Lisa Stansfield plays hits and more at Royal & Derngate


Iconic soul singer Lisa Stansfield takes to the Derngate stage on Tuesday, 25 years after topping the charts around the world.

Famously known for her single All Around The World which kick-started her career, Lisa has returned to her roots of soul and R&B.

She will be joined by a live band on stage and will perform songs from her latest album Seven, along with some of her classic and most popular hits.

Talking about the stories, characters and songs within her songs and lyrics on the album, Lisa said: “I think we all suffer the same pain, all feel the same happiness and we all have the same emotions within us.

“My life isn’t very racy or exciting so I make things up, tell stories. I like telling stories.” Lisa has described the album’s meaning and overall feel as a soul record with an eclectic thread running through it.

She said: “A lot of the album is about the trap that a woman has got herself into, an unrequited, doomed or mismatched love and how to get herself out of it… if she can.”

Lisa Stansfield plays at Royal & Derngate in Northampton on Tuesday, September 9.

Doors open at 7.30pm. Tickets cost from £27.50 to £37.50 and can be booked by calling 01604 624811 or online at
