Cliff sets Ulster date ... a year early thanks to Time Machine

Cliff Richard

Sir Cliff Richard is to give his Ulster fans a Christmas gift - a year in advance.

The legendary singer will play the Odyssey Arena in Belfast on December 2, 2008.



The concert will be part of his huge Time Machine Tour, which will mark the star's 50th anniversary in the music industry.

The evergreen 67-year-old first came to the public's attention in 1958 as a teenage singer with The Drifters. That summer Cliff left the band and landed a recording deal with EMI. He stayed with the record label until he switched to Decca in 2004.

Sir Cliff, who plays Belfast regularly, is the only artist apart from Elvis to have had hit singles in every decade from the Fifties to the Noughties.

Worldwide he has sold over 250m records and his singles include Bachelor Boy, The Young Ones, Congratulations, Living Doll, Mistletoe and Wine, Carrie, We Don't Talk Anymore and When God Shines His Light, a duet with Belfast singer Van Morrison.

Tickets to see Sir Cliff in December 2008 go on sale this Saturday at 9am, priced £55, £44 and £38.

A spokesperson for Aiken Promotions said: "Sir Cliff always announces his shows a year in advance and we're expecting the Belfast one to sell out quickly."

You'll appreciate their quirky ways and they'll be impressed by your extensive knowledge. It's a match made in heaven. You'll probably have to make the first move.More
