Holly Johnson adds extra Liverpool date to upcoming tour
Holly Johnson

The new tour celebrates 40 Years since Frankie Goes to Hollywood ripped through the 80’s music scene with the release of their debut single RELAX. 

Iconic singer and songwriter Holly Johnson has announced five extra dates to his UK tour due to phenomenal demand, and one of them is Liverpool!

It’s no surprise that Holly’s show, right here in his hometown, at Liverpool Philharmonic sold out instantly. Holly has now added a second show at the venue along with dates added in some of the UK’s most prestigious venues such as Glasgow Pavilion Theatre, Birmingham Symphony Hall, Gateshead Sage and Brighton Dome.  
 
Holly’s headline tour news follows Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s incredible reformation for a one off special performance to open the 67th Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool in May.
 
Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s RELAX proved to be one of the decade’s most successful and controversial singles, it sold in excess of two million copies in the UK alone ranking it among the 10 biggest selling singles ever.

It remained in the charts for a record 37 weeks.  The BBC famously banned Relax, refusing to play it due to the perceived sexual content. 
 
Relax re-entered the charts following the release of their second single Two Tribes further cementing the bands place in music history with 2 singles sitting at chart positions Number 1 and 2.

The band started to unravel following the release of Welcome to the Pleasuredome. 
 
Holly moved on to solo success with the release of Blast which also celebrates 35 years and produced hits such as Love Train, Americanos, Heavens Here and Atomic City.

Holly will play Liverpool Philharmonic on Saturday 21 October 2023 (SOLD OUT), and again on Friday 10 November 2023 (EXTRA DATE).

Tickets are on sale Friday 7 July at 10am.
