It is with an immense amount of sadness that we have to announce the passing of Greta Deberitz.

Greta was one of Smokie's long standing and dedicated fans who for many years organised and ran the Smokie Fanclub from Norway.

We recognize that Greta brought many fans together, not just in Norway but from many countries around the world and kept them informed of news a long time before the internet came along.

We know that Greta will be sadly missed by Smokie fans far and wide.

Smokie band members would like to send our deepest condolences to the Deberitz Family.

RIP Greta.


Last night in Melbourne there was a most emotional reunion for Smokie, when we found out that original lead guitarist Alan Silson was in the audience.

We made sure that we got Alan backstage after the show.
A few laughs and a few tears as you'd expect, but we were all delighted to see Alan.

We are well aware that past members are always in the thoughts of our loyal fans and this is one post that we are so happy to share with you all.

One thing that we have vowed to do, is stay in touch with Alan, he informs us that he is still playing guitar and he was in great spirits!


Today, Smokie play The Metro in Sydney.
The tour so far has been a great success and when the band land in Melbourne tomorrow they'll be halfway through their Australian tour dates.

The "Stand Out" gig so far according to band members would have to be the stand up show at "The Tivoli" in sunny Brisbane, a city all band members seem to show  a great fondness for!

Those of you who have a Facebook account, please follow the Smokie page as well as the Mick McConnell page for some tour updates and some personal photos!

Next stop for the guys is Melbourne!
