There are some songs which are so iconic that we only have to hear the first beat and we are right back to the first time we hear them. Back To Life is without doubt one of those and if ever a tune was to sum up the late 80s then this is it.
Following the success of their shows last year, iconic British band SOUL II SOUL will take their acclaimed Club Classics tour back on the road, paying tribute to their legendary debut album, ‘Club Classics Vol 1’. Now, we know the gig is a long way off, we get that, but trust us when we tell you, once word gets out, this once is a sell out.
The double Grammy Award winning and five-time Brit Award nominated band will play 15 dates in the UK in October and November, including a date at London’s Royal Albert Hall, featuring a stunning production and we get to see them, on that tour, in Cardiff.
With huge hits including ‘KEEP ON MOVIN’ (which sold over a million copies in the US alone) and the UK number one single ‘Back To Life (However Do You Want Me)’, Soul II Soul progressed from being one of the leaders of the 1980’s warehouse scene to pioneering British black music around the world, and securing commercial success for themselves and the huge amount of artists they have influenced.
During the course of their stellar career the band have sold over 10 million albums worldwide and main man Jazzie B was awarded an OBE for services to music in 2008, as well as winning an Ivor Novello Award for Inspiration, as “the man who gave British black music a soul of its own”.
