DAVID GEST’S SOUL LEGENDS REUNITE FOR UK TOUR!
For the past decade music lovers have enjoyed performances from soul legends in a unique show created by the one and only David Gest. Each year he brought together a host of music icons who sang the songs which made them famous - few concerts have been packed with so many legendary hits and it was a real tragedy when we lost David in April 2016. There was a possibility we’d never see such events again, but David Gest Limited is proud to reveal that in 2019 the shows will continue! Davis Gest Soul Legends Tour comes to the Auditorium at M&S Bank Arena Liverpool in May 2019.
