Pride favourite Sophie Ellis-Bextor is set to return to Bristol for Pride and we can’t wait!
She shot to fame as a vocalist on Spiller’s huge number one single Groovejet and then followed it up with Take Me Home and her worldwide smash hit, Murder on the Dancefloor.
Her double-platinum solo debut album, Read My Lips has sold more than 2 million copies worldwide and subsequent album releases include Shoot from the Hip (2003), Trip the Light Fantastic (2007) and Make a Scene(2011).
In 2014, in a departure from her previous dance pop albums, Sophie embarked on her debut singer/songwriter album Wanderlust with Ed Harcourt at the helm to critical and commercial success: certified Gold in the UK and spending 3 weeks in the UK top 10 album chart and spawning hits such as Young Blood. 2016’s Familia album saw her return to the dance floor with Come With Us.
Spring 2018 saw a release orchestrated versions of all her hits and past single releases which have come together in the release of the upcoming album The Song Diaries which will be released later this month.
We are so excited to have Sophie performing at Pride this year and know we are in for a truly special show.
