Billy Ocean is one of the most successful soul-pop stars to have emerged from the British music scene. Originally from Trinidad and Tobago, Billy, formerly called Leslie Charles, moved to Romford, Essex, and followed in his musician father's footsteps, singing in clubs as a teen where he was discovered.
With a successful, carefully honed sound, he impresses far and wide; American artists like R. Kelly have queued up to work with him, and all sorts have recorded his hits like When the Going Gets Tough and Love Really Hurts Without You.
He hit the charts on a global scale, continuously innovating with the times, finding common ground with the growing trend towards RnB in the USA.
He is still touring the world, over forty years since he first starting gigging and writing bona fide chart hits. He remains one of the greatest musical artists in the world, and he'll be sure to bring his A-game to this gig at Vicar Street.
