Hue & Cry at Square Chapel 12 February, book now!

Posted on

Book your tickets here!

The 80’s legends pop duo Hue and Cry will be performing live in the Square Chapel Red Brick Auditorium on 12th February 2022.

This is a not to be missed opportunity to watch two incredible musicians perform their 80’s hits and latest tunes live on stage.

Piano/ Vocal Show Brothers Patrick and Gregory Kane formed Hue and Cry in 1983 and the duo made a huge impact in the late 80’s with the albums Seduced and Abandoned and Remote as well as massive hit singles such as Labour of Love. Albums like Stars Crash Down and Jazz Not Jazz ensured Hue and Cry’s continued triumph in the 1990’s, whilst the release of the hugely applauded Open Soul in 2008 brought them firmly back into the limelight. The release of their seasonal album Xmasday (2009) and live album Bitter Suite Again (2010), preceded the release of Hot Wire (2012) which received rave reviews.

To date Hue and Cry have sold in excess of two million records worldwide.

To book your tickets, visit the Square Chapel website.

Concert: 12 February 2022, doors open at 7:30pm
