One of Britain’s most gifted, and unique vocal talents, Marc Almond, has announced a 17-date orchestral tour this Autumn, performing songs and hits from his 36-year career to beautiful new orchestral arrangements of his own hits, iconic torch songs, and 60’s Orchestral Pop for which he has become loved for, from his new album Shadows and Reflections. This will include songs by artists such as Billy Fury, David Bowie, Burt Bacharach, and more.
The extensive UK tour, starting on 3rd October at London’s Royal Festival Hall, cements the 60th Birthday year for the synth pop pioneer, following his Top 10 album Hits and Pieces earlier this year, and sold out Spring tour including London’s Roundhouse.
Marc Almond found fame in the early 1980s as one half of the pioneering synth-pop duo Soft Cell, and has had a hugely successful, prolific and diverse solo career that has seen him sell over 30 million records worldwide, including his much-revered interpretations of Jacques Brel songs, as well as his own self-penned pieces.
He has also collaborated many other legendary figures in music, including diverse artists such as Gene Pitney, Tony Visconti, Burt Bacharach, Jools Holland, Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson and Siouxsie Sioux.
