Eddi Reader, considered one of Scotland’s greatest female voices and performers of all time, will return to the stage at Perth Concert Hall.

Celebrating nearly half a century of music, the 40 Years Live Tour will see Eddi bring his signature voice to the Fair City on Friday, April 1.

Encompassing his wide variety of work over the years, the highly anticipated show promises to be an “outstanding evening of entertainment”. Eddi will reminisce and share music from the past 40 years, while looking forward to many more to come.

“I’m delighted to be bringing this extra-special show to fans in Perth this spring,” said Eddi.

“The last 40 years have been a remarkable experience – I still can’t believe it really lasted that long. I’ve been lucky enough to meet and work with amazing musicians over the years, many of whom have become lifelong friends.

“I’ve also seen a lot of changes in the industry, a lot of people coming and going. Throughout it all, the music itself and my love of sharing it with people has been the constant driving force.

From his early years playing folk clubs in the West of Scotland to his huge international success with his band Fairground Attraction, Eddi’s musical direction has taken many unexpected twists over the years.

First rising to fame as a backing vocalist for bands like Eurythmics and Gang of Four, Eddi then joined Fairground Attraction, which stormed the charts in the late 1980s with their debut album First of a Million Kisses.

The accompanying single, Perfect, was a number one hit in the UK and won the band “Best Single” at the 1989 BRIT Awards.

Throughout his successful solo career, Eddi has released highly acclaimed albums such as The Songs of Robert Burns and 2018’s Cavalier.

Over the past four decades, she has received four honorary degrees, an MBE, performed for millions on some of the world’s biggest concert and festival stages, and collaborated with a host of stars in a myriad of genres including folk, jazz, pop, worldwork, punk and even classical with various orchestras.
