The iconic Betty Boo has announced a London Islington Assembly Hall show for 2024.
Taking place on Saturday 15th June, tickets for the show will go on-sale on Wednesday 6th December at 10am from Ticketmaster.
Betty Boo is a Hip Hop pioneer and 90’s icon, as well as a a multi-platinum selling, Brit- and Ivor Novello- Award-winning singer/songwriter/producer from West London.
In 1987, a chance meeting in McDonald's on Shepherd’s Bush Green with Public Enemy after the Def Jam show at Hammersmith, led to her supporting the band on their tour in the US with her Hip Hop trio She Rockers.
In 1989 she featured as featured vocalist on The Beatmasters’ Top 10 single - Hey DJ/I Can't Dance (To That Music You're Playing) Her first solo single, Doin’ The Do, was released the following year and heralded Betty Boo as a phenomenon in her own right. Doin’ The Do and the follow-up Where Are You Baby? were both top 10 singles. They were written and demoed by Betty Boo in her bedroom using basic sampling gear - a process she would return to in recent years.
She released two albums -Boomania and GRRR! It’s Betty Boo - and then mostly retired from the public eye.
In her time away from the spotlight she wrote hit songs for other artists including Girls Aloud, Paloma Faith, and the million-selling Pure And Simple for Hear'Say.
Cut to 2022, and the unexpected return of Betty Boo with her universally critically acclaimed, radio-smash-filled, 3rd album, Boomerang which was voted Retro Pop magazine’s Album Of The Year.
“Boomerang is a celebration of life, whether that’s the Friday night feeling of Get Me To The
Weekend or the hymn to deep, lasting friendships Right By Your Side (a duet with David Gray); the
boundlessly positive Miracle (featuring Chuck D) or the rhythmic bounce of 808. It’s a Betty Boo for the 21st century, a record that could only have been made now, by one of our most unique pop stars.”
