One of Britain’s most gifted, and unique vocal talents, Marc Almond, has announced a UK tour performing songs from his solo career, as well as his time in Soft Cell, ahead of a new album ‘Hits and Pieces’, which will also be released in March 2017.

With shows in London, Perth, York, Buxton and Warrington, the tour is a celebration of Marc Almond’s 60th birthday year, and will feature him with full band performing Number 1 singles ‘Tainted Love’ (which spent a record 43 consecutive weeks in the US singles charts), ‘Something’s Gotten Hold Of My Heart’, which Marc recorded with Gene Pitney, plus more of his biggest and best-loved hits.

The songs performed on the tour will also feature on the new album ‘Hits and Pieces’, which will be available in 1 and 2-CD formats on Universal.

‘A Musician who has never stood still’ according to The Observer, 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.

Q Magazine recently referred to Marc Almond as ‘one of pop’s greatest voices’, and he has also collaborated many other legendary figures in music, including Tony Visconti, Jools Holland, and Nico. Most recently, Marc performed as part of the BBC Proms celebration of the music of David Bowie.

Now, as he approaches his 60th birthday, these shows are an opportunity to celebrate with Marc Almond the ‘Hits and Pieces’ that have made up one of the most iconic careers in British popular music.
