Cliff Richard to sing at Muscat’s opera house

British megastar Sir Cliff Richard will appear in concert at the Royal Opera House Muscat (ROHM) in Oman this Saturday.

Knighted for his remarkable contribution to popular music, Cliff Richard has sold more than 250 million records worldwide, with many gold and platinum hits. In 2013 Cliff Richard released his one-hundredth album, which was soon certified gold - The Fabulous ‘in’ Roll Songbook. 

In the UK, sales of his singles have gone past twenty-one million, making Cliff Richard the third-top-selling artist in UK Singles Chart history, surpassed only by the Beatles and Elvis Presley. 

Cliff Richard’s career spans more than five decades and date back to the 1950’s, when he was positioned as a rebellious Rock and Roll singer in the style of Little Richard and Elvis Presley. With his talented back-up group, The Shadows, Cliff Richard dominated the British popular music scene in the pre-Beatles period of the late 1950s to early 1960s.  

Over time, this innovative musician defied classification and became simply Cliff Richard. 

His latest album includes hits from the fifties such as Roll Over Beethoven (Chuck Berry), Great Balls of Fire (Jerry Lee Lewis), and Sweet Little Sixteen (Chuck Berry). 

Thanks to technology, Cliff Richard also sings a duet with the King of Rock and Roll Elvis Presley on the track Blue Suede Shoes. 

Sir Cliff Richard will appear on stage at the Royal Opera House Muscat on October 7 at 7 pm.
