Northern Dates For Christina Aguilera
by Geoff Ford
Record-breaking global superstar Christina Aguilera has announced she’s heading back to the UK for just three headline shows this August including a date on the Yorkshire coast and a visit to Liverpool.
The singer, songwriter, producer and entrepreneur -not to mention one of the best-selling artists in the world – Christina will be bringing her iconic vocals and dance routines to Scarborough Open Air Theatre on August 2 and Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena on August 3, before continuing on to London’s The O2 Arena on August 5.
More than 20 years after her self-titled debut album, Christina Aguilera has established herself, globally, as one of the biggest and most recognised solo female artists. She has sold more than 43 million records worldwide, collected more than 18 million Spotify listens, received more than three billion YouTube views and achieved five No.1 U.S singles, making her the fourth female artist to top the charts over three consecutive decades (1990s, 2000s, and 2010s),
Renowned for her powerful voice and hit singles, Christina Aguilera is a Grammy Award winner, received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame back in 2010 and holds the prestigious honour of being the only artist under the age of 30 included in Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of the 100 greatest singers of all time.
Aguilera continues to use her voice for good. She has served as global spokesperson for World Hunger Relief effort since 2009 and has helped raise over $150 million for the World Food Program and other hunger relief agencies.
Aguilera’s UK Tour dates follow the release of her new singe Pa Mis Muchachas, her much anticipated return to her Latin roots. Returning to Spanish-language music, the song celebrates Latina sisterhood by featuring global Latin music superstar Becky G, explosive Argentinian rising star Nicki Nicole and Spain-based provoking songwriter and rapper Nathy Peluso. The Latin Grammy Award Winner is set to make another major mark on Latin music and culture as only she can.
Scarborough Open Air Theatre’s live music programmer Peter Taylor is delighted to be bringing another global star to Britain’s biggest open air concert arena, following the visits of Britney Spears in 2018 and Kylie Minogue in 2019.
“Christina Aguilera is a music superstar and true global icon and we are absolutely thrilled to announce she is coming to Scarborough this summer!” said Peter. “Christina is only playing a handful of shows in the UK, so to bring her here is another major coup for Scarborough Open Air Theatre and the Yorkshire coast.
“First Britney, then Kylie and now Christina, three incredible women on the global stage, all headlining this special venue. Roll on August 2nd, this is going to be one of the must-see shows of the summer!”
Fans can expect all the hits including Dirrty, Ain’t No Other Man, Fighter and Genie in a Bottle along with more arena-filling anthems this August.
