Oxford’s O2 Academy will be flinging open its doors to veteran soul crooner Alexander O’Neal for Valentine’s Day.

Famed for hits such as ‘Criticize’ the R&B legend will dig into his seductive songbook for a night to remember.

O’Neal rose to fame in the middle of the 1980s as a solo artist, releasing 14 singles that entered the top 40 charts.

His hits, in case you want to write the lyrics on the back of your hand ahead of the gig, include If You Were Here Tonight, Fake, The Lovers, (What Can I Say) To Make You Love Me. 

Make a date with him at the O2 in Oxford on Thursday 14 February at 7pm.
