Cliff Richard

Biography

Cliff Richard has been a musical icon for five decades. When he burst onto the music scene in 1958, his raw teenage energy was a breath of fresh air, establishing him as Europe's first authentic rock 'n' roll star.

50 years and a staggering 250 million record sales later, Cliff continues to delight his fans with new music and spectacular live performances. Indeed it is impossible to think of any British entertainer who has spanned the years and the generations and had more hits all over the world than this unique and much loved man.
