Moyet lines up exclusive show

UK music icon Alison Moyet has just announced details of an exclusive headline performance at the Waterfront, Belfast on Tuesday 1st October 2013

Tickets go sale from Friday through Ticketmaster outlets nationwide, www.ticketmaster.ie and the Waterfront Hall Box office.

Alison Moyet is a Basildon girl born to a French father and English mother. Having left school at 16, she began her musical journey in punk bands and on the Canvey Island pub rock scene. Her studying piano tuning came to an abrupt halt when ‘Only You’ became a worldwide hit for her and Vince Clarke, the duo otherwise known as Yazoo. Completely by accident, she found herself thrust into the spotlight of the mainstream pop world.

Yazoo went on to reinvent British dance music, merging cool synthesised soundscapes with soul. Two albums and a Brit Award for Best New Band later, aged just 23 she signs a solo deal with Columbia and records the multi-million selling debut ‘Alf’. Released in 1984 the album spawned three UK Top 10 hits and wins her a Brit for Best Female Artist.
