Formed in Glasgow by singer Sharleen Spiteri and bassist Johnny McElhone, their debut single, ‘I Don’t Want A Lover’ brought Texas to the world’s attention with a global hit in 1989 beginning the Scottish band’s illustrious career. Texas became mainstays of the UK charts with a raft of hits such as ‘Say What You Want’, ‘Halo’, ‘Black Eyed Boy’, ‘In Our Lifetime’, ‘Summer Son’, ‘In Demand’, ‘Inner Smile’, ‘Getaway’ and ‘Sleep’. Classic albums such as ‘Southside’, ‘White On Blonde’ and ‘The Hush’ ensured their presence among multi-million-selling artists and the journey continues with the 2021 release of their top 3 album ‘Hi’.
Commenting on the show, Sharleen Spiteri for Texas said “We last played a Forest Live show in 2011 so for us it’s a welcome return to be performing our hits in such a beautiful setting. We hope to see you there.”
Very special guest, Sam Ryder will also be performing on the night.
