Billy Ocean has announced a Best Of Billy Ocean Australian tour, where he will perform his greatest hits such as Caribbean Queen, When the Going Gets Tough, Get Outta My Dreams, Suddenly, Love Really Hurts Without You, Loverboy, and There’ll Be Sad Songs (To Make You Cry). The tour begins on the Gold Coast in mid-June before heading to Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra and Adelaide.

His first Australian shows since 2019, the British soul icon promises nights his fans won't forget anytime soon.

Ocean commented about his upcoming tour, "I'm really excited to get back to Australia. Love the people and I can't wait to get you all on your feet - see you in June!"

Billy Ocean has sold over 30 million records, achieved six Top 10 singles in the US and the UK, and has received Gold and Platinum certifications around the world. He also holds a Grammy award for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance for Caribbean Queen, the Ivor Novello Award for International Achievement, and in 2020 was awarded an MBE for services to music.

Ocean has released 11 albums to date, with his most recent album, One World, released in 2020, charting at #14 in the UK.
