Elkie Brooks brings her band to The Pavilion Theatre, Worthing, on Saturday 14th July 2018, where they will perform songs that feature on her latest hits collection ‘Pearls – The Very Best Of Elkie Brooks’ Tracks performed will include ‘Lilac Wine’, ‘Fool If You Think It’s Over’, ‘Sunshine After The Rain’, ‘No More The Fool’ and her signature hit ‘Pearl’s A Singer’.
Elkie Brooks, who began singing professionally in 1960, and whose credits include working with The Beatles, The Small Faces and The Animals as support artist, and singing with Humphrey Lyttleton‘s jazz band, before co-fronting the band Vinegar Joe alongside Robert Palmer, broke out as a solo performer with albums such as ‘Rich Man’s Woman’ and 1977’s ‘Two Days Away’, the latter of which featured her monster hit and signature song ‘Pearl’s A Singer’, which was co-written and produced by Elvis stalwarts Leiber & Stoller. The song lit up the charts and gave her her first timeless classic.
The hits kept coming: ‘Fool If You Think It’s Over’, ‘Lilac Wine’, ‘Sunshine After The Rain’, ‘Warm And Tender Love’, ‘Don’t Cry Out Loud’ and her highest charting hit ‘No More The Fool’. Her 1981 album ‘Pearls’ was in the charts for 79 continuous weeks and went on to sell over a million, making Elkie Brooks the biggest selling female album artist in the history of the British pop charts at the time. And the work rate didn’t let up: over the course of the next 25 years, she has released some 20 albums.
Elkie Brooks will be at The Pavillion Theatre, Worthing on the 14th July. For ticket information, please see the Worthing Theatres website.
