About

Simply Red will be playing Bedford Park this Summer for one night only!
Join us for this amazing evening!
Few bands have enjoyed the success and longevity of Simply Red. With over 60 million albums sold worldwide, 5 x UK #1 hit albums and over a billion views on YouTube, Simply Red remain one of the UK's most successful bands. Their most recent album 'Blue Eyed Soul' was released in November 2019 and crashed into the UK charts at #6, proving Simply Red to be as relevant as ever.

Mick Hucknall formed Simply Red in 1985 in Manchester and enjoyed immediate success with first single 'Money's Too Tight To Mention' and the BRIT Award-nominated album 'Picture Book' (the first of 13 nominations, and 3 BRIT Award wins). This was followed by a decade of superstardom and global hits. Simply Red were nominated for 3 prestigious Grammy Awards and continue to consistently sell out tours across the globe.

Their live show is renowned for its high quality with Mick Hucknall long-established as one of the great vocalists of contemporary music. His raw honey and whiskey tone, and ability to shift from tender sensuality to full on roaring power in a heartbeat, is guaranteed to bring the biggest of crowds together to create an unmissable atmosphere.

In for a real treat this evening, you will also see Lisa Stansfield take to the stage. After being introduced to Coldcut in 1989, her guest vocals helped 'People Hold On' storm the charts and led to a solo career which saw the Rochdale star conquer the world with her accessible soulful dance music. She went on to win 3 BRIT Awards, 2 Grammy nominations, and enjoy a string of hits, including worldwide #1 smash, 'All Around The World', on her way to selling over 20 million albums. A proven talent, Lisa Stansfield is sure to get the crowds up and dancing.

Another treat in store for you; Marisha Wallace, successful Broadway and London West End star, will perform. She starred in 'Something Rotten' 'Dreamgirls', and 'Waitress', took on the role of Motormouth Maybelle in 'Hairspray' and most recently starred in box office hit movie 'Aladdin'. She also stars in Netflix hit show 'Feel Good' alongside Mae Martin and Lisa Kudrow. The Simply Red summer dates are an unmissable opportunity to catch an artist who was undoubtedly born to perform and entertain.

Hailing from North Carolina, Marisha is known around the world for her incredible voice. Her cover version of 'Tomorrow' from the musical 'Annie', released at the peak of the pandemic to raise funds for out of work performers, saw her topping music charts. BBC Radio 2 added her to the playlist and made her 'Tomorrow' album their 'Album Of The Week'. As her star continues to rise, Marisha has performed on This Morning, Strictly Come Dancing and for the Queen at the Royal Variety Show.

Marisha Wallace is a natural performer with irrepressible energy and a voice which can bring any crowd to its feet. These spectacular shows will take place outside and are a perfect opportunity for friends and families to come together for a special evening of entertainment. A lineup which also includes Simply Red and Lisa Stansfield should be a must on the summer calendar of any live music fan.
