Cliff Richard has admitted he still worries about selling tickets to his shows, as he prepares for his 75th birthday tour, which includes a date in Sheffield.

Sir Cliff, who is due to tour the country next month, said he “still wonders if anybody’s going to show up” to his gigs.

He said: “When you start your career you have no concept about longevity. You don’t know what’s going to happen, so how it’s gone on I’ve no idea.

“I’m just really grateful that it has gone on and if people want to see me, I like performing so it’s no great hassle for me to come out on tour. I like it.

“I have to sing certain songs. There are some songs I’ve sung right through from the early ’60s. I have to do The Young Ones, Summer Holiday, Living Doll, I have to do Devil Woman, We Don’t Talk Anymore.

“And every now and then, I’m going to stick a new song in that I’ve recorded for my next album that probably won’t come out until next year and that’s the volume two of my rock and roll songbook series,”

Sir Cliff Richard plays Sheffield City Hall on Thursday, October 1. For tickets, priced from £65, visit Sheffield City Hall
