With a staggering 103 album releases, a record-breaking 123 single hits and the equivalent of 20 years spent in the UK charts, this year sees Sir Cliff celebrate his 60th anniversary in the music business.

And to mark the milestone, the Congratulations singer will be appearing on the big screen on Friday, October 12.

Performing live at the Manchester Bridgewater Hall, the concert will be streamed to over 700 cinema screens across the UK and Ireland, allowing fans to watch the star perform in real time.

Encore screenings will take place on Sunday, October 14 at 3pm on Sir Cliff’s 78th birthday.

The Odeon Hatfield at The Galleria and Stevenage’s Cineworld are among the multiplexes showing the Cliff concert live.

Presented by CinemaLive, leading producers and distributors of Event Cinema, Cliff Richard Live: 60th Anniversary Tour will be broadcast direct via satellite.

Sir Cliff said “This 60th anniversary year is such a very special one for me, with an album release of exciting new tracks in the autumn, and to be able to bring my show live to cinemas around the UK is an absolute thrill.

“I have the most wonderful fans and to be able to share this special evening live in Manchester with so many people is such a gift.

“I really will feel like I am with everyone that night, I can’t wait.”

The only British pop artist to have number one hits in every decade from the 1950s to the end of the 20th century, Cliff Richard is a musical icon.

From rock tracks like Devil Woman to ballads like Miss You Nights – not to mention the UK’s best-loved Christmas songs – his music has been a constant for generations of people.

Cliff Richard Live: 60th Anniversary Tour, distributed by CinemaLive, will be broadcast at 8pm on Friday, October 12.

Tickets are on sale now.
