From £35

Following the recent sad announcement of the death of David Gest, it has been decided to continue with this concert of Soul legends in tribute to his work as a concert producer and promoter.

Arranged by David Gest before his untimely death in April 2016, this concert brings together a glittering line-up of Soul legends, in a night of music and celebration in tribute to David’s life and work.

Due to the sad death of Billy Paul in late April 2016, who had originally been part of this line-up, the remaining artists will pay tribute to him and his music in their own way on the night.

The glittering bill includes:

The return of a Legend: DINA CARROLL (The Perfect Year, Escaping, Don’t be a Stranger, Ain’t no Man, It’s too Late, Express)

The originial lead singer of THE STYLISTICS and all their hits RUSSELL THOMPKINS JR (I Can’t Give You Anything (But My Love), You Make Me Feel Brand New, Sing Baby Sing, I’m Stone in Love With You, Funky Weekend).
