To mark the 25th anniversary of T’Pau’s breakthrough album, the quadruple platinum selling ‘Bridge Of Spies’, Carol Decker will be embarking on a full UK tour.

The flame-haired singer will bring her amazing concert to the Victoria Theatre, Halifax on Saturday, May 11.

Carol and her band will perform legendary hits including ‘China in Your Hand’ and ‘Heart And Soul’, as well as a selection of popular album tracks.

Carol Decker first appeared on the music scene in 1987 fronting the successful pop/rock band.

Instantly memorable with a huge voice and a mass of red hair,she made an undeniable impact on the public.

The band’s debut album, ‘Bridge Of Spies’, went quadruple platinum and spawned a string of worldwide hits, including ‘Heart and Soul’, which stayed on the US Billboard chart for six months, peaking at number four and, of course, most notably ‘China In Your Hand’, which occupied the number one slot in the UK for five weeks. Carol is celebrating her 25th year in the music business in 2013 and touring with a brand new line-up of T’Pau.

The concert starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £19.50 and £17.50 (plus £1 theatre support fee), available online at or from the theatre box office on 01422 351158.

But if comedy is more your scene, the theatre has a line-up of big names to tickle your funnybone this month.

Tonight and tomorrow Bill Bailey presents his Qualmpeddler show (8pm), featuring all the classic elements of musical mash-ups and multi-lingual riffs as well as silliness on a grand scale.

On Friday, May 10, Roy Chubby Brown returns to the theatre carrying a warning: “If easily offended, please stay away!”

With his trademark flamboyant patchwork suit and flying helmet, he promises his “bluest show yet” (7.30pm).

On Thursday, May 16, Micky Flanagan visits the theatre for the first time with his Back in the Game tour (8pm).
