I'm discovering Southampton along with you!
80s heartthrob, Paul Young, is coming to Southampton's Engine Rooms on Sunday February 4th for a concert that will cover favourite 80s and 90s hits as well as more recent releases. Paul Young will be playing in Southampton as part of a larger UK Tour.

Paul Young started off as the singer for stream of bands including Kat Kool & the Kool Cats, Streetband and Q-Tips. But it wasn't until he started going solo in the early 80s that his popularity really took off. Some of his best known hits include 'Love of the Common People', 'Come Back and Stay' and Wherever I Lay My Hat, but he also had success with covers of songs by other well known artists. Paul Young's music was a mix of R&B, soul & pop, there was a definite 80s sound but without the same electronica feel as many 80s bands.

In 2016 Paul Young released 'Good Thing', full of Young's take on his most loved soul tunes. It was his first solo album in 20 years. His hair is a little more restrained, and his shirts a little more buttoned, but he still has a loyal following who love his music.

Paul Young will be playing at Engine Rooms at 7pm on Sunday Feburary 4th. Tickets for the show are available online through the Engine Rooms website. Tickets are 25 plus a booking fee. The event is 14 plus only.
