Cliff Richard to perform 70th birthday concerts at Royal Albert Hall

Visit our main website at:

Sir Cliff Richard is to celebrate his 70th birthday with a series of six spectacular concerts at London’s Royal Albert Hall between Monday, 11 October and Sunday, 17 October 2010.

The only night Sir Cliff won’t be performing during that week is Thursday, 14 October – his 70th birthday.

Accompanied by a Swing Band, Cliff will sing many of the hits from his 52 year career, along with a selection of songs from his forthcoming album, Bold as Brass.

The special 70th birthday shows follow Sir Cliff’s solo 50th Anniversary concerts in 2008, and his 36-date reunion tour with The Shadows in 2009 and 2010.

Sir Cliff – who had his first hit in 1958 with ‘Move It’ – has sold more than 250 million records to date. He is the only UK artist who has had a Number One hit in each of five decades from the 1950s to the 1990s.

Sir Cliff is also said to be launching his own brand of sparkling wine to mark his landmark birthday. He owns a vineyard in Portugal’s Algarve region, where he already produces his own brand of wine called Vida Nova.

Despite reaching the big ‘70’, and planning to perform on a gruelling six nights out of seven, Cliff insists he is as fit as ever … an inspiration to any Sh-Boom! readers who have also had to blow out 70 candles this year.

“I’m still driven,” says Cliff. “I never feel I’ve reached my peak.”
