Soul legend Alexander O’Neal is bringing his Resurrected Tour to Hull City Hall on Sunday, April 8 accompanied by a live nine-piece band.
As well as performing his greatest hits, Alexander will be play tracks from his new album of the same name – his first in 15 years – due for release in 2018.
American born, Alexander has created a cult appreciation across the globe. His back catalogue includes singles from the UK and Billboard top tens as well as a triple platinum selling album and ever expanding discography.
“I can’t tell you how excited I am about this fantastic UK tour in April, particularly as it finishes at the wonderful London Palladium, a venue that a lot of my idols in music have performed at, including the legendary Marvin Gaye.
“Before we even get there, however, we are going to be performing at some of the finest venues in the country in major cities around the UK and I promise you that me and my fantastic band will leave it all out there for my wonderful fans and give you all the hits you love to hear. Maybe one or two new ones too.
“It’s gonna be a party and I can’t wait to see you all!”.
Signed by Prince back in the early days as part of The Time, Alexander’s journey in and out of various band formations propelled him to be the solo artist he is best known as today.
With chart smash Criticize filling up dance floors across the world 30 years after its release, his sound has transcended generations.
His heart still firmly in the music industry and possessing a loyalty to the thousands that still buy his records, Alexander’s passion to keep his sound alive is ever present.
He is currently in the studio re-recording his most famous album, the million selling smash Hearsay, which is due for release in time for Christmas.
Hearsay commenced his special relationship with the UK, where he still holds the record for an African-American performer selling out six straight nights at Wembley Arena.
