This hails the beginning of a new chapter for Hucknall after the final curtain fell on Simply Red at their triumphant sell-out Farewell Tour in December 2010.

On what promises to be a very special night in Hucknall’s glittering career, he will showcase his forthcoming new solo album American Soul, featuring his own take on classic songs which have inspired him throughout his life.

Mick is renowned for his great interpretations of others’ songs, having already had global hits with Money’s Too Tight To Mention, If You Don’t Know Me By Now and You Make Me Feel Brand New. The start of Hucknall’s solo career gives him free rein to record, together on one album, his favourites from his own personal journey through the American soul genre including such gems as I Only Have Eyes For You, I’d Rather Go Blind and That’s How Strong My Love Is.

The Royal Albert Hall is without doubt the most prestigious and beautiful live venue in London and has been the host to the most revered artists of our time, drawn from every musical genre; a fitting venue for the launch of the exciting next phase in Mick Hucknall’s extraordinary career.
