Billy Ocean is one of Britain’s greatest ever soul stars having sold 30 million records, and he’ll be bringing his swing to Wollongong on June 22.
The Caribbean Queen hit-maker will play for one night only at the WIN Entertainment Centre as part of his Australian tour which will also hit Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne and the Gold Coast.
“I love Australia … and it’s going to be six party nights and everybody will be up on their feet,” Ocean said.
The Rastafarian star will be joined on stage by his super band with many memorable hits to be performed such as When the Going Gets Tough, Get outta My Dreams, Suddenly, Love Really Hurts Without You, Loverboy and There'll Be Sad Songs.
In 2002, Ocean was awarded an honorary doctorate of music by the University of Westminster in London. Then in 2010, he was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the MOBO Awards.
