CONCERT: Cliff Richard to perform at Hove09-Dec-2012
Superstar rocker Cliff Richard returns to the UK with Midsummer Nights at The County Ground, Hove on Saturday 15th June 2013
He’s Britain’s most successful artist with over 250 million record sales worldwide and over 120 top 40 hits. He’s a star of the screen with films like The Young Ones and Summer Holiday. He’s gained millions of loyal fans, and has a place in the UK Music Hall of Fame for his outstanding contribution to British music.
And now, Sir Cliff Richard O.B.E. is returning to the UK in June 2013 for a spectacular Midsummer Nights series of shows, Still Reelin’ and A-Rockin’, playing at The County Ground on the 15th June.
Knighted in 1995 – the first rock and roll superstar to be honoured with the title – Cliff has always been a firm favourite with his fans. Incredibly, his 2011 calendar pipped JLS, Justin Bieber and Michael Bublé’s efforts to the post, going on to win the Best Celebrity Retail Calendar award. And his wine, produced in his own Portuguese vineyard, holds Tesco’s record of being the fastest-selling bottle in the supermarket's history.
With a career spanning over six decades and a legion of dedicated admirers, Cliff says he can’t wait to put on the show of a lifetime.
“I'm thrilled to announce I’ll be performing next summer,” he says. “I want to put on a real first-class show for my wonderful fans who’ve supported me throughout the years, so I’ll be singing all the classic hits. Make sure you have your tickets booked, and I’ll see you there!”
Dave Brooks, Chief Executive of Sussex Cricket, said “We are delighted to have secured such a high profile concert for 2013, to build on the success we had in 2011 with Sir Elton John and 2012 with JLS.
“The County Ground is becoming established as a leading outdoor venue in the South and we are sure that Cliff Richard will prove to be another huge success. Bringing acts of this quality and standing to the City is a real coup and we look forward to another great day out.”
