Where: West St, Oldham, OL1 1QJ

An all-star line-up of rhythm and blues legends comes to Oldham’s Queen Elizabeth Hall.
The original Grammy Award-Winning Temptations lead singer Dennis Edwards (‘Papa Was A Rollin’ Stone’ & ‘I Can’t Get Next To You’) performing with The Temptations Review, Percy Sledge (‘When A Man Loves A Woman’), Candi Stanton (‘You Got The Love’ & ‘Young Hearts Run Free’), CeCe Peniston (Finally), the Three Degrees original lead singer Sheila Ferguson (‘When Will I See You Again’), Shalamar lead singer Jody Watley (‘Lookin’ For A New Love), Rose Royce original lead singer Gwen Dickey (‘Car Wash’ & ‘Wishing On A Star’), Stax Records legend Eddie Floyd (‘Knock On Wood’), Philly soul great Eddie Holman (‘Hey There Lonely Girl’) and in his first UK tour, ‘Rock ‘N Roll Hall Of Fame’ icon, Little Anthony (‘Tears On My Pillow’ & ‘Goin’ Out Of My Head’) are among those on the star-studded bill of ‘David Gest’s Legends of Soul Live Concert!’.
The musical spectacular on Wednesday, February 19, 2014, at Oldham Council’s flagship venue will see Gest bring ten master artists who have collectively sold more than 100 million records.
The legendary producer and television star – who graced our screens on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here in 2006 – will also be teaming up with soul songtress Candi Stanton in a bid to hunt for a UK talent who will be signed to record a new single with the renowned singer – which will be produced by Gest himself.
He will be bringing up members of the audience who will have the chance to sing with the ‘You Got The Love’ singer and show off their vocal talents – which could lead to bigger things for one lucky talent.
Queen Elizabeth Hall offers more than 15,000 square foot of space capable of accommodating up to 1,500 people for a stand-up concert.
