Live in Concert

Strictly over 14s only / Under 16s with an adult / Photographic ID may be required for entry

On Friday the 5th of December, the influential soul train trio that is Shalamar is coming The Ritz in Manchester for a very special performance that one of only very few UK dates this year.

Shalamar are the dance trio spearheaded by Don Cornelius, the creator of the Soul Train show that was on air for over 30 years from 1971. As one of the more influential groups of their era, Shalamar were trendsetters in both fashion and dancing, being some of the first to bring body popping to the UK. Gaining there first hit with ‘Uptown Festival’ Shalamar continued to release a string of well-received singles in the UK including ‘Take That To The Bank’ and ‘A Night To Remember’. In the years that followed the group were met with Gold and Platinum albums as well as a Grammy Award, some of which were won after the bands members changed, happening from time to time. In October 2010, the reformed Shalamar of Hewett, Daniel and Griffey toured the UK, now the trio are coming back to Manchester to show The Ritz that they are still amongst the best. 

Manchester’s The Ritz was first built in 1928 as a classical music venue for revellers who would gather together there and dance. Now, since the grade II listed building underwent a £2 million refurbishment, it has become one of the most popular clubbing and live music venues in Manchester, with regular appearances from some of the worlds biggest and best artists such as The Happy Mondays, The Stone Roses and The Beatles, as well as a number of clubbing venues that return an a regular basics. Boasting a sizeable yet intimate capacity, The Ritz still dons many of its original features including the balconies and attractive décor, however with a now state of the art lighting and sound system, it will give Shalamar an extra boost to make their comeback sound even more spectacular.
