EIGHTIES crooner Paul Young is back on the road, and at The Anvil on Sunday, 21 October performing his much-loved debut album No Parlez in celebration of 35 years since its release.

Originally in 1970s band Q-Tips, teen idol and Brit Award-winner Paul Young went solo in the 1980s and his career took off from there.

Reaching number one in the UK charts during 1983, and quickly becoming triple platinum, No Parlez produced his first UK number one single, the Marvin Gaye cover of Wherever I Lay My Hat, and hits Come Back and Stay, and Love of The Common People.

Paul also sang the opening lines on the original Band Aid Single Feed The World, and performed at the phenomenal Live Aid in 1984.

On Tuesday, 23 October, Eddi Reader performs at The Haymarket. Having grown up in Glasgow and Irvine, busking and performing at local folk clubs, Eddi was brought into the limelight with Fairground Attraction, and their single Perfect and parent album First of a Million Kisses which both topped the British charts.

However, it has been her subsequent solo albums which signalled her ability to integrate different musical styles and make them all very much her own.

From the traditional to the contemporary, she brings to life all forms of song, and what sets her apart is the depth and quality of the emotional performance; her ability not only to move the listener but to connect her experience to that of her audience.

Her passion and instinct, her blend of meltingly true vocals and towering romanticism, combine with an astute and pragmatic nature to make her a powerful figure in contemporary British music. She has effortlessly developed into one of popular music’s most thrilling and affecting performers.

In the 30th year since he lit up the nation's television screens on ITV's New Faces, Joe Pasquale will be at The Anvil on Friday, 26 October, marking this auspicious moment and celebrating his best cake, plus some surprises too.

Joe is perhaps best known for claiming the King of the Jungle crown on I’m Celebrity Get Me Out of Here. Continuously delighting audiences with his live stand-up tours, Joe continues to win the hearts of the nation.
