Lighthouse Family are set to venture out on their first tour in seven years, next month with a date at Sheffield City Hall on Monday 7 March 2011.
Having signed a brand new deal with Sony to record a new album following the March dates, the band will be showcasing some new material alongside all their greatest hits.
Vocalist Tunde Baiyewu and keyboard player Paul Tucker formed Lighthouse Family in 1993 in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK after meeting while studying at university. Their 1995 debut album Ocean Drive sold more than 1.8 million copies (six times platinum) in the UK alone. In a stellar run, following Ocean Drive with Postcards From Heaven and Whatever Gets You Through The Day, they sold over 10 million records worldwide. Their numerous top 10 singles include Lifted, Ocean Drive, High and Raincloud.
Their last tour was one of the highest selling of that year surpassed only by the Spice Girls. Having recently pursued individual projects Paul and Tunde are now back together and are excited to be playing as Lighthouse Family once again.
