EIGHTIES icon Howard Jones, who recorded hits such as Things Can Only Get Better, New Song, and What Is Love, returns to Banbury's Mill Theatre with his new acoustic show on Thursday, May 24.

Regarded by many as one of the most influential artists to emerge in the UK in the 80s, Jones enjoyed particular credibility in the world of dance music.

His work has grown and developed over the years and this month he brings to Banbury a refined and memorable concert, appearing in acoustic mode on piano and vocals accompanied by highly respected guitarist Robin Boult.

Howard Jones is one of the few British artists to have comprehensively "broken" America in the past 25 years.

His single No One Is To Blame went to No.1 in the US in 1986.

His album sales worldwide are now in excess of eight million, and apart from being an outstanding singer/songwriter, he is also a great piano player.
