Billy Ocean

Story by Jack Foley

BILLY Ocean holds the prestigious title of being the biggest selling British black artist of all time.

During a career spanning over 25 years, he has sold in excess of 30 million singles and albums worldwide, reaching his pinnacle throughout the 1980’s with hits including When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going and Caribbean Queen.

He has just announced four dates in the UK, including a night at London’s Hammersmith Apollo in October.

The dates are (all October):

17 – Hammersmith Apollo
18 – Wolverhampton Civic Centre
21 – Brentwood Centre
24 – Manchester Opera House

From humble beginnings to international stardom, Billy Ocean’s road to fame has at times been tinged with despondency.

His determination to succeed and talent have always shone through even the darkest of times, proving that when the going gets tough… the tough really do get going.

Billy lives in England and enjoys spending time with his family, gardening at his home in Berkshire and performing around the globe with Ebony Steel Orchestra.
