Lighthouse Family to shine at GrandWest

The Lighthouse Family will perform in South Africa for the first time at the Grand Arena, GrandWest, on 24 March.

This band sold ten million records over the past 25 years. The duo, Tunde Baiyewu and Paul Tucker, formed Lighthouse Family at Newcastle University in the early 1990s. After releasing three albums, they went their separate ways in the early 2000s. Now, almost 20 years later, they have joined forces again to release their fourth album.

Their first album Ocean Drive, released in 1995, went six times platinum and stayed on the album charts for three years, selling 2.75 million copies.

They released their second album Postcards from Heaven in 1997, with three top-ten singles –Raincloud, High and Lost in Space – and two top-30 hits. The album also went six times platinum, charting across Europe, the Far East, Australia and New Zealand, selling four million albums globally.

Their third album Whatever Gets You Through The Day, released in 2001, produced the top-10 single I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be.

Three years ago, the two began working on their fourth album, Blue Sky In Your Head.

They have produced this with the same team they used when they were at their radio-dominating peak, including Colin Barlow, the talent scout who discovered them, and Keith Armstrong, their first manager.

“This is such a good 90s band with so many memorable hits,” says Elouise Matthys, spokesperson for GrandWest. “The frontman, Baiyewu, has an incredible, almost effortless, soulful voice that you can’t help enjoying. I am looking forward to their latest album.”

Tickets are available from Computicket and Big Concerts, starting from R515. Doors open at 19:30 and the show starts at 20:30.
