Barbara Dickson to Come to Glasgow on a UK-Wide Tour
BARBARA Dickson is coming to Glasgow.
The multi-million selling recording artist – with an equally impressive Olivier Award-winning acting career – has long since cemented her status as one of the UK’s best-loved performers.
Now for 2019, she has announced an extensive UK tour with her full band.
Emerging from the Scottish folk revival of the 1960s, Barbara became the biggest selling Scottish female album artist of all time, earning six platinum, 11 gold and seven silver albums.
Known to a wider audience in the 1970s and 1980s with hits including Answer Me, Another Suitcase in Another Hall, The Caravan Song and I Know Him So Well, she enjoyed 10 years of chart success as a pop star. So much was her contribution that she was awarded an OBE from Her Majesty The Queen in 2002 for Services to Music and Drama.
Barbara has captivated people with her soulful, intelligent readings of material from traditional songs of her native Scotland to working class heart-rending theatre roles where her own background has infused the emotional content of whatever she touches.
As an actress, she has appeared in the award-winning theatre productions John, Paul, George, Ringo and Bert, Blood Brothers and Spend, Spend, Spend. She was the original Mrs Johnstone and Willy Russell’s muse.
After a musical odyssey of 40 years creating music, playing guitar and piano, acting and songwriting, this tour is a culmination of her journey thus far, an evening packed with songs from one of the finest voices you will ever hear.
Barbara will be performing at the Royal Concert Hall on February 7, 2019. For tickets and additional dates, go to ticketline.co.uk.
