Leeds Pride, ‘Say Hello’ to Marc Almond

Leeds LGBT Pride are proud to bring the openly gay legend Marc Almond to the Leeds LGBT Pride Tenth Anniversary Celebration.

Once part of the ‘synthpop/new wave’ duo Soft Cell Marc will be performing on the Sainsbury’s Parade Stage at Millennium Square on Sunday 7th August 2016.

Tom Doyle Chair of Leeds LGB&T* Pride said, ‘It’s great that an out Gay artist with strong links to Leeds is headlining our stage on Millennium Square. For many LGB&T* people Marc’s work forms the sound track to their youth and for those a little younger we hope to introduce them to this major cultural innovator.

Born in Southport in the North West of England in 1957, he later moved to Harrogate (near Leeds). Marc studied Fine Art at Leeds Polytechnic leaving the college in 1979 with a BA Honors. It was at Art College that Marc developed his unique style of experimental performance and cabaret pop.

During his time at Leeds Polytechnic Marc met David Ball whom he eventually formed the internationally successful ‘electro duo’ Soft Cell. Soft Cell recorded four albums together with hit songs including the worldwide classic Tainted Love.

When Soft Cell parted amicably in 1984 both Marc and David went their separate ways and pursued solo careers. In 1989 Marc had another number one, this time as a duet with 60’s legend Gene Pitney with the song Something’s Gotten Hold of My Heart, it remained number one in the UK for five weeks.

Marc and David Ball briefly teamed up again in 2000 and recorded a new Soft Cell album which was received well by fans. It was also in this year that you may be surprised to know that Marc moved to Russia where he has a huge fan base.

During a renaissance of his career in 2004, Marc suffered a serious motorcycle accident in which he was left in a coma for two weeks, he suffered near fatal injuries that have taken years for him to recover from. In the aftermath of the crash, Marc had to even learn to sing again.

Leeds LGBT Pride are proud that Marc Almond, an adopted son of Leeds has made a full recovery and is now singing and performing better then ever. What a better time to welcome Marc to Leeds then to celebrate Leeds LGBT Pride’s Tenth Anniversary on Sunday 7th August.
