Seven Sharp asked the band to pretend to be buskers at Britomart train station in Auckland – and, surprisingly, they said yes.

The Frontmen weren’t the original singers of the supergroups, but they all fronted the groups or were hand-picked to replace the singers.

After their performance, the Frontmen regrouped to discuss what they could do better. Former The Hollies frontman Peter Howarth suggested “getting a bit of juggling in”, as well as some fire.

“It is hard to know which ones to leave out when you’re putting a set list together,” former The Sweet frontman Pete Lincoln said.

“It’s a nice problem to have, you know? It’s not what you put in. it’s what you leave out. That’s what we have trouble with – leaving things out,” former 10cc singer Mick Wilson added.

The Frontmen made $5 before tax from their busking efforts.

The band will be performing in Palmerston North on Saturday and the Opera House in Wellington on Sunday.
