Sophie Ellis-Bextor confirms Bexhill and Guildford 2021 dates
Sophie Ellis-Bextor has confirmed she will be bringing her Kitchen Disco Tour to Bexhill’s De La Warr Pavilion on Saturday, May 15 2021, promising “the lockdown phenomenon live in concert.”
She also plays Guildford's G Live on May 17 next year.
A spokesman said: “Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s Instagram Live Kitchen Discos during the Covid-19 lockdown were a means of virtual escapism for many and became weekly moments of united sequined catharsis for the hundreds of thousands tuning in.
“Looking forward to 2021, the Live Kitchen Disco Tour will bring the virtual to life, cooking-up classic glitter ball staples and Sophie’s own dancefloor-beckoning bangers from across her seven albums, in a thoroughly domestic Studio-54 sensation for disco divas of all ages.
“The weekly live Instagram streams brought together the two main roles Sophie balances in her life: performer and mother. Underneath the family’s sparkling kitchen disco ball, Sophie, her husband Richard Jones (who also plays bass in Sophie’s live band), and their children’s familial exuberance put a smile on the face of the hundreds of thousands watching live on Instagram. The individual videos of songs from the performances also garnered millions of views on Twitter.”
On the Kitchen Disco Tour, Sophie Said: “During lockdown, our family kitchen discos became a precious time where we could all bop about and be a bit silly. It made me feel connected to everyone who joined us and I can honestly say the music was a real tonic which brought sparkly joy to my soul every Friday. The discos we shared have inspired me and now I want to see all your faces so I can sing for you. I want to give everyone a night where just for a little while we can all lose ourselves under the mirror ball and dance and have fun. Won’t that feel magical! I cannot wait!”
