Tune in this Tuesday for the Gilbert O’Sullivan 50th Anniversary Tour. 2017 marks an exciting year for the musician, as we celebrate five decades of his work and one of the industry’s true legends. Fifty years ago, Gilbert O’Sullivan made his first foray into the music business with the release of his debut single Disappear. Fans are thrilled to find that his career is still thriving five decades later – seeing him dominate the charts in the seventies and continue to enjoy success and acclaim to the present day. Enjoy an evening at Newcastle City Hall, celebrating classics such as Alone Again Naturally, Nothing Rhymed, Clair Matrimony and Get Down as well as songs from the latest album Latin Ala G. including  No Way and I Guess Ill Always Love You.
