Billy Ocean: 40 years, 30 million records sold
Born Leslie Charles in Trinidad, Billy Ocean moved to England when he was seven years old. Inspired by the likes of Sam Cooke and Otis Redding, his love of music was apparent from an early age. By his teens Billy Ocean was regularly performing at clubs in London's East End.
1976 saw the release of his eponymous-titled debut album, spawning the singer's first successful single: "Love Really Hurts Without You". Reaching number two on the UK charts, Billy Ocean followed the release with a succession of albums before being recognised by international star LaToya Jackson.
Recruiting Billy Ocean to write a track, "Stay the Night", for her 1980 debut album, the Calypso-inspired artist went on to break America with the million-selling double platinum single "Caribbean Queen" in 1984 – the most successful of any of Billy Ocean's songs.
Announcing his new tour dates Ocean said: Billy said: "I’m really looking forward to my UK tour next year, it’s going to be 13 party nights."
Last year, he released Here You Are: The Best Of Billy Ocean in the UK, which gained a top four spot in the charts – his highest since 1989. The new tour will feature the latest material from his new album, which is set for release in 2018.
