The Line Up
Soul II Soul
Brand New Heavies
Iconic British band Soul II Soul are coming to Arena MK in November, and 2018 marks 30 years of hugely influential success for the band! They will be paying tribute to their legendary debut album, ‘Club Classics Vol 1’.
With huge hits including ‘Keep On Movin’ (which sold over a million copies in the US alone) and the UK number one single ‘Back To Life (However Do You Want Me).’ Soul II Soul progressed from being one of the leaders of the 1980’s warehouse scene to pioneering British black music around the world, and securing commercial success for themselves and the huge amount of artists they have influenced. During the course of their stellar career the band have sold over 10 million albums worldwide and main man Jazzie B was awarded an OBE for services to music.
The double Grammy Award winning and five-time Brit Award nominated band will play Arena MK on Friday 30th November 2018 along with The Brand New Heavies!
Brand New Heavies
It was old school friends Jan, Andrew and Simon pursuing their near-obsessive love of soul music and '70s funk that inspired them to form The Brand New Heavies.
Early hits ‘Never Stop and ‘Dream Come True’ were original chunks of organic funk that earned the band a reputation as a formidable live act and their reinterpretations of popular standards, such as ‘Midnight At The Oasis’, Carole King's ‘You've Got A Friend ‘and the Stevie Wonder classic ‘I Don't Know Why (I Love You)’, brought major global chart success.
Having made their mark originally with the immensely talented vocalist N’Dea Davenport, the core trio of Jan Kincaid, Simon Bartholomew and Andrew Levy were later fronted by Siedah Garrett and Carleen Anderson. Brand New Heavies and Soul II Soul are an exciting bill so get set for one of the best live music nights Milton Keynes has seen all year!
Both acts will be live at Arena MK on Friday 30th November.
