Shalamar are one of the most successful soul groups of all time, selling 25 million albums worldwide. Formed in 1976, the band enjoyed their first hit single the following year with the Motown inspired medley 'Uptown Festival'.
The 'underground soul club' hits continued with 'Take That To The Bank' in 1978, followed by 'Right In The Socket' and the infectious ‘The Second Time Around’, which dominated the airwaves through Autumn 1979.
In 1982, the whole world fell under the spell of Shalamar with the release of the ‘Friends’ album (which sold over one million copies in the UK) and in particular, 'A Night to Remember' – although it was not perhaps the song but the image of Jeffrey Daniel performing the 'Moonwalk' live on British Television for the first time on Top of The Pops that stopped a nation in their tracks.
Now Shalamar bring their Greatest Hits 2019 tour to the legendary Aldwych Theatre – without doubt, the combination of the best 80s Disco / Soul band on stage at the home of London’s #1 80s musical is something you won’t want to miss!
