WE'VE only just become to tell you about The Carpenters Experience at The Artrix in Bromyard.

But the good news for easy listening fans is, the tribute show will comes to the venue as soon as September 18.

A spokesman said: "When we were young we’d listen to the radio, waiting for our favourite songs. Now they’re back again, like a long-lost friend, all the song we loved so well.

"The UK's leading Carpenters show, featuring the amazing voice of Maggie Nestor and eight top-class musicians, captures the sights and sounds of the amazing talents of Richard and Karen Carpenter.

"Karen’s silky contralto is combined with Richard’s delightful piano and seamless harmonies in this big production that brings Close to You, We've only Just Begun, Top of the World, Rainy Days and Mondays, Solitaire, Goodbye to Love, Please Mr Postman, For All We Know, Only Yesterday and dozens more classic songs to the stage."

The Carpenters were a 1970s supergroup, or rather a super duo comprising of brother and sister, and the hits kept coming.

But with great success came tragedy.

A stray comment about her becoming "chubby" led to Karen Carpenter developing eating disorder anorexia nervosa, which was little-known at the time.

She battled bravely with the disorder but died aged 32 from heart failure, caused by complications related to her illness.

Today, her resonant voice ranks her high in the all-time list of greatest female vocalists.
