Atlantic recording artist John Reilly fronts this concert with his spiritual and soulful vocals and hand-picked world-class session players who usually back artists such as Paul Carrack and Take That.

Reilly who’s last single LaLaLa (Bulletproof) was a huge success on national radio has teamed up with his writing partner Lewis Nitikman to study the stunning back catalogue of Burt Bacharach and put together a sophisticated show, which from start to finish is filled with truly great compositions.

After a very long closure to the public, this is the perfect way for Sheffield City Hall to re-open its doors in style.
