EIGHTIES Soul Superstar, Sade, started her first world tour in over a decade last month.
On May 3, the Solihull News had chance to catch-up with her much-hyped show at Hamburg’s O2 Arena.
And on Sunday night, local fans will have the chance to see the concert for themselves, when the singer arrives at Solihull’s LG Arena.
“To continue doing what we do, and know that we are loved is a great thing,” says Sade.
“I can honestly say I’m really excited about the new tour. It will be old and new songs. It won’t just be a showcase for the new album.
“One of my favourite songs to perform is Cherish, and in the past I’ve loved to sing Pearls – to just let go and cry it out.”
Sade and her band of the same name, have racked up over 50 million record sales, since her chart debut in 1984.
The young-looking and attractive singer, aged 52, now lives in rural Gloucestershire, with her new partner and daughter who was born in 1996.
Last year’s Soldier of Love album was the band’s sixth in its 25 year career. It won a Grammy award, and reached number four in the UK.
For most of the past 20 years the singer prioritised her personal life over her career, releasing only three albums in that time. Support comes from The Jolly Boys, who once provided music at film star Errol Flynn’s wild house parties
l Sade plays the LG Arena on Sunday, May 29. Tickets priced £55 and £75 are available from 0844 338 8000.
