group have toured under the Boney M name since the 2000’s.
