Radio 2 in Concert – Caro Emerald

Caro is a stylish Dutch singer, whose debut album sold more copies in Holland than Michael Jackson’s Thriller. She performs live at the BBC Radio Theatre on Thursday 11 April and you can watch it on Red Button and then catch highlights from 9pm, Friday 12 April.

Both Caro and her band are great, charismatic performers – previously seen on Red Button at Radio 2 in Hyde Park 2011 - so we are delighted to welcome her back. Check out the video for Back It Up on YouTube for a taste of Caro delight.

BBC Radio 2 made Caro’s Riviera Life and Deleted Scenes from the Cutting Room Floor Single and Album of The Week respectively. She’s visiting Radio 2 ahead of a UK tour later this year – so we are lucky to have this early look.
