Chart-topping Tony Christie comes to Corby
Chart-topper and much-loved musician Tony Christie brings his Golden Anniversary Tour to The Core this weekend.
Christie’s career has taken him all over the world and seen him release more than 40 albums, 70 singles and perform countless live shows to thousands of people.
His work life began in the accounts office of a steel company in Yorkshire, while at the same time he was singing semi-professionally in working men’s clubs in the north of England.
This tour and new album collection of 50 songs is Tony’s musical autobiography, one that shows he truly is a consummate singer and able to reinterpret a song, not merely cover it.
The album features classic covers, including Jimmy Webb’s Didn’t We, George Harrison’s My Sweet Lord, Dobie Gray’s Drift Away and Bacharach & David’s A House Is Not A Home, as well as new songs recorded in Memphis such as the single Early Morning Memphis.
Not only will Tony and his band be treating audiences to his classic hits Amarillo, Las Vegas and I Did What I Did For Maria but he will also be joined by special guests Ranagri to perform songs from his recent hit album The Great Irish Songbook which sees him celebrate his Irish roots.
He said: “This is the first time I have taken two separate bands on the road.
“It is going to be one heck of a show, I really cannot wait.
“I am so excited to be able to perform with these guys and sing my biggest hits and some absolutely wonderful classic songs”.
