Marc Almond Autumn 2017 Orchestral tour

Orchestral Arrangements of Iconic Torch Songs & 60s Pop Orchestral Pop from New Album ‘Shadows and Reflections’ 

One of Britain’s most gifted, and unique vocal talents, Marc Almond, has announced an 18 date orchestral tour this Autumn, including Bridlington Spa on Friday 3 November. Marc will be performing songs and hits from his 36 year career to beautiful new orchestral arrangements of iconic torch songs and 60’s Orchestral Pop for which he has become loved for, from his new album Shadows and Reflections.

The extensive UK tour cements the 60th Birthday year for the synth pop pioneer, following his Top 10 album Hits and Pieces earlier this year, and sold out Spring tour including London’s Roundhouse.

The Times commented that Almond’s Roundhouse show had a ‘freewheeling freshness’ to it, for a performer who has been at the forefront of British pop music ever since he found fame in the early 1980s with Soft Cell, before going on to a hugely successful, prolific and diverse solo career that has seen him sell over 30 million records worldwide.

‘A Musician who has never stood still’ according to The Observer, Marc Almond found fame in the early 1980s as one half of the pioneering synth-pop duo Soft Cell, and has had a hugely successful, prolific and diverse solo career that has seen him sell over 30 million records worldwide, including his much-revered interpretations of Jacques Brel songs, as well as his own self-penned pieces.

Q Magazine recently referred to Marc Almond as ‘one of pop’s greatest voices’, and he has also collaborated many other legendary figures in music, including diverse artists such as Gene Pitney, Tony Visconti, Burt Bacharach, Jools Holland, Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson and Siouxsie Sioux.

Tickets go on general sale Friday 19 May, 10am. Tickets cost from £24.50 plus booking fee. For more info to go bridspa.com
