Top musician to start UK tour in Skegness

WELL-KNOWN musican Curtis Stigers is set to perform at the Embassy Theatre in Skegness this Saturday (March 24) at the very start of his latest UK tour.

Stigers, who shot to international fame with hits ‘I Wonder Why’ and ‘You’re All That Matters To Me’, has a wide array of musical accomplishments to his name.

“Throughout his career, Curtis has been celebrated for a surprisingly wide variety of impressive accomplishments,” said a spokesperson.

“From his early pop chart success with several self-penned, top-ten singles and hit albums and an appearance on the soundtrack for The Bodyguard (one of the biggest selling albums of all time), to Downbeat Magazine naming him as one of the jazz genre’s Rising Male Stars and The Times selecting his 2006 recording You Inspire Me as Jazz CD of the Year.”

“This month Stigers releases Let’s Go Out Tonight, an intricate album that is a definite contender for his best work to date.

“With one of the most distinctive voices in music, Stigers pushes the boundaries of conventional jazz performers and Let’s Go Out Tonight is set to further enhance the singer, saxophonist and songwriter’s reputation as one of his generation’s finest and most original interpreters of modern songs.

Let’s Go Out Tonight is released on March 26, two days after he begins his UK-wide tour in Skegness on Saturday. The concert will begin at 7.30pm.
