2022 for Smokie was three things.
It was sad, it was hard work, but at the same time extremely rewarding.
After the passing of Terry, we had an obligation to many promoters and fans alike.
Most of our concerts were the one's that were rebooked or moved after Covid.
We didn't know how any of the gigs would be? or how fans would feel seeing the band without Terry present.
It was a tough year, because we literally seemed to be traveling everywhere, and many gigs were crammed in to accommodate Promoters, venues and the tickets for which fans had bought two years earlier.
It was strange without Terry, but we had made the decision to carry on and hopefully preserve the memory of Terry in the best way we could; playing live and bringing our stage performance to Europe and beyond.
Smokie have just completed out 12th Tour of South Africa, a milestone in itself.
Smokie wishes everyone a "Happy and Prosperous New Year" and we say a very simple "Thank You" for making our job far easier in what was a very tough year for all of us.
We would like to thank the various members of our road crew, Tour managers and everyone who works so hard to bring it all together!
We look forward to seeing you in 2023!...
