Celebrating the film Breaking Glass’s 30th Anniversary live and onstage, her ageless songs from the soundtrack including  Eighth Day and the anthemic Will You seem even more relevant in our present times.

Striding into the spotlight with cult movie Breaking Glass,  Hazel immediately became an iconic figure.  From  initially cata,pulting to stardom with the starring role and the ensuing hits that followed, Hazel continues to tour extensively delighting audiences along the way, winning over fans old and new.

Hazel O’ Connor has fast re-established herself as an artist and performer to be reckoned with.  Her husky voice remains charged with passion and her enthusiasm, love of music, and wicked sense of humour, is ever present. Recently she received the accolade of her own star in the new Coventry Walk of Fame in England.  Her own small version now sits alongside her Gold Discs and BAFTA’s

A Spring tour to sell out shows in 2018, a very special anniversary year, culminates in  ‘Hazel Sings Breaking Glass Live’ which finds Hazel making her long awaited return to the West End stage to perform the whole soundtrack for the first time and which  toured the UK in November and December 2018 .
