Lighthouse Family

One of the largest British bands of the 90s – Lighthouse Family – will visit Hull next year as part of a major UK tour.

The band, known for the huge track ‘Lifted’, will visit the Bonus Arena on Saturday, 22 February 2020. 

Tunde Baiyewu and Paul Tucker formed Lighthouse Family after meeting at Newcastle University in the early 1990s. Their 1995 debut album ‘Ocean Drive’ was a slow-burning success, going six times platinum while staying in the album charts for almost three years. ‘Lifted’ became one the defining songs of the era, a pop-soul classic that was inescapable on radio, becoming the soundtrack of high street Britain, drivetime Britain and night -out Britain.

The 1997 follow-up, ‘Postcards From Heaven’, featured three Top Ten singles – ‘Raincloud’, ‘High’ and ‘Lost in Space’ – and also went six - times platinum, charting across Europe, the Far East, Australia and New Zealand.

Their third album, ‘Whatever Gets You Through The Day’ (2001) produced another Top Ten single in the shape of ‘(I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be) Free/One’,

Fourth album ‘Blue Sky In Your Head’ will be released on May 3rd on Polydor and will include ‘Essentials’, all the band’s classic songs remastered for the very first time to celebrate their 25-year recording history.  The lead single is ‘My Salvation’, a lushly melodic track every bit as good as you’d expect from the band.
