Shakin’ Stevens is set to embark on his biggest ever UK tour with 22 cities set to enjoy music from his 12th studio album Echoes Of Our Times, which includes a stop in Bath.

With 33 hit singles and four UK number ones to his name, this is surely a chance to see one of the country’s biggest entertainers live.

It has been almost four decades since his first hit and despite being one of the biggest selling artists of the 1980s, he has now decided to explore a different style of music as he looks to broaden his audience appeal.

This album also features a host of different instruments, including the harmonica and the harmonium – showcasing a rock and blues sort of style. Stevens says he has ‘gone back to the roots of his music’ and wants to perform to an audience who have seen him perform before, as well as fans who have not.

Shakin’ Stevens will be at The Forum, in St James’ Parade, on April 25 at 8pm.

Tickets, priced £22.50-35 are available from www.bathforum.co.uk
