Cliff Richard (Harry Roger Webb) is a British rock n roll/pop singer and musician from London.
Starting his music career in 1958, his backing group changed their name a three times before deciding on The Shadows. Richard was signed to Columbia in August of that year, and his first single Move It - still an all time classic, having reached #2 in the charts, came out that month. On tour, he experienced hysterical girls fawning over their new British pop hero.
He began working on film and television, starring in Serious Charge and Expresso Bongo at first and continuing acting right through his career. Before he was 21, he became an international star and toured in many parts of the world while The Shadows were fast becoming stars in their own right. His career soared.
Over the past sixty years, he has had countless #1s, released 44 studio albums, seven soundtrack albums, 11 live albums and 15 compilation albums, including his debut ‘Cliff Sings’, in 1959, which hit #2 in the UK Albums Chart, ‘21 Today’, released in 1961, which gave him his first #1 album. His latest album, ‘Just... Fabulous Rock 'n' Roll’, which came out in November 2016, will be his 102nd album!
Cliff Richard heads out on his massive 58-18=60 Tour in autumn next year to celebrate 60 years in the music industry. Catch him live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
Exeter. Powerhdam Castle Exeter. on November 30 -0001
I have seen sir Cliff twice the last time at Powderham castle Exeter. He Rocks and we certainly Roll.
He performed so many to be Honest, devil woman, what car, Best of me, suddenly. But the highlight for me was that I went up to dance with all the fans, and last track We dont talk anymore suddenly all the fans rushed forward and me to and we were about 100 yards away from the man himself. Sir Cliff always delivers a Golden performance.
I went to see cliff with my husband who isn't particularly a fan but he thought it was good as well. It was the Soulicious Tour so they played some songs from the CD. Some of the earlier songs were played such as Carrie, We don't talk anymore, Devil Woman, Miss you Nights, I could go on all my favourites were there. Freda Payne sang Band of gold and Percy Sledge sang When a man loves a woman, Cliff had people dancing and singing the atmosphere was electric, a must for all cliff fans.
I WENT TO SEE CLIFF WITH MY SISTER AND HER PARTNER THE CONCERT WAS AMAZING. I LOVED ALL HIS SONGS. THE WORST MOMENT WAS GOING HOME. IT WAS THE BEST NIGHT IVE EVER HAD I WOULD LOVE TO BE ON STAGE WITH HIM HE STILL LOOKS YOUNG AT HEART
I have seen all his concerts in Ireland and the last one in Cork was absolutely fantastic. He sang and bopped on the stage like a teenager, he played the whole concert himself, tell me who gives such long concerts now with no support acts. My husband was with me, (he's not a major fan) but he had to admit that it was one ofthe best concerts he was ever at. The entertainment value is second to none. He interacts with the crowd and jokes, he said "he never thought that his last concert of the tour would be held in a tent". It was a little more than that. Ha.
Anyway, the atmosphere, the music, the songs, the singer, the band and the whole thing was the best. I have met him previously in the Point, aka the O2 and now known as the 3 Arena, and he is just as nice in person, I am a very chatty person, but my sister had to take the camera, as I couldn't speak I was so stuck for words, (I can still feel him shaking my hand). In summation, he is number one, numero uno, the tops, the best, the ultimate I just hope he also does a concert in Ireland next year, would love to see him again.
