David Campbell, Twin Towns, Saturday

On the back of four Top Ten albums featuring tracks from Broadway through to 60s pop, David Campbell is excited to release his next album and labour of love, Let’s Go! featuring David’s signature-fresh twist on some of the most exciting tracks to come from the early eighties.

Initially inspired by the revolutionary ‘second British invasion’ of the early 80s, Let’s Go! features hits including Let’s Go, Shout To The Top, Come on Eileen, I’m Your Man and Tainted Love.

‘For this album, I wanted to put a fresh spin on some dance-pop classics with a big-band brass and string sound’, says Campbell. ‘We went back to basics and jammed some of our favourite tunes from our adolescence, and I couldn’t be happier with the result – an album of some of my favourite hits and party anthems – re-imagined in a way I know will keep my audiences on their feet!’

A multi-platinum-selling recording artist, Campbell has featured on TV, starred in theatre and cabaret, recorded four Top Ten albums, and sold out six concert tours from coast to coast.

See David at Twin Towns on Saturday.
