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!


"Not a day goes by where we don't think of Terry, both on and off stage"

Today the 16th December 2022, marks one year exactly since the passing of not just a band member, but a friend and brother in arms, with whom we spent many years touring the world and sharing the ups' and downs' that this business has thrown at us in our time together 

We are currently in South Africa and last night we played Cape Town. A place that Terry loved!

Rest In Peace El Tel ........ We miss you!



Due to public demand.
A second concert has been added in Jo'Burg on December 18th 2022
Info at your usual ticket outlet!

Many of you, have been asking who has been playing bass for Smokie the last few weeks?
That guy is Jon Clifford Cox!

However; last night in Krakow, Poland, was Jon's farewell to his stint in Smokie, before Luke returns once again.

Smokie would like to thank Jon for his enthusiasm, his professionalism and the general great attitude he has brought to the the band both on and off stage.
We shall miss Jon's eclectic taste in music that has been blasting out in our dressing rooms in the last weeks.

Jon has an impressive CV and he has played with the likes of the great Albert Lee.

We wish Jon all the luck in the world, we know he has impressed many on the shows he has done, and we shall hopefully remain friends for a long time to come!

Go get 'em Jon!



On Friday the 21st January, Smokie and its entire community worldwide said our final goodbye to Terry.

Steve, Martin and Mick now feel its the right time to make a statement…………

The passing of a band member gives us a great deal to think about.

It is with immeasurable grief we acknowledge that Terry is no longer with us.

Considering the feelings of Terrys family, we also take into account the feelings of our fans worldwide and take onboard some of their wishes.

At this moment in time, and with the blessing of Lisa and Holly, Terrys daughters,
we feel that the right thing to do Is to be honourable in our business dealings (something we are well known for in the music business) with promoters, theatres and various venues that have supported us in the past. It is important that we protect our integrity by honouring contracts and commitments until the end of this year 2022.

During the year, we shall have plenty of opportunities to talk to fans and get their feelings on what they would like to see happen with Smokie. Its also extremely important to the remaining band members to uphold the memory of our brother and best friend Terry.

So, along with our new singer Pete Lincoln and Luke Bullard on bass duties, we remain grateful and optimistic.

We shall make a promise to promoters, fans, and all concert goers who currently hold tickets for postponed concerts, that  “We shall bring you a Smokie concert that you will not only enjoy, but certainly remember”

We will also work hard to make sure that we perform in a manner that Terry would be proud.

Sadly, we continue to live and work in strange times, with  uncertainty still present.
However,  we shall keep you informe ...
