Christian musician Sir Cliff Richard is hitting cinemas on Friday with a live show beamed directly to screens around the country.

The Cliff Richard Live: 60th Anniversary Tour will be beamed live from Manchester's Bridgewater Hall and will be shown on more than 700 screens in the UK and Ireland, including major multiplexes and many independent cinemas and arts centres.

Cliff Richard is performing in a 60th anniversary tour.

Encore screenings will run on Sunday October 14 at 3pm in celebration of Sir Cliff's 78th birthday.

Cliff Richard has had a staggering 103 album releases, a record-breaking 123 single hits and the equivalent of 20 years spent in the UK charts. He has been voted Britain's Ultimate Pop Star. He is the only British pop artist to have number one hits in every decade from the 1950s to the end of the 20th century.

He said: 'This 60th anniversary year is such a very special one for me, with an album release of exciting new tracks in the autumn and to be able to bring my show live to cinemas around the UK is an absolute thrill. I have the most wonderful fans and to be able to share this special evening live in Manchester with so many people is such a gift. I really will feel like I am with everyone that night, I can't wait!'
