Hazel O'Connor

Thu 1st August 2019
North Pier Theatre Blackpool, Blackpool, FY1 1NE


The first major female star of the 80’s, award winning singer-songwriter Hazel O'Connor presents Breaking Glass Live - preceded by a very special unplugged prelude performance of some of Hazel's very own 'Hallelujah Moments' along the way.

Accompanied here by her stunning band The Subterraneans, Hazel is joined by
virtuoso saxophonist Clare Hirst (The Belle Stars, Communards, David Bowie) on sax and vocals and the wonderful Sarah Fisher (Eurythmics) on keyboards and vocals.

The powerful blend of voices and musicianship brings a classy touch of energy to Hazel’s vibrant performance.

Striding into the spotlight, with her lead role in Dodi Fayed's cult movie Breaking Glass in 1980, Hazel immediately became an iconic figure as well as a BAFTA nominated actress. There were hits and eye-catching Top of The Pops appearances aplenty along the way. Hazel's ageless songs from the iconic film include Eighth Day, Will You, Big Brother, Monsters in Disguise, Calls The Tune, If Only, Give Me An Inch, Blackman and Hanging Around - all of which seem even more relevant in our present times. With a special Meet & Greet immediately after the show you're in for a treat. Unmissable, book early!
