Lisa Stansfield to Sweden!

By on December 13, 2018

Iconic British singer Lisa Stansfield celebrates the 30th anniversary of the debut album “Affection” (1989) next year. On her journey “All Around The World” (..and I-I-I) she comes to Skandiascenen (Circus) in Stockholm – November 25, 2019!

Tickets will be released tomorrow, Friday 14 December, at. 11.00 via

The singer herself describes the thoughts about the start of her career almost 30 years ago, in the absolute best way:
“At the beginning, there was a little bit of fear about it, but we thought ‘F*ck it, let’s get on with it and see what happens’.”

And yes, what happened? It became a debut album that sold Platinum several times and sold over 5 million copies at the time of release. The record also resulted in 3 BRIT Awards, 2 Ivor Novello Awards, 1 Silver Clef Award, 1 ASCAP Award, 1 Billboard Music Award, 1 World Music Award and 2 Grammy Nominations – for the Manchester-born singer. Singles like “All Around The World”, “What Did I Do To You”, “Live Together”, “You Can’t Deny It” and “This Is The Right Time” made Lisa’s unique mix of soul, R & B and Brit-house a global hit.

Next year, the debut album will be 30 years old and Lisa Stansfield will describe her first album and anniversary as follows:
“I feel enormously proud of ‘Affection’. I said it then and I’ll say it now. To have a part of yourself floating around out there for everyone to enjoy and knowing so many people still do enjoy it is a huge compliment. The response it has to this day still inspires me to keep pulling music and emotion from myself and share it with others if they want to share it with me. It feels right to celebrate it. Life is a cycle and music is like that. Right now, in this current climate, ‘Affection’ makes complete sense.”

See you next autumn at Skandiascenen (Circus) for a fine 30th anniversary – and with songs from all of Lisa’s impressive career!
