Kiki at the Kenton
Published 16/06/14



THE powers-that-be at the Kenton Theatre were all aflutter last week when they announced that they had signed up a surprise guest for November, writes Lesley Potter.

“Can’t wait to see the legendary Kiki Dee perform at the Kenton 15 November,” they tweeted.

Kiki, most famous for her Don’t Go Breaking My Heart duet with Elton John back in 1976, will be playing with her long-term performing partner, guitarist Carmelo Luggeri.

The pair released their third studio album A Place Where I Can Go last year, the same year as the 67-year-old was celebrating 50 years in the music business.

She started singing with local bands in Bradford in the Sixties and went on to sing backing vocals for a number of artists, including Dusty Springfield. She signed with Elton John’s record label the Rocket Record Company and became a household name.


Her duet with Elton went to number one in the UK singles chart. The pair have remained lifelong friends, and Elton even missed Liz Hurley’s wedding in 2007 in order to attend “Keek’s” 60th birthday party at Raymond Blanc’s Maison aux Quat’Saisons.

The show at the Kenton is described as an “acoustic journey” of stories and song. It will include covers of songs by artists such as Kate Bush and Frank Sinatra and, of course, Kiki’s own hits Don’t Go Breaking My Heart, I Got The Music In Me and Amoureuse.
