Howard Jones is to premiere his new worldwide show live in Norwich – and broadcast it live to the world.
The iconic singer songwriter, whose hits include New Song, What is Love and many more, is celebrating 30 years since he first shot to fame with a special world premiere in Norwich.
The show will be filmed at Epic Studios and broadcast live around the world. The footage will then be used to make a live DVD.
What Is Love was a huge hit and released 30 years ago almost to the very day of the show, at Epic on Thursday, November 28, and has been on radio playlists ever since.
But Jones has also recorded a range of new songs – and they will be heard for the first time in Norwich.
The shows will be split into three parts, the first an unplugged acoustic set including some rarely performed tracks.
The middle part of the show will be the debut of a brand new work, a multimedia performance written especially for these shows.

The final set will be electric, celebrating his best known songs and highlights from his career and promises to be a rip-roaring finale.
The singer said: 'I wrote music specifically for the gig as part of my 30th anniversary celebrations. It's on a grand scale, with lots of drama and explosions.
'I really hope to see my fans at the concert because this music won't be played in this form again.'
Jonathan Thursby, owner of Epic, said: 'This will showcase the depth of the creative talent here in Norfolk and why Norfolk can match any studio and recording facility anywhere in the UK.'
There are still some tickets available to be part of the live audience on the broadcast and DVD, available on www.epic-tv.com or 01603 727727, which also has details of how you can tune into the live broadcast.
