Brighton Dome welcomes a big voice!
“I’m Outta Love”, “Left Outside Alone”, “Paid My Dues”… when they play one of her hits on the radio, we all immediately recognize her incredible voice! Pop Legend Anastacia will go on tour in the UK tomorrow and stop at Brighton Dome for a phenomenal final performance on June 11th. And the good news is, there are still tickets available!
After a first contact with the music business when working as a professional dancer in music videos, Anastacia started her music career in 1990 as a backing vocalist. Her first own album “Not That Kind” immediately hit #2 in the UK Album Charts when released in 2000.
Followed “Freak Of Nature”, “Heavy Rotation”, “It’s A Man’s World”, “Resurrection” and “Ultimate Collection”. It is this last album that the superstar is taking on her 2017 UK tour. Released in 2015, the album made it into the Top 10 over here.
Superstar Anastacia will be performing at Brighton Dome on June 11th. Doors open at 6:45 pm, show starts at 7:30 pm. Tickets are still on sale here. Prices start from £40.
