Belinda Carlisle follows the Sun with spring 2014 UK tour
Posted: 25th July 2013
One of the Eighties' biggest-selling female performers returns with new album, hits and more, tickets on sale now
In the States, Belinda Carlisle is something of an icon. Having already sold several million records in perky pop outfit The Go-Gos (key songs - "We Got The Beat" and "Our Lips Are Sealed", the latter covered by Terry Hall's Fun Boy Three), the singer embarked on a hugely-successful solo career that grew slowly after her 1985 debut-album and mushroomed with the follow-up "Heaven On Earth", two years on. She's something of an icon in the UK as well...
Recently, her entire back catalogue of albums from "Heaven...." to 1996's "A Woman and a Man", via the massive "Runaway Horses" set, were reissued here in multi-disc formats, alongside a Stateside greatest hits collection called "Icon" which includes the catchy new song, "Sun". Back over here, you can expect a new DVD/CD package entitled "Live from Metropolis Studios", recorded at the London studio of the same name in front an intimate audience.
With all of this product coming out, you'd be forgiven for thinking that live headline shows are a thing of the past for Belinda Carlisle. You've got to be kidding, right?
In 2014, she'll be performing a handful of key shows around the UK. First stop is Birmingham on 14th May, followed by Newcastle, Manchester and London's IndigO2 on the 17th.
Tickets are on sale now, priced from £29.50 upwards. We're not joking when we predict a sell-out.
Her longevity continues - she's a regular participant of '80s tours and events such as Rewind (in Henley) and Rewind Scotland - the '80s Festival 2013 (she's there on Sunday 28th July) and continues to ship an inordinate amount of CDs and downloads, not just in Britain but around the world. And hey, if Orbital found time to drop her "Heaven Is a Place On Earth" tune into the middle of their pumping sets during the '90s, it's good enough for me and millions of others.
