The Frontmen, three musicians from the UK who have all spent time fronting three of the biggest bands of the '70s - 10cc, The Hollies and The Sweet - are currently performing in New Zealand.
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.
