‘No Parlez’ UK Tour


35 Years of ‘No Parlez’

Paul is performing his much-loved album No Parlez on tour in the UK this autumn, in celebration of 35 years since its release!

No Parlez was Paul’s debut album. It reached number 1 in the UK charts in 1983 for 5 weeks and fast became triple Platinum. The album produced Paul’s first UK number 1 single – The Marvin Gaye cover of Wherever I Lay My Hat and hits Come Back & Stay and Love of The Common People. The album also features a cover of Joy Division’s Love Will Tear Us Apart.

Originally in early 80’s band Q-Tips, Paul Young went solo in the 80’s and his career took off with No Parlez and further top 10 hits such as Everytime You Go Away and Everything Must Change. He is also a Brit Award winner for Best Male vocalist, sings the opening lines on the original Band Aid Single Feed The World and performed at Live Aid in 1984. Paul is a keen chef, biker and fan of all things Mexicana! A family man, always happy to be touring his classic hits as a solo artist or with his Tex Mex/ Americana band Los Pacaminos.

You can buy tickets for all Paul’s gigs through the links on this website. Just navigate to the Events page and choose your venue!

    Dear Paul,
    We were dying to see you in Enschede (NL) in November – both last year and this year- and now you are not coming. Instead you will be touring in UK. I have very fond memories of you/your album No Parlez. My sister was your biggest fan and by proximity so were we, her siblings and friends. The second cancellation of your show is a major downer after we had built up a lot of anticipation as the concert would coincide with my sister’s 50th birthday. So please come back and stay..and make it up to her.
    Kind regards

      We have just announced the re-assignment of the postponed European shows, with one amendment to be made, I hope you can make it to one of them!

  4. James Fitzhenry - July 29, 2018 4:59 pm

    When and where can we see Paul in the Uk ?

    • admin - July 30, 2018 6:59 am

      There is a tour taking place throughout October, the ’35 Years Of No Parlez’ Tour. Please check the Events page

  5. Yvette - July 31, 2018 3:34 pm

    Hi my husband bought me tickets to actually come and see you on my birthday in Poole on the 30th September , yay can’t wait x

  6. Nicki - August 8, 2018 3:06 pm

    I am hoping to see the No Parlez tour. Just checking out wheelchair access tickets.. xx

    • admin - August 11, 2018 3:47 pm

      Unfortunately we have no knowledge of the standard of wheelchair access as it varies from venue to venue

  7. Marie - August 10, 2018 1:26 am

    Would Paul sign my original no parley album at the lighthouse poole if I took it there. I did get grounded for 2 weeks for going to Manchester to see him in concert 35 years ago lol.

    • admin - August 11, 2018 3:46 pm

      If time allows, it would be possible. Either speak to a member of staff or wait at the backstage door

  8. Anne - August 11, 2018 11:56 pm

    Dear Paul, When are you coming to Perth again? I saw you in 1986 I think it was at the Entertainment centre and at The Astor theatre a couple of years ago. I think you are just lovely. I still have my old cassettes of No Parlez and Secret of Association. I love watching you on you tube. I’m very sorry to hear about your wife xxx Anne

    • admin - August 12, 2018 3:51 pm

      I played in Perth a couple of years ago with Go West, so no immediate plans. Keep checking my social media!

  9. Anne - August 13, 2018 2:26 am

    Yes I went along and you and Nik Kershaw were fantastic. Oh 😞, my 82 year old dad rang me and said he heard that bloke I used to plaster posters from Smash Hits all over my bedroom walls is coming to Perth. He got it wrong, it’s John Paul Young coming to Perth instead, he’s an Australian artist. I just thought it would be loved by your Perth fans if you brought your 35th No Parlez tour here…even if you didn’t do Perth but went to Melbourne or Sydney I would travel!

  10. Anne - August 14, 2018 3:19 am

    My 82 year old dad told me he heard you were coming to Perth again soon; I got my hopes up. But I googled and found out its actually John Paul Young coming. “Love is in the air” He’s an Australian based singer but born in Scotland. I get a bit frustrated when people mix you 2 up! But I can forgive my dad cos of his age. Would love if you brought your No Parlez 35th tour here, even if you won’t do Perth as we’re quite small I would travel to other major cities in Australia to see you!

  11. Darren - August 16, 2018 1:54 pm

    Hi Paul,only just seen your on tour in Birmingham at the town hall.Gutted it’s sold out,any possibility of more dates as I’ve loved that album since I was a kid.It would make my year if you could add another date.really didn’t want to miss it?.

  12. Melissa - September 1, 2018 7:18 pm

    Can’t wait to see you in Dallas with Midge Ure and Nite next week!

  13. LR - September 2, 2018 7:40 pm

    Are the FWT’s in the line up too?
    I remember seeing them sing with PY on the Christmas 1983 tour.
    Hammersmith Odeon 23rd December 1983.
    It was televised by the Old Grey Whistle Test the next evening.

      We have the New Fabulous Wealthy Tarts! And they are the daughters of friends of the original Wealthies

  14. Andrea Shane - September 2, 2018 7:50 pm

    Come to the East Coast of the US Paul! NYC wants to see you!

  15. Mary Young - September 8, 2018 8:36 pm

    Please Help, been trying to get 2 tickets for Paul’s UK tour show either in Glasgow or Edinburgh, can’t seem to find any. Anyone know where 2 tickets are for sale ,PLEASE CONTACT ME. THANK YOU X

    • admin - October 1, 2018 7:15 pm

      I know most venues release some remaining tickets a couple of weeks before the show, and again just before the show (maybe on day of show?) Good luck!

  16. Debby Anderson - September 12, 2018 5:59 pm

    Absolutely broken hearted that there are no available tickets for Glasgow or Edinburgh!

  17. Simon - September 20, 2018 9:30 pm

    Are Ian and Pino in the band?

    • admin - September 21, 2018 11:01 am

      No, I’m afraid they’re not

  18. Iain Monk - September 27, 2018 9:28 am


    I wish to review the Edinburgh show for my blog, ‘The Ballad of Curtis Loew’. Who is fielding ticket requests?



  19. Ness - September 29, 2018 7:06 am

    I don’t know how to get this request to you BUT when you toured in Bristol my friend Tracey Garret and I came to see you in 1983. We were stood right next to your feet when you did the splits on stage.
    She has been very poorly recently but is hoping to come and see you in Cheltenham in October, the week before her birthday. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE could you give her a mention, she has been a devoted fan all these years and has been to see you many times. She will be with 2 old school friends from that time and it would be THE BEST BIRTHDAY present we could give her!!!!! Thank you ❤❤

    • admin - October 8, 2018 5:39 pm

      This message has been passed on to Paul

  20. Bryan Hodgson - October 1, 2018 9:41 am

    Hi Paul,
    We saw your concert in Poole last night(30/09/18) really enjoyed it, but why was there no programs or memorabilia? It would have been nice to have a souvenir of the show, as we we at to your last two shows there in the 80’s.

    • admin - October 1, 2018 7:14 pm

      The order didn’t go thru until late Friday so they only started printing today, apologies.

  21. Lynda Jenks - October 2, 2018 6:47 pm

    Came to see the No Parlez tour in Poole with 3 ‘old’ school friends. We loved every second and took us back to our youth. It was like being back at Hammersmith Apollo circa 1984 💙

  22. Trudy - October 3, 2018 10:35 am

    Any idea what the running order is for the Leas Cliff Hall Folkestone gig tomorrow night please?
    I have conflicting times of when Paul will be on, is he on at 7pm or 8pm or later?
    Who will be supporting him?
    Trudy 🙂

  23. Helen - October 3, 2018 10:02 pm

    Like the gentleman above, I was very disappointed not to be able to purchase a program…. I was at the Hastings show, it was also my 50th birthday !! Please would it be possible to buy one through Paul’s website ? It seems a shame that those fans who saw the first couple of shows on the tour will miss out simply due to a late order ?? Thankyou.

    • admin - October 8, 2018 5:36 pm

      There will be no programme for the tour, however tour t-shirts will be available online

  24. Helen Joyce - October 5, 2018 9:05 am

    A bit unfair to those of us who went to Paul’s Hastings gig – I really wanted to purchase a program. Would it be possible to buy one on-line please. Helen x

    • admin - October 8, 2018 5:35 pm

      There are no programmes for this tour. However the tour t-shirts and cd’s will be available online

  25. donna - October 7, 2018 8:41 pm

    Hi, cant wait to see Paul at the cliffs pavilion in Southend on 17th October. Does Paul do any signings or photos, before or after the shows? Really hoping he does,I would love a photo with him…. fingers crossed x

    • admin - October 8, 2018 5:34 pm

      With a very heavy schedule between Paul Young and Los Pacaminos shows, Paul will be taking as much rest time as possible so no Meet & Greets. However you could catch him as he leaves!

  26. Janice Rufeea - October 11, 2018 8:10 pm

    I am gutted I have only just found out about this tour! Will there be any more dates added on please?
    I saw Paul twice in the eighties – one time our car broke down so I left my partner behind with the car and I hitched it to London with a lorry driver so I didn’t miss the show (not to be recommended these days!) As George Michael appeared as a special guest I did not regret it for a moment!

    • admin - October 21, 2018 12:26 pm

      We’re talking about Europe at the moment, maybe later next year

  27. Peter - October 17, 2018 6:35 am

    Has Paul ever recorded an original song, that is not a cover version.

    • admin - October 17, 2018 4:37 pm

      Yes, 2 on the first album, 5 on the second, all of 3rd, half of 4th etc.

  28. Kim - October 18, 2018 8:14 am

    Hi! Seeing Paul in London next week. What time is he likely to be on stage?? Thanks 😀

    • admin - October 21, 2018 12:25 pm

  29. Katharine - October 19, 2018 5:26 pm

    Hello! will there be a support at the London Palladium, and if so, who? plus what time is Paul on stage? thanks very much!

    • admin - October 21, 2018 12:24 pm

  34. Britta Kreutner - November 11, 2018 8:44 pm

    hello Paul I hope that you also come to Germany again would be very happy about it💖😊

  35. Koen Gladines - November 22, 2018 9:24 pm

    Hi Paul, just bought tickets for my wife and me. Hope to see you in De Roma, Antwerp on april 18. Is there any chance of signing my LP ‘No Parlez’ which I still have at home ? If there is, I will certainly take it with me that day…

    • admin - December 4, 2018 1:23 pm

      There’s always a chance catch me going in or coming out the venue, I always sign

  36. Jen Mills - December 3, 2018 12:02 am

    Been a fan since I was 14 (40 something now!) and my love for your music has never ever faded. Saw you most recently in Hastings on your wonderful No Parlez tour. It made my heart sing. You are as beautiful now as you’ve ever been and your voice is still as golden. That is all.
    Jen xx

  37. Britta Kreutner - December 24, 2018 7:17 pm

    Hello Paul I hope that you come back to Germany in the Ruhr area I would be so happy about it because I can not travel for health reasons at each of your concerts where you are it is my greatest wish to see you again Pau💖😀😀💖😀l

  38. Paula Stone - January 10, 2019 7:02 am

    Inam so very sorry to learn of Stacey’s passing. I met both of you in 1992 at an Italian restayin Del Mar ( San Diego) and you were both so kind and personable! I remember you, Paul, talking with me as though I was in the music business after we discussed Live Aid and being fans of Crowded House:). Thank you for being such a gentleman and I hope to see you in San Diego for this tour!!

  39. Britta Kreutner - January 10, 2019 11:40 am

    Hello Mr. young I read on Twitter that you are ill and I am a bit worried about you, I hope you feel a little better I wish you a speedy recovery and all the best and love.💖🙏😘💖

  40. Colin Groombridge - February 3, 2019 6:35 pm

    Hi Paul, will your No Parlez tour include Carlisle?

    • admin - February 21, 2019 1:29 pm

      Not Carlisle, but maybe there is a show close by?

  41. Amanda - March 26, 2019 9:33 pm

    Any plans to return to Western Canada?

    • admin - June 22, 2019 5:52 pm

      Sadly not this year, although that is always subject to change so please keep checking

  42. Karine Claes - April 17, 2019 1:46 pm

    Hi Paul,
    I was so happy to see you yesterday at Vilvoorde. I have been a fan since the 80’s and saw you back then in Brussels at Cirque Royale. I enjoyed the concert yesterday ! I was so surprised that you were coming to Belgium so close to where I live. I really enjoyed it . You still look fabulous and also the 2 backing girls were amazing.
    I should have brought my 2 albums No Parlez and Secrets of Association to have them signed by you but I thought this would be impossible so I did not bring them. I read her now that you do sign if we catch you.
    But how much chance is there. So I will have to come to Antwerp tomorrow I guess.
    Will you come back to Belgium in the near future? I would love to see you at Nostalgie, beach festival in the summer. Maybe in future, who knows.
