Soul II Soul recently announced rescheduled dates due to the global Covid-19 restrictions for their forthcoming ‘Club Classics’ tour. They will complete a 15-date UK tour in 2022 starting on 21 January at the Tramshed, Cardiff and will finish with a show at London’s Royal Albert Hall on 18 April.
Regarding the tour Jazzie B says: "Who would have thought that after 30-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, I’m just as pumped about testing out places we’ve never been before but I'm seriously excited about playing the Royal Albert Hall. I want to thank to the fullness everybody who’s given their support up until now, and I’ll see you along the way – a happy face, a thumpin’ bass for a lovin’ race."
The double Grammy Award winning and five-time Brit Award nominated British band tour the UK as they pay tribute to their debut album ‘Club Classics Vol One’. It follows from the apparent success of their tour of the album in 2018 with various shows across the country.
During the course of their career the band 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 for Inspiration, as “the man who gave British black music a soul of its own.”
With tracks including ‘Keep On Movin’ (which sold over a million copies in the US alone) and the UK number one single ‘Back To Life (However Do You Want Me)’, Soul II Soul progressed from being ‘one of the leaders of the 1980s warehouse scene to pioneering British black music around the world, and securing commercial success for themselves and the huge amount of artists they have influenced.’
