ICONINSIDER — Sir Cliff Richard will headline Greenwich Music Time in 2019.
The 78-year-old is overjoyed to be playing on the bill at the Old Royal Naval College on Monday 1 July, and he said it is sure to be a “particularly special” evening because of the venue.
Sir Cliff – who is the first name to be announced for next year’s event gushed: “I’m so delighted to be coming back to Greenwich Music Time next year.
“Performing once again in such a unique location will be particularly special. Live shows are the best part of being an artist.
“I can connect with my incredible fans directly and thank them for all of their endless love and support.”
The ‘Summer Holiday’ singer – who has had a successful career spanning 60 years and has sold more than 250 million records worldwide – gained 5-star reviews and praise for his engaging performance last year which the Telegraph labelled “a joyous affirmation of pop’s power to charm, uplift and console”.
