A SIXTIES soul star will be performing an intimate show next month.

As a young singer PP Arnold, toured with Ike and Tina Turner as part of the Ike and Tina Turner Revue.

She left the group in 1966 to pursue a solo career and, in 1967 at the age of 21, rose to fame with the release of her debut solo album The First Lady Of Immediate.

The American will be performing at Patterns in Marine Parade, Brighton, on Saturday, October 12, and tickets are on sale now.

In the Sixties she was popular in this country, often speaking about how she was treated better here than she would have been in America at the time.

She released her second album, Kafunta, in 1968 but then had a near 50-year break from recording her own work.

During that time she remained active in the music industry and even appeared on records as a backing singer for the likes of Roger

Waters, Peter Gabriel and Oasis.

She reappeared in 2017 with The Turning Tides before releasing The New Adventures Of PP

Arnold in August this year.

She recorded all the songs on The Turning Tides in the Sixties, meaning her latest album is her

first newly recorded music in more than half a century.

It was produced by Steve Cradock, who

has worked with bands such as Ocean Colour Scene and The

Specials and features Paul Weller.

Arnold, pictured left and, far left as a young singer, was one of the stand-out voices of the Sixties and at the age of 72 she continues to tour and perform to crowds around the world.

Her autumn tour will start on October 2 in Middlesbrough.
