Malcolm said: “I would listen to Lionel’s second album, ‘Cant Slow Down’ all the time as a teenager, not realising then that I was going to become a singer and sing these fantastic songs for a living.

“I can still remember when I first heard ‘All Night Long’ being at a house party and everyone was singing around a record player. It was such a memorable experience. And of course, Hello seemed to be at number one forever.”

This award winning five-star production also features a stellar line-up of world class musicians including musical director, Jonny Miller from Talon – The Best of Eagles show.

The show includes many popular classic hits including ‘Hello’, Easy’, ‘Three Times A Lady’, ‘All Night Long’ and ‘Stuck on You’ which are sure to have everyone on their feet, celebrating one of soul’s greatest modern superstars.
