22 May Lisa Stansfield announces ‘Affection’ 30th anniversary tour coming to Southend
Lisa Stansfield has announced a run of dates in October and November 2019 to mark the 30th anniversary release of her debut solo album ‘Affection’.
Her tour is coming to, Cliffs Pavilion, Southend on Monday 21st October 2019.
What happened was a multi-platinum album that, on its release in 1989, went onto sell over 5 million copies worldwide, winning 3 BRIT Awards, 2 Ivor Novello Awards, a Silver Clef Award, an ASCAP Award and, overseas, a Billboard Music Award, a World Music Award, and 2 Grammy nominations.
Its singles ‘All Around The World’ (which did indeed become massive across the globe), ‘What Did I Do To You’, ‘Live Together’, ‘You Can’t Deny It’ and ‘This Is The Right Time’ exploded onto the airwaves and introduced Lisa and her unique brand of soul, R&B and Brit-house to the masses.
Now, on its 30th anniversary, the album will be celebrated with a tour that will see Lisa and her prodigious band perform the hits and more from ‘Affection’, alongside favourites and classics from Lisa’s seven subsequent solo records.
