A YEAR TO VIEW

1984 was to be an eventful year. Bucks Fizz toured the UK again on a 7 week sell out tour from 3rd May to the 23rd June travelling up and down the country with support band GI Orange. Fan club membership was now just under 10,000.
The group had yet another top twenty hit with 'Talking In Your Sleep'. This prompted yet more television appearances including Miss United Kingdom, Top Of The Pops and the Children's Royal Variety Performance in the presence of HRH Princess Anne. In the same year Cheryl also presented Boy George with an award at the Rock & Pop Awards.
Golden Days was the next release and this was closely followed by their critically acclaimed forth studio album, 'I Hear Talk'. The title track was also a big hit as a single in the UK and a surprise club hit in America. This also prompted some extra live sell out shows at the end of the year.
Some members of the group also had solo success this year as Cheryl co-presented the TV show 'How Dare You', Jay released her very own exercise album and Bobby released his own single 'Big Deal' the theme tune from the show of the same name.
Fate was to deal the group a devastating blow this year. Whilst in a mini tour in December there was a horrific coach crash which resulted in the serious injury of Mike Nolan. Fortunately Mike did make a remarkable recovery and the story was allowed to continue for many more years.
