Multi-award winning DJ royalty - Trevor Nelson - will be returning to the West Country for a night of Classic R&B and Soul live in the New Year.

Announcing a date at Swindon’s MECA venue 12 April 2020, Trevor Nelson’s Soul Nation will be packing the hall with all the irresistibly slick and smooth stylings of R&B.

With a career that spans decades, Trevor Nelson holds an irrefutable cornerstone in UK music history.  From his very beginnings on London pirate radio nurturing what would become Kiss FM, through to his work on The Soul Show and his prime-time BBC Radio 1/ R1 Extra weekend stints, Nelson has introduced listeners across the nation to cutting-edge sounds from the worlds of Soul, R&B, Reggae and beyond.

Immediately identifiable as a much-loved presenting personality too, Trevor joined the ranks of MTV in 1998 to host their flagship R&B show ‘The Lick’ for 11 years on MTV Base (which remains the channel’s longest running show to date), whilst also being granted the honour of hosting the first ever MTV Africa Awards from Abuja in Nigeria.

A hugely successful DJ both in the studio and behind the decks, Trevor has released a number of hit compilation albums including: INCredible Sound of Trevor Nelson, The Soul Nation, several “Lick” compilations, The Trevor Nelson Collection, and most recently his Trevor Nelson Club Classics.

In recognition of his years of dedicated service to the music he has committed his life to, Nelson has won numerous plaudits throughout his career including 4 MOBOS, the Special Gold Lifetime Achievement award for his services to broadcasting at the 2010 Sony Radio Academy Awards, and even an MBE for his work with the millennium volunteers.

Trevor Nelson Soul Nation will see the DJ sharing his music in the live arena. Sure to feature a blend of sleek, sultry records with soul from the past three decades of his career, Trevor will keep the dance floor bouncing all night long at this unmissable show.

A rare opportunity to see one of UK’s soul masters spin his sorcery, tickets are expected to sell quickly and fans are advised grab theirs quickly to avoid disappointment.
