Easy-listening icon Barbara Dickson has announced details of a nationwide tour which will bring her to the North West on three dates this March.

The multi-million selling singer with an equally impressive Olivier Award winning acting career will play Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall on March 1, St Annes Lowther Pavilion on March 3 and the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall on March 7.

Barbara Dickson OBE has long since cemented her status as one of the UK’s best-loved performers, and the 24-date tour will see her performclassics from across her whole career, both pop and folk, alongside new material.

Emerging from the Scottish Folk Revival of the 1960s, Barbara Dickson became the biggest selling Scottish female album artist of all time, earning six platinum, 11 gold and seven silver albums.

Known to a wider audience in the 1970s and 1980s with hits including Answer Me, Another Suitcase in Another Hall, The Caravan Song and I Know Him So Well, she enjoyed ten years of chart success as a pop star.

So much was her contribution that she was awarded an OBE in 2002 for Services to Music and Drama.

As an actress, she has appeared in the award-winning theatre productions: John, Paul, George, Ringo and Bert; Blood Brothers and Spend, Spend, Spend. She was the original Mrs Johnstone and Willy Russell’s muse.

After a musical odyssey of 40 years creating music, playing guitar and piano, acting and songwriting this tour is a culmination of her journey thus far.
