Sophie Ellis-Bextor has added new dates to her 2021 Kitchen Disco Tour, with shows in Nottingham, Newcastle, Basingstoke and Bath.
The tour will now call at Nottingham Royal Concert Hall on 5th May, O2 City Hall Newcastle on 6th May, Basingstoke The Anvil on 11th May, and The Forum in Bath on 14th May. Pre-sale for tickets to these shows will be available on 8th October at 10am from Ticketmaster and the venue box offices, and general sale from 9th October at 10am.
Sophie’s Instagram Live Kitchen Disco’s during the Covid-19 lockdown were a means of virtual escapism for many, and became weekly moments of united sequined catharsis for the hundreds of thousands tuning in.
Now as we emerge into the world again, Sophie will bring these shows to life with her Kitchen Disco Tour in 2021; bringing together all of the camp and frivolity of her original show to live stages across the country.
On the Kitchen Disco Tour, Sophie Said: “During lockdown, our family kitchen discos became a precious time where we could all bop about and be a bit silly. It made me feel connected to everyone who joined us and I can honestly say the music was a real tonic which brought sparkly joy to my soul every Friday. The discos we shared have inspired me and now I want to see all your faces so I can sing for you. I want to give everyone a night where just for a little while, we can all lose ourselves under the mirror ball and dance and have fun. Won’t that feel magical?! I CANNOT WAIT!”
The weekly live Instagram streams brought together the two main roles Sophie balances in her life: performer and mother. Underneath the family’s sparkling kitchen disco ball, Sophie, her husband Richard Jones (who also plays bass in Sophie’s live band), and their children’s familial exuberance put a smile on the face of the hundreds of thousands watching live on Instagram. The individual videos of songs from the performances also garnered millions of views on Twitter.
Looking forward to 2021, the Live Kitchen Disco Tour will bring the virtual to life, cooking-up classic glitter ball staples and Sophie’s own dancefloor-beckoning bangers from across her seven albums, as well as a variety of well-known classics including Our House by Madness and My Favourite Things from the Sound of Music, in a thoroughly domestic Studio-54 sensation for disco divas of all ages.
Ahead of these incredible live dates Sophie will release a new album Songs From The Kitchen Disco on 23rd October, which will be a collection of the songs that soundtracked her lockdown kitchen disco. The album will feature all of Sophie’s biggest and best-known disco hits in one place for the first time ever! Available on various colourful and collectable formats (CD, Double Vinyl LP and Tape) the album will include 6 Top 10 hits, including Murder On The Dancefloor and Take Me Home. The album can be pre-ordered now from here.
Sophie also recently launched her new podcast, Spinning Plates, with each one hour episode featuring an interview with another working mother about the difficulties and joys of a work/life balance. With episodes so far featuring Fearne Cotton and Caitlin Moran, the podcast has already become Apple’s number one Parenting podcast everywhere from the UK to Greece to Ecuador.
