Mari Wilson: The Pop Deluxe Tour
20th February 2020
Mari’s back on tour in 2020 with her stellar musicians to bring you a collection from her body of work over the years. Expect a “best of” featuring songs from all her albums including 1982’s Showpeople through to 2016’s Pop Deluxe and a few unusual surprises. Not forgetting the glamour Mari is known for!
Mari’s live performances have become legendary since first arriving on the scene in 1982 with her 12 piece band, The Wilsations and her skyscraper beehive hairdo. Celebrated as The Neasden Queen of Soul, she had six hit singles, including her biggest hit, Just What I’ve Always Wanted, from the cult album, Showpeople.
Mari has continued to enjoy a diverse career of writing, touring and musical theatre as well as releasing more albums, the most recent being Pop Deluxe, an album of songs by the female singers she was influenced by – Dusty Springfield, Petula Clark and others – all presented in a uniquely Mari Wilson fashion. In 2018 Mari wrote the song Moon and Back, for US TV Show The Young and The Restless which was nominated for an Emmy.
Mari’s sell-out shows are always guaranteed to charm and beguile with her soulful, emotional voice, witty anecdotes and the ability to create an intimate bond with her audience.
“Mari’s relationship with her audience is quite extraordinary. she is witty, graceful, and often humble.” Gay Times
