Following the release of last year’s acclaimed Top 10 album Soulsville, singer songwriter and actress Beverley Knight announces a new UK Tour for summer 2017.
Following a string of sold out gigs in the spring of 2016, and having completed a 6 month run in the smash hit West End musical The Bodyguard in January, Beverley is taking to the road again in her own right in June 2017.
Tickets on general sale 10am Friday 27 January; all dates and tickets can be found here.
Recorded early last year at Royal Studios in Memphis, Soulsville celebrates the music, sounds and legacy of Memphis and was produced by Grammy nominated Justin Stanley (Prince, Beck); it features original material co –written by Knight, alongside a handful of classic Memphis covers. Watch a mini-documentary on the making of the album here.
The new tour will see her perform favourite tracks from this latest hit album, including Knight’s stunning version of the Ann Peebles classic ‘I Can’t Stand The Rain‘ as well as fan favourites spanning her recording career, with a nod to her newer role as leading lady of the West End.
Triple Mobo winner and multiple Brit nominee Knight commented “Last year was so full of professional highlights – releasing my 8th studio album Soulsville and performing again in the West End to name but two. My first love is appearing on stage as myself and I can’t wait to give it my all again on the I ♥ Soulsville Tour.”
