Gabrielle will be marking the 30th anniversary of her smash hit Dreams when she heads to Norfolk next week.

The singer-songwriter, who has won a plethora of awards during her career, is bringing her R&B and pop to the UEA, Norwich, on Tuesday, October 10, as part of her 30 Years Of Dreaming Tour.

Gabrielle released her best-known stuff during the first eight years of her career, and much of the show is likely to based around those early days. Other big hits from back then include Give Me A Little More Time, Rise and Out Of Reach.

But she’s also put out a couple of albums in recent years, and another one – A Place In Your Heart – is expected to drop next year.

Along the way, the 54-year-old has won scooped up Brit, Black Music and Ivor Novello awards, among others, and has earned nominations for many more.

Gabrielle will also be playing a couple of other dates in East Anglia. She’s due to perform a sold-out show at Cambridge Corn Exchange on Monday, October 23, and she’ll be at Ipswich’s Regent Theatre on Sunday, November 5.

“Going on tour to celebrate 30 years of Dreams is just amazing,” she said.

“I can’t wait to party with everyone and celebrate the record that launched my career three decades ago. Time sure does fly when you are having fun.”

Support will come from Wallis Bird and Skinny Living.
