13 Oct Britain’s ‘Ultimate Pop Star’ Sir Cliff Richard celebrates his 80th birthday in cinemas nationwide
Britain’s ‘Ultimate Pop Star’, Sir Cliff Richard, invites you to be part of the most spectacular silver screen party of the year, as he celebrates his 80th birthday in cinemas nationwide.
On 27th October 2021, Sir Cliff will bring his enthralling live show to a cinema near you, as The Great 80 Tour is beamed live via satellite into over 500 cinemas around the UK from the Royal Albert Hall in London. After more than a year away from the stage, he will celebrate the return of live music by performing a selection of his greatest hits. Promising to be one of his most exciting concerts to date, his on-stage energy and passion will be sure to have you dancing in the aisles!
The event will also feature exclusive footage of Sir Cliff, recorded especially for cinema audiences.
The Great 80 Tour was originally scheduled for 2020 to coincide with Sir Cliff’s 80th birthday. He will now celebrate a year later, inviting cinema audiences to mark this very special milestone with him. With all 4 of the concerts at the Royal Albert Hall sold out, the cinema event is the perfect ticket to attend the show on your own doorstep, in the comfort of your local cinema.
Presented by CinemaLive, leading producers and distributors of Event Cinema, Cliff Richard: The Great 80 Tour will be shown on over 1,000 screens in the UK and Ireland including major multiplexes and many independent cinemas and arts centres.
Speaking about the cinema event, Cliff commented: “I am delighted that CinemaLive are once again partnering with us to show The Great 80 Tour in cinemas worldwide. This tour was sadly postponed from 2020 due to the pandemic and was due to be my 80th Birthday celebration with my fans. To have the opportunity to reach an even wider audience in cinemas, and especially for those international fans still unable to travel to the tour venues, is a little nerve wracking, but hugely exciting!!”
“I shall begin the tour aged 80 and will be 81 when in cinemas – what a great way to celebrate.”
Staggeringly, with over 100 albums under his belt, Sir Cliff Richard is undoubtably a musical icon, being the only British pop artist to have number one hits in every decade from the 1950’s to the end of the 20th Century. From rock tracks like ’Devil Woman’ to ballads like ’Miss You Nights’ – not to mention the UK’s best-loved Christmas songs – his music has been a constant for generations of people.
Cliff Richard: The Great 80 Tour follows Cliff Richard Live: 60th Anniversary Tour which grossed over £1.1 million at the UK & Irish Box Office across one weekend in 2018. Celebrating an astonishing 60 years in the music business, the concert was broadcast into cinemas live from Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall, becoming one of biggest live cinema events of the year.
Cliff Richard: The Great 80 Tour, distributed by CinemaLive, will be broadcast at 7:45pm on 27th October 2021.
Encore performances will be re-broadcasted on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st October at 2:30pm
