TWO ICONIC ARTISTS PERFORMING SEPARATE SETS….
HAZEL O’CONNOR with Clare Hirst and Sarah Fisher, followed by HUGH CORNWELL (The Stranglers) and full band are set to play in Leeds on the 30th November at the Wardrobe.
Hazel O’Connor and Hugh Cornwell have announced their tour which will include a Leeds date! Hazel will perform songs from her stunning back catalogue and her critically acclaimed recent material whilst Cornwell’s electric performance will include a mix of solo and classic Stranglers catalogue.
Coinciding with the the 2014 release of the new album, Here She Comes, award-winning singer- songwriter Hazel O’Connor teams up with legendary performers – saxophonist Clare Hirst (Bellestars, Communards, David Bowie) and Sarah Fisher (Eurythmics) on keyboards. The superb blend of the three voices and musicianship adds a touch of class to their vibrant performance. Her unforgettable songs from the iconic film Breaking Glass including Eighth Day, Will You, Big Brother and If Only seem even more relevant in our present times.
“They were absolutely fantastic, bringing the entire audience roaring to its feet.” – DAILY TELEGRAPH
