CONCERTS are that golden opportunity to enjoy your favourite singers’ music live and, if you are lucky, to meet them too.

Here is a round up of some music legends taking to the Cliffs Pavilion stage next year.

Adam Ant

Pop sensation Adam Ant will be at the Station Road theatre as part of his 17-day UK tour ANTMUSIC 2024.

The musician, best known for his string of hits, such as Prince Charming and Stand and Deliver, will be stopping in the city on October 19.

Tickets for the show are available but the front centre stalls are sold out.

There are two sets left in the left stalls and 14 on the right-hand-side.

Elsewhere, there is limited availability in the boxes and a good number in the rear stalls and balcony.

Admission for the show is priced at £51.25 or £46.25, depending on which pass band is selected.

Happy Mondays

Multi-award-winning Manchester rock band the Happy Mondays are performing at the Cliffs Pavilion next year on their big 16-day UK tour – the first in five years.

The group, formed by frontman Shaun Ryder, percussion master Mark “Bez” Berry, vocalist Rowetta, guitarist Mark Day, drummer Gary Whelan, and keyboard player and guitarist Dan Broad, are playing on April 7.

Supporting the band is fellow rockers Inspiral Carpets, one of the most popular bands to come out of the late 80s/early 90s Madchester scene.

Also, Nottingham’s hip hop and electronic dance group Stereo Mc’s will be performing their 1992 international top 20 hit Connected, among others.

The show, which is offering seated, which is limited, and standing ticket options, starts at 7pm.

Passes for either option is £45.25.

Paloma Faith

British superstar Paloma Faith is gearing up to sing to the Station Road theatre crowd on May 15.

Southend is the 22nd stop on her 26-day UK tour the Glorification of Sadness, which takes the same name of her new album.

It is her most personal album to date, drawing on her own experiences with Paloma acting as the anchor to direct a deeply personal narrative and album.

Doors for the show open at 7pm, and under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

Due to popular demand, the show is completely sold out.

Gladys Knight

The American singing legend nicknamed the “empress of soul” will be coming to Southend on July 3.

The Station Road theatre took to Facebook on October 3 to confirm the 79-year-old is coming to as a stop on her farewell tour.

She found fame by winning Ted Mack’s the Original Amateur Hour TV show, a popular talent contest, in 1952, aged seven.

The show starts at 7.30pm and is a complete sell-out.
