Sophie Ellis-Bextor - The Kitchen Disco Tour Comes To The North

Sophie Ellis-Bextor will bring her Kitchen Disco from the screen to the stage this March, with her highly-anticipated Kitchen Disco Tour 2022.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s now infamous live Instagram Kitchen Discos during Covid-19 were means of virtual escapism.

Underneath the family’s sparkling kitchen disco ball, Sophie, her husband Richard Jones (who also plays bass in Sophie’s live band), and their children’s family exuberance put a smile on the face of the hundreds of thousands watching live on Instagram. The individual videos of songs from the performances also garnered millions of views on Twitter.

The shows led to Sophie’s second greatest hits compilation ‘Songs from the Kitchen Disco’, which was released in November 2020 and went Top 10 in the UK Album Charts.

Now Sophie will bring these shows to life for the very first time with her Kitchen Disco Tour; bringing together all of the camp and frivolity of her original show to live stages across the north.

Holiday Sidewinder has been added as a special guest for the tour, bringing her unique brand of tongue-in-cheek pop to get the party started with tracks from her 2018 album ‘Forever or Whatever’, and last year’s ‘Face of God’, which was listed as one of NME’s top Australian albums of the year.
