No one takes fun quite as seriously as Sophie Ellis-Bextor. Backed by a versatile six piece band, the Kitchen Disco Tour returns in 2023 for a night of reimagined pop classics, highlights from her own discography and even a generous helping of Christmas spirit.

The 43-year-old pop star, who turned her kitchen into a disco amid the COVID-19 lockdown, saw huge success with the 2022 Kitchen Disco Tour in which she brought her lockdown online sensation to stages across the country, including a sold-out finale at the London Palladium. This tour featured tracks such as ‘All Night Long’, ‘Dancing Queen’ and of course, ‘Murder on the Dancefloor’, Sophie’s 2001 hit single.

The Arts Desk commented that Sophie’s Kitchen Disco live show “truly felt like you were dancing your cares away with some friends” whilst the Mail on Sunday called it “warm and relatable”. The Daily Telegraph proclaimed that it was “An unabashedly feelgood echo of lockdown”.
