Everyone’s favourite 80’s crooner Paul Young is back on tour, performing his much loved album No Parlez in celebration of 35 years since its release. Paul will visit Newcastle’s Tyne Theatre & Opera House on Wednesday 10th October.
No Parlez was Paul’s debut album. It reached number 1 in the UK charts in 1983 for 5 weeks and fast became triple Platinum. The album produced Paul’s first UK number 1 single – The Marvin Gaye cover of Wherever I Lay My Hat and hits Come Back & Stay & Love of The Common People. The album also features a cover of Joy Division’s Love Will Tear Us Apart.
Originally in early 80’s band Q-Tips, Paul Young went solo in the 80’s and his career took off with No Parlez and further top 10 hits such as Everytime You Go Away & Everything Must Change.
He is also a Brit Award winner for Best Male vocalist, sings the opening lines on the original Band Aid Single Feed The World and performed at Live Aid in 1984. Paul is a keen chef, biker and fan of all things Mexicana! A family man, always happy to be touring his classic hits as a solo artist or with his Tex Mex/ Americana band ‘Los Pacaminos’
