Disco-rock entertainer Leo Sayer is returning to the British shores which will see him perform in Swindon!

Leo Sayer will be bringing his 'Just A Boy at 70' tour to Swindon's Wyvern Theatre, Thursday 2 May.

Sayer will begin the first leg of his tour in his current homeland of Australia, which will then see him take the second leg to the UK including Swindon.

Leo, who celebrates his birthday during the second, UK leg of the tour, has had an extensive career in the music industry dating back to the mid-sixties, starting out with David Courtney and Adam Faith – and he wanted to be a graphic designer. 

Now performing in what will be his sixth decade as a musician Leo has racked up eleven UK Top Ten (two number one) and four US Top Ten (two, consecutive number one) hit singles; six UK Top Ten (one number one) and one US Top Ten album; a Gold Badge of Merit; and a Grammy Award, in 1977, for You Make Me Feel Like Dancing, winning the award for ‘Best Rhythm and Blues Song.’

The musician and entertainer has also appeared on The Muppet Show, The Wiggles (DVD), Celebrity Big Brother UK, and had a mention on The Simpsons.

Leo said: “I count myself very lucky to have a wonderful band at home in the UK.

“I always look forward to coming back to perform. 

“From Soho to Brighton by way of Cornwall to Glasgow, I like searching out all the places I used to haunt and see if they’ve changed, many haven’t at all, under the surface.

“It’s going to be another great tour and I’m looking forward to the shows immensely.”

In addition to his UK tour Leo also releases his brand-new album, ‘Selfie,’ on 26 April through Demon Music Group. A 15-track LP will be printed as a Vinyl, Limited Edition pressed on heavyweight 180g pink vinyl.
