Grammy Award-winning jazz/soul singing sensation Gregory Porter is to visit Aberdeen’s His Majesty’s Theatre as part of a wider UK tour in April 2016.
Gregory Porter continues to perform to sell out audiences across the world and has achieved international recognition and acclaim with his Best Vocal Jazz Album Grammy Award winning album ‘Liquid Spirit’. In the UK alone, the album is certified gold and has had staying power in the Official Album Charts - for 80 weeks since release.
Tickets for the one-night show on Monday 11 April, go on sale to APA Friends on Thursday 2 July and to the general public on Friday (1 July) online at www.aberdeenperformingarts.com, by phone at 01224 641122 and at Aberdeen Box Office at the Music Hall and His Majesty’s Theatre.
Aberdeen Performing Arts New Media Marking Officer, Andrew Raffan said “We are thrilled to welcome Grammy Award winning talent to Aberdeen for what is sure to be a spectacular night at His Majesty’s Theatre.”
On the back of a steaming set at Glastonbury and other recent shows - critics comment on Porter as a new ’king of jazz’ and a ‘leader of the pack’ – a performer of extraordinary prescence who has compared with the greatest of the greats, such as Joe Williams, Nat Cole, Donny Hathway and Marvin Gaye.
