Grammy Award-winning & five-time Brit Award-nominated band pay tribute to their legendary debut album
The double Grammy Award-winning and five-time Brit Award-nominated band will play 15 dates in the UK in October and November 2020, including a date at London's Royal Albert Hall.
Huge hits from the group include 'Keep On Movin' and the UK No.1 single 'Back To Life (However Do You Want Me)'. Soul II Soul progressed from being one of the leaders of the 1980's warehouse scene to pioneering British black music around the world. During their three-decade career Soul II Soul have sold over 10 million albums worldwide and main man Jazzie B was awarded an OBE for services to music in 2008, as well as winning an Ivor Novello Award.
Regarding the tour, Jazzie B commented 'Who would have thought that after thirty-odd years later we'd still be on the road with this thing? It's been a helluva journey – literally! – and I feel truly blessed. Now, I'm looking forward to going back to some of the familiar venues where we've made a lot of friends.'
