£60 & £70
Sir Cliff Richard’s upcoming, eagerly awaited tour in October will now feature plenty of Cliff’s own lifetime’s worth of hits as well as material from his new Soul Duets album SOULICIOUS.
''I'm looking forward to presenting some great artists, some of who sang with me on my CD and just as excited at the prospect of performing a lot of my biggest hits. My fans bought them and I want to sing them!!'' Cliff said.
Lamont Dozier, Freda Payne, Marilyn McCoo/Billy Davis Jnr, and Percy Sledge are all now confirmed as performing some of their own hits and then singing their recent duets with Cliff from the SOULICIOUS album which is released on Monday 17th October 2011.
James Ingram joins the line-up of US guests and Britain’s own Jaki Graham completes the final guest line-up, both will be performing hits of their own in addition to duetting with Cliff on a track from the Soulicious album.
"I want to present a balanced show of the old favourites and this terrific group of singers helping me to perform songs I recently recorded in America". Cliff added “being on the road is going to be fun and they will be singing the songs that made them such great soul legends"
Celebrating his 53rd anniversary in the music business this year, Cliff Richard is indisputably Britain’s all-time greatest hit-maker – the ultimate pop star! No other UK band or solo artist is even close to equalling his 123 single hits, or can claim to have occupied a place in our charts for the equivalent of over 20 years! Highlights of this remarkable career are too numerous to mention, but successful films, musicals, concert tours and television shows have all contributed to the Cliff Richard legend.
Cliff’s knighthood, bestowed in the 1995 Birthday Honours for his tireless charity work, was the first such to be given to a pop star. His practical support of so many good causes reflects the reality of his deep Christian commitment, which began in the mid-1960’s, and which, despite the media critics who claimed it was a passing fad or a publicity gimmick, has been the motivating force in his life ever since.
