We are Officially 10 Years Old Today!

We Are Officially 10 Years Old Today!!

It all began with an idea for a Gareth Gates fansite run exclusively by fans, way back in 2004.

The idea was worked on, the site paid for, rules established and with all the i’s dotted and the t’s crossed, on 13/11/04, it was announced we were open for business.

With reports from Asia, China, USA, Europe and UK Snowdrop, the team and registered users have worked hard to make this site as interesting as possible, bringing Gareth news fresh off the press (in some cases ahead of the press)!

We have together celebrated Gareth’s voice, his awards, his tours, appearances and all things Gareth. We’ve commiserated too, on the not so good times (thankfully few in number).

This site has been responsible for bringing together many Gareth fans, uniting at concerts and appearances and lots of true friendships formed. (Gareth will never know of the shared train journeys, nights in bus stations and overcrowded hotel rooms)!

We sadly remember the loss of dedicated fans too- Gareth’s Hot Chick (Nicola), Pepper(Anita), her daughter Sweetie Pie (Tracey) and Babygates (Ruth).

We thank Gareth for all his hard work, contuining to entertain us and those who have contributed to make this site a special place to be a Gareth Gates fan.

(We must also thank our patient other halves, children and friends who have at times been neglected, in favour of many an hour spent posting on GPG)

Here’s to the next 10 years and a reminder of the last ten!

All in all, we loved taking a trip down memory lane and each and every band member looked like they had an absolute blast on that stage. Good job, guys!

Gareth ending each show with a great performance of Spirit In The Sky

Thanks for a great tour Guys and now looking forward to Gareth’s SOLO Tour later this month.
