Cliff Richard to play Blickling Hall
14:03 06 December 2012
Cliff Richard will be back at Blickling Hall next summer.
Sir Cliff, Britain’s most successful artist with more than 250m record sales worldwide, will perform on the National Trust estate near Aylsham on June 6.
The D-Day Norfolk date will be the third gig in the vintage pop star’s Midsummer Nights series of seven shows: Still Reelin’ and A-Rockin.
Tickets for the event will be available via Seetickets from this Sunday, December 9, at 9am and are expected to sell fast.
Sir Cliff, now 72, performed in front of a sell-out crowd of 9,000 at Blickling in July 2004, whipping loyal fans into a frenzy with classics including summer Holiday, The Young Ones and Bachelor Boy.
Fans started arriving at the venue from 8.30am for the evening concert.
Cliff’s 2011 calendar pipped JLS, Justin Bieber and Michael Bublé’s efforts to the post, going on to win the Best Celebrity Retail Calendar award.
With a career spanning six decades and a legion of dedicated admirers, he said: “I want to put on a real first-class show for my wonderful fans who’ve supported me throughout the years, so I’ll be singing all the classic hits.”
