As the group line up Mountford Hall gig, Getintothis’ Shaun Ponsonby with all the details on one of Britain’s greatest soul acts return to the city
British R&B legends Soul II Soul are coming back to Liverpool for a gig at Mountford Hall Saturday November 26 – their first gig in the city since they closed out the first ever LIMF Summer Jam at Sefton Park.
Best known for their #1 smash hit Back To Life (However Do You Want Me) and Top 10 hits such as Joy, Keep on Movin’ and Get a Life, Soul II Soul came out of the London sound system scene, with legendary DJ Jazzie B blasting reggae, soul and funk. When Virgin Records signed the group, Soul II Soul gave them a sound that was fresh, infectious and uniquely British.
To date Soul II Soul have sold over 10 million albums worldwide and even crossed over to America, where they scored a handful of hits and even picked up two Grammy awards.
Their current touring line-up crucially includes Jazzie B and Caron Wheeler – the vocalist on all those monster hits, and recently completed a rapturously received 25th anniversary tour. Their gig at Mountford Hall is bound to be a blinder!
