The Brand New Heavies Announce Brother Sister Tour To Celebrate 30 Years

Released in 1994, The Brand New Heavies’ third album Brother Sister changed everything for the band. Propelled by the classic singles Dream On Dreamer, Midnight At The Oasis and Back To Love, the record achieved huge success (a #4 chart position, over a million sales and a BRIT nomination) as they cemented their position as the pioneers of Acid Jazz. Still sounding as fresh and timeless as it did back then, The Brand New Heavies have announced celebrate the album’s 30th anniversary with the announcement of the Brother Sister 30 tour.

Featuring original members Andrew Levy and Simon Bartholomew with the phenomenal vocalist Angela Ricci, the tour will see The Brand New Heavies perform Brother Sister in full alongside other hits and fan favourites from their storied history with a complete live band.

The band says, “We can’t believe that Brother Sister is going to be 30 years young! What better way to celebrate than coming to see us play the album in its entirety as well as all our hits.”

Since debuting in 1990, The Brand New Heavies have translated their love of sophisticated ’70s funk grooves into an ever evolving sound that has ignited dancefloors and inspired fans for over thirty years. Their huge success with Brother Sister continued with the follow-up Shelter, another Top 5 Platinum-certified album that featured further hits in the shape of Sometimes, You Are The Universe and their take on You’ve Got A Friend. Their legacy has continued to grow with consistently strong albums ever since, including 2019’s TBNH which featured their first recordings with Angela Ricci.

2023 saw The Brand New Heavies enter a new era of rediscovery with the release of Never Stop… The Best Of. They also embarked upon the sold-out Never Stop… The Greatest Hits tour, for which they were accompanied by the London Concert Orchestra.
