Billy Ocean

Soul-pop legend to play at Irish Village

We’ve got a soft spot for Billy Ocean’s sultry, soppy soul-pop. Not quite in the so-bad-it’s-good camp, Ocean is let off the hook for some of his greater transgressions of taste: the video for 1986’s ‘When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get Going’, complete with a cameo from Michael Douglas. Ocean broke a 15-year retirement from touring back in 2007, and we’ve heard mixed reports about his recent form, but how could anyone resist the groove of mega-hit ‘Caribbean Queen’?
