Ticket Exclusive: Al Jarreau's not Moonlighting, he's playing live! US legend to play rare UK dates

Posted: 18th March 2011

The '70s was awash with soul singers and jazz singers, but few combined the two skills quite so adeptly as Al Jarreau, who returns to the UK with his first concerts for the first time since 2007 (when he played at the IndigO2) - and we've got tickets available on pre-sale a full 48 hours before they go on general sale!

His scat-singing style and easy-going smooth soul music has earned him some Grammys, mainly for vocal work and most recently for singing on tracks for George Benson and Jill Scott. Now you have a chance to not only see him perform live in the UK, you can buy tickets now ahead of the General On-sale date of Monday 21st!!

Jarreau will play concerts in London (Royal Festival Hall) on 3rd July, where seats range from £22.50 to £40, Birmingham (Symphony Hall) on 24th July for £34.50 and Manchester (Bridgewater Hall) on the 25th for either £29.50 or £34.50. As a reminder, these are available to buy now, ahead of the public date.

Al's most familiar songs include the Top 10 hit "Moonlighting" from the '80s TV detective show of the same name, as well as "Mornin'" and "Trouble in Paradise" plus the occasional collaboration with jazz musicians such as David Sanborn and Bob James (most notably on their successful "Double Vision"). Demand will be very high for these tickets!
