Birmingham date for soul legend.
Legendary soul singer Millie Jackson is set for a pre-Valentine Night date at the Drum in Aston. With a career spanning more than three decades, the singer known for her sexually explicit, racy, rap style fused with soul will be performing at the venue on Sunday 7th February 2016 as part of a UK mini-tour.
Head of Marketing and Arts at The Drum, Jennie Gentles, grew up listening to Millie Jackson and says, “When I was little I remember my sisters sneaking Millie Jackson albums into the house so my mum wouldn’t see. They’d listen to them when she’d gone to work but said I was too young so I had to listen through the door! You can’t imagine how excited I am that we actually have her performing exclusively at The Drum – it’s such a coup I still can’t quite believe it! She’s a fantastic artist, performer and true legend.”
The Drum performance will be the only public date on her UK tour and with limited seats available is sure to be a sell-out.
Tickets, priced £26 can be purchased by calling The Drum Box Office on 0121 333 2444, or via www.the-drum.org.uk.
