THE UK’s biggest-selling artist of the 80s, Shakin’ Stevens is back at St David’s Hall performing his biggest tunes on Sunday 3 March.
With 33 hit singles and four UK No.1s to his name as well as global chart-toppers, the Cardiff singer returns to his hometown for Greatest Hits and More!
Since releasing his first album A Legend in 1970, Shaky has achieved huge popularity across the world. His last release in 2016, Echoes of Our Times, was inspired by Shaky’s research into his family history and uncovered tales of wartime heroics, salvationists and strife in the copper mines of Cornwall. Influenced by blues, folk and Americana as well as his trademark rocking style, it was one of the most surprising and acclaimed albums of the year.
This exciting UK tour sees the Platinum-selling artist singing newer material, hidden gems, cover versions and huge fan favourites Oh Julie, Hot Dog and This Ole House.
Shaky said: “I’ve been going through my catalogue of songs in preparation for the tour, and re-introducing myself to the many and varied styles of music I’ve recorded during my solo career. From country rock to Cajun, classic rock to Latin, and blues to Americana I’ve had the pleasure of re-discovering the ‘jewels’ from my repertoire that are so well-liked.
“Of course there’ll be hits and some songs that I haven’t performed live on stage for a decade or two….so some surprises! I’ve also included well-known songs from other artists whose work I admire, together with album tracks and newer songs, bringing it right up to date! I can’t wait to get back on the road and to have a great time with the audiences!”
