ALEXANDER O’NEAL

After nearly five decades in the business, it is with great excitement that legendary singer Alexander O’Neal heads out on his Time to Say Goodbye: Farewell World Tour.

 

The beloved soul star is hitting the road one final time, with farewell dates to extend until mid-2024.Time to Say Goodbye takes the audience on a wonderful journey through his incredible career with never-before-seen-photos, testimonies, and tributes, all set to the tune of some of Alex’s most beloved songs from his legendary catalogue including Criticize, Fake, and If You Were Here Tonight.

Boasting a soulful yet tough voice noted to have the same grain and range as that of Otis Redding, Alexander O’Neal is comfortable with pumping dancefloor burners and slinky couch-cuddlers. The strength of his material and his robust vocals can be heard on his many chart-topping releases including 1985’s eponymous debut Alexander O’Neal, 1987’s smash hit album Hearsay, 1991’s All True Man, and 1998’s Lovers Again.

Accompanied by his exemplary 9-piece live band, there won’t be a dry eye in the house as audiences come together to celebrate the legacy of Alexander O’Neal.
