PREVIEW: Gilbert O’Sullivan @ Newcastle City Hall
Posted on September 14th 2017 by Whats on Northeast
It’s been a whole 50 years – yes, five decades – since singer and pianist Gilbert O’Sullivan first broke through on to the charts with his debut single ‘Disappear.’
Since then, it’s been nothing but success for Gilbert. From dominating the charts in the sixties and seventies through to today, he’s never failed to delight his audience with his often sensitive tunes and distinctive voice. Now he’s celebrating 50 years in the business with a new tour, heading to Newcastle City Hall on Thursday 21st September.
In it, he’ll be exploring every facet of those five decades, celebrating the hits of his first twenty years as a singer with the likes of ‘Alone Again Naturally,’ ‘Nothing Rhymed,’ ‘Clair,’ ‘Matrimony’ and ‘Get Down.’ At the same time, he’s set to prove that he’s showing no signs of slowing down just yet, bringing in songs from his most recent album, 2015’s ‘Latin Ala G.’ From there, he’s set to showcase tunes such as ‘No Way’ and ‘I Guess I’ll Always Love You.’
It’s set to be a spectacular night, naturally.
