Hazel O'Connor: Breaking Glass - 40 Years On

Breaking Glass: 40 Years On

They were absolutely fantastic, bringing the entire audience roaring to its feet.”  Telegraph

The first major female star of the 80’s, award winning singer-songwriter Hazel O’Connor rose to fame exactly forty years ago in 1980 starring in the film Breaking Glass. There were hits and eye-catching Top of The Pops appearances aplenty along the way.  Hazel's ageless songs include Eighth Day, Will You, Big Brother, Monsters in Disguise, Calls The Tune, If Only, Give Me An Inch, Blackman and Hanging Around - all of which seem even more relevant in our present times. 

Celebrating the Hallelujah Moments of of a stunning and illustrious live career Hazel is accompanied here by virtuoso saxophonist Clare Hirst (The Belle Stars, Communards, David Bowie) on sax, Sarah Fisher (Eurythmics) keyboards and Tony Qunta (Odyssey/Edgar Winter) on guitar. This powerful blend of voices and musicianship brings a classy touch of energy, passion and fire to Hazel’s vibrant performance. With a special meet and greet immediately after the show you're in for a treat. Unmissable!

"It's all there, that voice, soaring sax ...timeless" Glastonbury Festival

"The sturdiness and earthy expression of her voice... marvellous” Hot Press
