Hazel O’Connor starring at The Horn, St Albans
TOP female star of the eighties, Hazel O’Connor, is appearing at The Horn in St Albans next Tuesday, November 23, as one of a series of special concerts she is giving in November.
The star of the movie Breaking Glass, for which she wrote and performed the soundtrack, became a cult figure and after a sell-out tour this year, she is currently celebrating the film’s 30th anniversary with songs from the movie.
They include Eighth Day, Will You, Big Brother and a host of other numbers which she is performing with The Subterraneans all over the country during November, culminating in a gig at the Leicester Square Theatre on December 5.
She is making her first appearance at The Horn and said: “This is a first for me but as I used to live in nearby Radlett I am hoping all my old friends will come along. It will be great to be back in that part of the world with The Subs.”
Hazel’s new album, Breaking Glass Now, launches next week and is a new reworking of the original material which, thanks to modern musical technology, has an up-to-the-minute feel and sound.
Opening the evening will be Tensheds, the musical troubadour who has played gigs all around the UK and Europe supporting such performers as Paul Young and The Arctic Monkeys.
Tensheds, aka Matt Millership, trained as a classical pianist and in 2008, he won the Performing Rights Society UK Unsigned Award.
