Errol Brown, the former Hot Chocolate frontman and writer of the hit songs, embarks upon his farewell tour performing 21 UK dates in February 2009, exactly 40 years after the formation of Hot Chocolate.
Brown, who received an MBE for services to music in 2003, has not performed in the UK for 4 years. The legendary singer, whose hit ‘It Started with a Kiss’ was voted one of the top 20 love songs of all time, says of this tour “I’m doing this for my very loyal fans as I have been touched by their dedication all of my career. As a thank you I will be performing ALL the hits!”
The shows will feature ALL of his most popular songs, including ‘You Sexy Thing’, which re-ignited Brown’s popularity following its use in the hit movie The Full Monty, ‘Everyone’s a Winner’, ‘So You Win Again’ and of course, ‘It Started with a Kiss’.
Errol Brown’s career was launched in 1969 when John Lennon heard his reggae version of “Give Peace a Chance”, loved it and released it on Apple Records. This event marked the creation of Hot Chocolate, with whom he sang until 1985. Hot Chocolate achieved more than 30 hit singles, including 14 top-10s. Brown left the band in 1985 and has since embarked on several successful solo tours of the UK. In addition to receiving his MBE, he was also recipient of an Ivor Novello Award for Outstanding Contributions to British Music in 2004. A keen golfer, Brown now lives in the Bahamas with his wife of over 30 years.
“It Started With a Kiss” and ends with this tour…..
