Eight-time Grammy-winning soul star Anita Baker will perform in the UK for the first time in 13 years this summer when she plays the Love Supreme Jazz Festival in East Sussex.
The concert carries extra significance as the show forms part of Baker’s Farewell Tour and will be her last ever UK concert.
“I’m so happy to be returning to the UK after all this time. I have such fond memories of playing at the Royal Albert Hall all those years ago and it’s going to be a magical experience reconnecting with my UK fans and doing it all again one last time at Love Supreme this summer!”
Baker joins this year’s Love Supreme line-up alongside TLC, who come to the UK to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their seminal albumCrazySexyCool, legends The Isley Brothers, who return to the UK for the first time in over 10 years, Brazilian bossa nova legend Sergio Mendes, who performs his only UK festival show of the year, and master US saxophonist Charles Lloyd, who makes his debut at the festival with his Kindred Spirits group.
Additional names will be announced in due course.
Tickets start at £54 and are available from www.lovesupremefestival.com.
