British icon Billy Ocean headed to Wollongong

One of Britain's most successful soul singers is headed down under - and he's performing just down the road.

Grammy Award winner Billy Ocean will bring his All the Hits tour to Wollongong's WIN Entertainment Centre this June as part of a national tour.

The popular artist is well-known for huge hits like Get Outta My Dreams, When the Going Gets Tough, Love Really Hurts Without You and Suddenly among plenty of others.

Ocean will be joined on stage by his 'super band' and promises to put on a show that will have everyone out of their seats and dancing.

The crooner picked up a reputation as a fantastic live performer throughout the years, and even featured in the American leg of 1985's iconic Live Aid concert.

Now the legend is itching to play to his Aussie fans.

"I love Australia and I'm really looking forward to returning for my shows," he said.

"It's going to be six party nights and everybody will be up on their feet."

Pre-sale tickets for the June 22 show go on sale at 9am on Monday, February 18.
