VMS Live & Sheffield Students' Union Present PAUL YOUNG. Plus special guests: CHINA CRISIS
It is with regret that the 8th February 2018 Paul Young concert will be postponed following the passing of his wife Stacey.
The singer Paul Young has today announced that his wife, Stacey Young, sadly passed away today after a two-year fight with brain cancer.
Stacy died peacefully at home surrounded by family, friends and her four children: Levi, Layla, Grady and Jude.
The family respectfully ask for privacy at this time.
We hope to reschedule the tour and will announce new dates as soon as possible.
We thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions about the concert and when it will be rescheduled contact Sheffield SU Box Office.
Paul Antony Young is an English singer, songwriter and musician. Formerly the frontman of the short-lived bands Kat Kool & the Kool Cats, Streetband and Q-Tips, his subsequent solo success turned him into a 1980s teen idol. He is famous for such hit singles as "Love of the Common People", "Wherever I Lay My Hat", "Come Back and Stay", "Everytime You Go Away" and "Everything Must Change", all reaching the top 10 of the UK Singles Chart. Released in 1983, his debut album No Parlez, the first of three UK number one albums, turned him into a household name. His smooth yet soulful voice belonged to a genre known as "blue-eyed soul". At the 1985 Brit Awards, Young received the award for Best British Male.
In July 1985, Young appeared at Live Aid held at Wembley Stadium, London, performing the Band Aid hit "Do They Know It's Christmas?" (having sung the opening lines on the original single release), and his own hits "Come Back and Stay" and "Everytime You Go Away", with Alison Moyet joining him on stage to perform "That's The Way Love Is". "Everytime You Go Away" reached number one in the US in 1985, and won Best British Video at the 1986 Brit Awards.
