80s Pop Star to Perform in Chester

The Live Rooms in Chester will soon be playing host to 80s pop musician Nik Kershaw.

The acclaimed English singer-songwriter will be stopping by the city as part of his upcoming UK tour entitled “No Glitz”. The small tour will see Kershaw play live for the first time in over a decade, but he won’t be alone. His sets will be accompanied by a skilled band of talented musicians, while guitarist Seb Wesson will be warming up the crowd as Kershaw’s special guest.

The intimate show in Chester will allow residents and visitors to the city a chance to see Kershaw play a selection of tracks from his extensive tenure on the music scene, which saw him release nine different albums. Those attending will be able to hear hits like “Wouldn’t it be Good”, “The Riddle”, “Dancing Girls”, “Don Quixote” and “Human Racing” among others.

Music icon Sir Elton John once described Kershaw as “the best songwriter of his generation”. In the mid-80s, the musician rose to prominence as a charting solo artist. Between 1984 and 1985, he spent 62 weeks in the UK singles charts, topping all competing acts. He played on stage at the Live Aid benefit concert for Africa, and wrote a number one hit for Chesney Hawkes in 1991 called “The One and Only”.

Nick Kershaw will now be on stage in L1 at the Live Rooms in Chester on Sunday, October 1. The venue is located at 1 Station Road, and the venue doors will open for the gig at 7pm. Tickets are priced at £32.50 per person.
