The singer of Soft Cell is climbing back on stage! In 2020, Marc Almond released his 24th studio album called 'Chaos And A Dancing Star'. So expect a lot of new work tonight, but also a selection of 'top singles' from his repertoire, such as 'Say Hello, Wave Goodbye', 'Something's Gotten Hold of my Heart', 'Days of Pearly Spencer' and of course 'Tainted Love'.
Almond gained great fame in the 1980s as a successful singles artist. His big dream was to follow in the footsteps of his great examples David Bowie and Scott Walker and to make the 'single' an icon of the record industry in their style. He succeeded with flying colors when he released the song 'Tainted Love' in 1981, which was immediately good for a top spot in the UK Chart and became the best-selling single of the year. Singles became his specialty and a total of 30 million (!) records and albums sold says enough about his musical qualities.
