If you are quick you might be lucky enough to snap up the final tickets to see Soul II Soul live in concert in St Albans.
Soul II Soul are back at The Alban Arena on Friday, November 4 to perform an exclusive full live band show featuring Jazzie B and Caron Wheeler.
Led by producer/vocalist/songwriter Jazzie B, Soul II Soul are one of the most innovative dance R&B outfits from the UK, creating a seductive, deep R&B that borrowed from Philly soul, disco, reggae, and 80s hip-hop.
Originally featuring Jazzie B, producer arranger Nellee Hooper, and instrumentalist Philip ‘Daddae’ Harvey, the musical collective came together in the late 80s.
The group had a residency at the Africa Centre in London’s Covent Garden, which led to a record contract with 10, a subsidiary of Virgin.
Two singles, Fairplay and Feel Free, began to attract attention both in clubs and in the press.
Featuring the sublime vocals of soul singer Caron Wheeler, Soul II Soul’s third single, Keep on Movin’, reached the UK top 10 in March of 1989.
Released in the summer of that, Back to Life (However Do You Want Me) also featured Wheeler and topped the UK charts for four weeks.
Soul II Soul released their debut album, Club Classics, Vol. 1, shortly afterwards, reaching number one in the UK charts.
The official YouTube video of Soul II Soul performing Back To Life (However Do You Want Me) has been watched nearly 22 million times.
There are a few tickets remaining for the group’s St Albans show, which starts at 8pm.
Tickets cost £31.50.
