Alexander O’Neal set to appear at Parr Hall in final tour

After almost a century in show business, the legendary singer-songwriter is set to grace the stage across the globe one final time.

The beloved American soul star, who came to prominence in the mid-80s with hits like If You Were Here Tonight, Criticize and Fake, is embarking on his ‘Time To Say Goodbye: Farewell World Tour’.

That will include a run of dates in the UK in 2024, with a Parr Hall show on May 9. It was, in fact, in the UK where Alexander gained his biggest following with 14 top-40 singles and three top-10 albums in the 80s and 90s.
