Award-winning singer, writer and actress Hazel O’Connor has announced a thirteen-date UK tour with the finale taking place at Town Hall on Saturday 2nd December.
Hazel became an overnight sensation after her BAFTA nominated portrayal of Kate in the 1980 smash hit film Breaking Glass. During this period, Hazel released three of her most successful albums; Breaking Glass, Sons and Lovers and Cover Plus, which produced a stream of top ten hits, including the iconic Will You, Eighth Day and D’Days.
Hazel is back with her full band and will be joined on stage by her brother Neil O’Connor for the first time in since their 2 week residency at Ronnie Scott’s back in 1984. Neil played original guitars on the Sons and Lovers and Cover Plus album and enjoyed his own success as the front man of the punk band The Flys. Hazel is joined on stage with a 5 piece band including Clare Hirst on Sax and Sarah Fisher on Keys.
O’Connor said, “Looking forward to be playing excerpts from these three albums as I often don't get the opportunity to play my early songs and to be joined by Neil who was there at the inception of these songs is a privilege for me, as is getting to play with my sisters in music sax player Clare Hirst (Belle Stars Comunards and David Bowie) and keyboards and vocals Sarah Fisher (Eurythmics) in this full band line up is gonna be a powerful thing!”
