Fans of music legend Michael Ball will be pleased to hear he is visiting Hull for the very first time.
He is known as one of the nation’s most cherished performers and will be singing hits from his newly released solo album Coming Home To You, as well as the classics many know and love.
The star has a number of accolades to his name including being a double Olivier Award winner, multi-platinum recording artist, top-selling live concert performer and hugely popular radio and TV presenter, who has made box-office history.
Michael Ball will be playing at the Bonus Arena on April 24 and the performer says that he is looking forward to playing in our city.
“It will be my first trip to Hull to perform and I’ve also never visited before, but I’ve heard it’s pretty rocking, and there’s a great theatrical tradition here with Hull Truck Theatre, and the City of Culture status is sure to have brought the city alive,” said Mr Ball.
“I’m really excited for the new album release and to perform new tracks, which had a live audience in mind, as well as performing hits that I wrote with my fellow singer Alfie Boe.
“I can’t wait to come to the Bonus Arena – the show is only as good as the audience, and every audience is different, but I’m looking forward to me and the crowd getting to know each other and laugh, cry and dance throughout the show.
