(BASE Entertainment Asia press release)
Sir Cliff Richard OBE, with global record sales beyond 250 million and a ceaseless performance schedule spanning 54 years, is set to return to Singapore for two nights only with a hit-packed national tour Still Reelin’ and A-Rockin’. Tickets are now on sale.
Celebrating his 54th anniversary in the music business this year, Cliff Richard is indisputably Britain’s all-time greatest hit-maker – no other UK band or solo artist is even close to equaling his 123 single hits.
He is set to perform MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands, on 25 and 26 February 2013.
As the sixties got underway, Cliff was dominating the airwaves with such indelible hits as Living Doll, Please Don’t Tease, Bachelor Boy, Lucky Lips, When The Girl In Your Arms Is The Girl In Your Heart, Don’t Talk To Him, Do You Want To Dance, On The Beach, I Could Easily Fall, The Day I Met Marie, The Minute You’re Gone, All My Love and Congratulations.
His constant presence in our lives was bolstered by smash box office films The Young Ones, Summer Holiday and Wonderful Life. In the seventies, he continued as a primary chart force with hits such as Devil Woman, We Don’t Talk Anymore and Carrie then into the eighties with Dreamin’, Wired For Sound, Daddy’s Home, Living Doll (with the Young Ones TV cast) and Some People.
There reaches a point where the recounting of the man’s achievements is too towering a task to attempt. So let it be said that the singer born Harry Rodger Webb in Lucknow, India on 14 October, 1940, recorded Britain’s first real rock’n’roll record (Move It) and has gone on to lodge more than 130 other releases in the U.K. charts only.
Together with Elvis Presley, he holds the honour of having made the UK singles chart in every one of its first six decades. Cliff is by far the biggest selling singles artist in the UK ever and has been included on the new century listing for the 100 Greatest Britons. He has also had eight Top 40 America hits, including the million-selling Devil Woman and We Don’t Talk Anymore, and that he has been in the Australian Top 10 on 25 occasions.
Alongside his many accolades in the entertainment industry, Cliff has also made his presence felt in theater – he conceived and starred in the stage musical Heathcliff (written by Sir Tim Rice and Australian John Farrar) which played to more than half a million audiences.
