One of the UK’s foremost singer-songwriters, Chris Rea, will light up the stage in Sheffield this month.

He will perform at the City Hall on Monday, March 26, where he will be airing his first new material in over a decade.

Chris will share songs and music from The Santo Spirito Project, two feature-length films on DVD, which he wrote and directed, with two accompanying CDs of songs and music.

The first film is a raw and brutally honest chronicle on bullfighting and features neo-classical and Spanish themed gypsy music, while the second film follows a man through the city of Florence in his search for the truth, on a journey which he may or may not wish he began.

On explaining the rational behind this ambitious project Chris said “I love creating things and passionately believe we (the artists) should be looking to try new ways of bringing what we do to the public.”

Chris’s career spans over 30 years and both The Road To Hell in 1989 and Auberge in 1991 debuted at No.1 in the UK. His many hit singles include Fool (If You Think It’s Over), On The Beach, Let’s Dance, Josephine, Stainsby Girls and I Can Hear Your Heartbeat, Working On It and Julia.

His autobiography, The Road To Hell & Back Again, is also due for release later this year.

Tickets for the show cost £35.50; contact 01142 789 789 or
