With a career spanning more than fifty years, Gilbert will head to New Brighton on Sunday, October 13 to perform his classic back catalogue of hits for latest tour 'Just Gilbert.'

Born Raymond Edward O'Sullivan in Ireland, he began calling himself Gilbert and quickly created a distinctive image for himself after becoming influenced by the likes of The Beatles and Bob Dylan in the 60s.


He had managed to release two singles under CBS Records and the one with Major Minor but received very little attention, undeterred, he t sent a demo tape to the man behind Tom Jones and Engelbert Humperdinck, Gordon Mills.

As soon as he heard Gilbert, Gordon became his manager and it was then when Gilbert's career took off.

It was in 1972 when Gilbert achieved huge success with song Alone Again (Naturally) which topped the US charts for six weeks and secured three Grammy nominations. It wasn't long until he achieved his first three British number one hits with tracks Clair, Get Own and LP Back to Front.

Over the years Gilbert continued his rise to fame, winning Ivor Novello awards and achieving more top 10 hits with the likes of Why Oh Why Oh Why.

Fast Forward to 2019, Gilbert continues to wow his fans with his back-catalogue of hits while is 2018 album reached the top 20 charts.
