Hazel O'Connor Tickets
Hazel O'Connor has been known as one of the UK's leading singers and actresses for several decades. Known for folk music and new age hits like 'Eighth Day' and 'Will You', O'Connor has also made a name for herself by appearing in movies, stage productions, and musical tours across the world.
O'Connor is taking to the stage across the UK, and she will showcase her musical chops in more than a dozen cities on the way. O'Connor will start out at Tithe Barn in Bishops Cleeve, followed by stops in Cirencester, Milton Keynes, Bracknell, London, Deal, Kings Somborne, Crick, Hebden Bridge, Sheffield, Runcorn and Uttoxeter. She will finish off her travelling and performing stint at the Willowman Festival in Thirsk, UK.
O'Connor ran away from her home in Coventry in 1971, when she was 16 years old. She spent time travelling through different countries -- working in Amsterdam, France, Tokyo, Beirut, West Africa, and more, before returning to the UK. Once she was in the U.K., she began her acting and performing career, which ultimately led her to have success both in performance and recording.
Hazel O'Connor might have begun her ascent to stardom by appearing in the movie Breaking Glass in 1980, but it was her combination of performance and musical prowess that got the attention of fans across the UK and the world. After adventurous teenage and young adult years, O'Connor started out acting in England, booking small film roles until she starred in Breaking Glass, for which she also wrote the music. After that soundtrack, which went double platinum, O'Connor began to write more records and tour internationally, performing shows on stages across the world. O'Connor has continued to act while she makes music, appearing in plays like The Cuchulain Cycle at Riverside Studio in London and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest at the Royal Exchange in Manchester.
It is, without a doubt, Breaking Glass that made Hazel O'Connor a big star. Not only was she showcased as an acting talent in the film, but her music (she ended up writing nearly the whole sound track) received tons of attention for its prowess. The album went double platinum, and it launched her to a two-pronged tour: acting and singing. The album had multiple hit singles, and it reached the No. 5 spot on the UK albums chart.
Breaking Glass O'Connor's biggest hit, with multiple single hits and multiple weeks on the hit charts. Other albums of O'Connor that did well in the UK include Cover Plus, released in 1981, which reached the No. 32 spot on the UK chart. O'Connor has had several singles which hit it big, including 'Eight Day', 'D-Days', and 'Will You', each of which hit the top 10 on the UK's singles charts.
O'Connor is a folk and new age singer, so her concerts tend to be low-key experiences with awesome, catchy tunes to listen to, as well as beautiful vocals. Those with Hazel O'Connor tickets should not expect an upbeat dance concert, but instead, an engaging event in which O'Connor speaks about her work to the audience, then performs it with an inspiring power and stillness."
