*** Message from Neil O'Connor ***

News date - 17th January 2022

This is an important announcement about my darling sister, Singer, Songwriter and Actor, Hazel O’Connor.

On Sunday last, 9/01/2022, Hazel was discovered at her place in SW France and was found to have suffered a serious medical event.

She was taken to her local hospital where it was determined that she’d had a bleeding on the brain and that she should be transferred to a nearby major hospital where her condition could more effectively monitored.

On Sunday things were touch and go and the next 24 hours would determine how her recovery may go.

She was put into an induced coma for about 24 hrs and brought out of it Monday evening and since then has been showing a lot of progress although, saying that, her recovery is going to take a while but she is tough and is responding to stimuli and to treatment.

She’s receiving the best of care and I thank the French medical service there for taking such good care of her.

Also a big thanks and appreciation go to Pete and Tony who were on the spot to help and have been my liaison all through this time and have been updating me daily about Hazel’s condition, Thanks so much guys.

So, please, all positive thoughts, vibes, intentions are appreciated.

She’s going to need patience from us and from herself, I’ve already learned that she’s started to show her usual feistiness.

There will be a separate notification from Hazel’s management as regards tour dates and shows.

Thanks for taking the time to read and for your love of my dear sister.

Neil O’Connor, Montreal 17/01/2022

*** Message from Team Hazel ***

News date - 17th January 2022

Hello, Team Hazel here

Hazel has been showing positive signs of improvement, only small steps at this point.

Neil, Hazel’s brother’s words speak of the current situation.

We have had to give extremely serious thought to Hazel’s activities in the short, medium and long term.

We have decided that all shows up to the Electric Ladies tour in June are postponed without replacement dates, at the moment. These are early days and we hope you can bear with us and hold onto tickets until we can reschedule. Hopefully all the venues will work with us on this basis.

No one knows what progress Hazel will make or when. You could be thinking, Hazel should not be doing any shows in the foreseeable future, well, yes, that could be the outcome, we just don’t know.

We know Hazel is a fighter and we think she would like to know there are live shows coming up as something to work towards. The decision is we keep June onwards under constant review.

We will keep you updated on Social Media

Please don’t ask for further information as we don’t have any, we will give it as we know more.

You may have seen a GoFund me page https://gofund.me/1f2c9c21 set up to assist Hazel to purchase a car to replace the unreliable one that gave her a major problem in December, the plan is to adjust this to more of an overall support for her recovery and recuperation. All touring having been curtailed due to Covid has wiped out income hence the need for assistance, as you may know Hazel was already” flabbergasted by your generosity”

We are sure you join with us in wishing Hazel all the best and a speedy recovery

February April Whale Theatre and Belfast Black Box

Postponed until further notice

We would ask if ticket holders could hold on to their tickets for the time being until we have further news, the dates will be rescheduled hopefully and please await a further announcement.

March UK Tour

Postponed until further notice

We trust you will understand that with Hazel unable to perform for the foreseeable future we have no alternative but to postpone this tour for the time being and look at re-scheduling at the earliest opportunity.

We would ask if ticket holders could hold on to their tickets for the time being until we have further news, the dates will be rescheduled hopefully and please await a further announcement.

April show with Ferocious Dog: Nottingham Rock City April 30

Hazel unfortunately will not now be appearing with them on this show, we will keep the July show under constant review.

June Electric Ladies tour

Currently this is unchanged and we will keep Hazel’s health as the only deciding factor on these dates.

We are all devastated to have to postpone, as we know that you will be, especially after everything we have been through in the past two years.

We thank you in advance for your patience during this time

*** Announcing rescheduled tour dates ***
News date - 20th March 2020

Thank you to everyone who bought tickets for the upcoming "Electric Ladies of the 80s" April/May tour and the sold out "Breaking Glass 40 Years On - Hallelujah!" March tour. The shows were understandably cancelled at the last minute due to government advice following the escalation of the Coronavirus outbreak.

We are pleased to announce however, that both tours have now been rescheduled for September 2020 and March 2021 respectively. The exception being Oswestry which is sadly closing as a venue.

For both tours, tickets will remain valid for the new dates. Ticket holders are given priority and will be contacted first by each venue in due course. Although almost all venues in the UK have had to close their doors temporarily, box office staff are still working hard behind the scenes to get to everyone - confirming existing bookings for the new date or offering refunds. This might not happen immediately everywhere of course, so we request that you be patient . We do welcome your understanding in this unprecedented situation.

Stay safe in these quickly changing and unsteady times. Sending you Sunshine x

Hazel O'Connor and Band To Play All The Hits From First Three Albums, "Breaking Glass", "Sons and Lovers" and "Cover Plus".

Award-winning singer, writer and actress Hazel O'Connor has announced a fourteen-date UK tour for November and December 2017.

Hazel O'Connor became an overnight sensation after her BAFTA nominated portrayal of Kate in the 1980 smash hit film Breaking Glass.

During this period, Hazel released three of her most successful albums; "Breaking Glass", "Sons and Lovers" and "Cover Plus", which produced a stream of top ten hits, including the iconic "Will You", "Eighth Day" and "D-Days".

Hazel is back with her full band and will be joined on stage by her brother Neil O’Connor for the first time since their 2 week residency at Ronnie Scott’s back in 1984. Neil played original guitars on the "Sons and Lovers" and "Cover Plus" album and enjoyed his own success as the front man of the punk band The Flys.

Hazel is joined on stage with a 5 piece band including Clare Hirst on Sax and Sarah Fisher on Keys.

O'Connor said, "I'm looking forward to be playing excerpts from these three albums as I often don't get the opportunity to play my early songs. To be joined by Neil, who was there at the inception of these songs, is a privilege for me. Likewise, getting to play with my sisters in music, sax player Clare Hirst (Belle Stars Comunards and David Bowie) and keyboards and vocalist Sarah Fisher (Eurythmics) in this full band line-up is gonna be a powerful thing!"

Memories of
Mr David Bowie
1st February 2016

Hello Everyone!

Such a long time since my last newsletter. I hope that 2016 is treating you all well thus far.

2015 finished on a high with the 35 years tour. Breaking Glass back on the big screen and a sell out performance at the Chapel in London. Who'd have thought it 35 years later? Thank you all for coming along and for your support. You made us feel very special.

The new year seems to have taken many of our favourite artists from us. So many people that have touched our lives and are now gone. As with many of you, I was numbed by the passing of Mr David Bowie, a great influence in my life. I posted my memories of the starman on facebook and I have copied them into this newsletter incase you have not already read them. Wherever our heroes are now, i hope that their onward journey is a good one.

The dog training is finally paying off and the young ones, Lola and Diva, are slowly calming down. Well, sometimes..... unusually, the other day I managed to sleep in for an extra hour. When I got up to let them out, it looked like it had been snowing in the house. Diva, in her disapproval at my late rising, decided to rip her bed to shreds. There was white foam everywhere. How on earth is there so much foam in one little dog bed? Oh Diva, she's certainly living up to her name. On the other hand though, old guy Ross is getting frail and not well. The vet says his time is limited, so feeling sad knowing that the day I will have to say goodbye is looming ever nearer.

On a more positive note, the new "An Evening with........" 2016 tour is looking good. The first date at the Black Box in Belfast sold out really quickly and was a fabulous night for us gals. Belfast, you rocked! So looking forward to getting out on the road to see you all. The tour continues next week in Wales. All dates and links are at the bottom of the page. Three of them are already sold out and another three are almost gone. Wow, such an amazing response, thank you all! Scotland - we haven't forgot you, we are trying for dates with you, its hard, but we'll get there.

Time to take the dogs out - don't want to spend the evening cleaning up foam again,

Wishing everyone health, happiness, and plenty of sunshine for 2016,
Love from Hazel x

Memories of David Bowie

Almost a week ago, the world learnt that the inspiration of generations of songwriters musicians and performance artists had left us. So shocked by the sad news, these are my memories of Mr David Bowie.

I first met David when I was filming Breaking Glass. Tony Visconti who was producing the album knew that I was a big fan and invited me down to his Good Earth studios in Soho to meet him. While we were chatting, David turned to me and asked, "I hear you cut Tony's hair, could you give me a haircut?". Yeah! How could I refuse the chance of cutting my hero's hair? So, with the office shears and a dirty tea cloth draped over his shoulders, I shakily obliged him.

I bumped into him, literally, some weeks later when he came to a private screening of Breaking Glass. I came into screening room a tad late and in the total darkness I stumbled over someone's feet. When i looked up it was David. After the screening we all went to the pub together and he said he would come see a gig of mine a few weeks later when I was supporting Iggy Pop.

So, a few weeks later, he came to see me at the Camden Palace. I felt so proud. It was the first time in my life ever that I played Will You live. I thought the song was too soppy but it went down a storm and I was bursting with happiness that Bowie, the king, had bothered to come to see me play.

Soon after, I became crazy famous and found it hard to deal with. We met up again at a charity function and he gave me pearls of wisdom. "Look Hazel, you can bet that all these people know more about you than you do about them. So even the playing field and find out about them. Simple stuff like, what's your name? Your job? Your hopes? etc". I have done that ever since, and fanlike behaviour never frightened me again!

The next time I met him was July 1985 at Live Aid in Wembley Stadium where my pal and co player Clare Hirst was playing saxophone in his band. He was sweet and personable as always.

Several years later, Cormac De barra and I flew to New York to record with Tony Visconti for our Beyond Breaking Glass show. Tony took us straight from the plane to go see a Placebo concert where David was going to do a guest appearance with them. After the gig we had a hug and a hello. He had now married his lovely wife Iman and I wished him all happiness. I think he found it.

Finally, i saw him was about 10 years ago at a concert at the 02 Dublin. My first manager Alan Edwards was there and was now Davids publicity agent, as was my road manager Frankie who was now his road manager. I can't remember if we said hello, I was so excited to see my old team there now with the king. That was my last time and, like Clare Hirst said to me yesterday, "I always thought I'd see him again", and so did I. Now all his songs are whizzing through my head daily as they are for zillions of people around the world.

Such a loss to us all but his legacy lives on and his work will continue to inspire us.

An evening with... Hazel O'Connor
2nd April 2015

Hello Everyone!

A few words from me before the next round of live dates "An Evening with...". In order to include as many of your favourites as possible, we are now doing a new two part performance with lots of Breaking Glass and stories in the first half . So its very important the get there at beginning so that you do not miss the first part of the show. The ‘premiere’ in this format was at the Tithe Barn in Bishops Cleeve and proved to be very successful, so I am very excited to have this opportunity to present this new show to you all in the next few weeks.

2015 has already been very busy and, major flu not withstanding, I had a fabulous time on the “Up Close and Personal” tour in Ireland and France with Cormac. It was wonderful to sing in my hometown at Cov Cathedral for the Pride of Britain Awards. Then, the next day doing Q & A at the Coventry Music Museum where I really enjoyed our intimate chat hosted by Pete Chambers. Thanks to everyone for coming along and supporting us.

This last week has been very special as we have a new addition to the pack. Diva, a rescue dog who has been with us for 8 days now.... and 8 days i've been running around blocking holes in the fence lol. She’s lovely but she arrived in her first season and that drove old guy Rossy to distraction. Every ones getting on really well though, so very happy.

Meet Diva the new addition to the pack

Be safe, looking forward to seeing you all soon,
Love from Hazel x

Autumn Tour with Hugh Cornwell
25th October 2014

Hello Everyone!

A few words from me before the next round of live dates. The last few months have been very busy with the release of Here She Comes earlier in the year. We have had an amazing spring/summer on the HSC tour and the summer festivals. Thanks to you all for coming along to the shows and for supporting us.

The shows at the end of the month with Sarah and Clare have been sold out for some time now. If you didn't manage to get tickets, you can catch us in Nov/Dec on the double headliner tour with Hugh Cornwell. It promises to be quite a tour, both Hugh and myself will be performing full seperate sets and the Camden Electric Ballroom show on Dec 4 will also feature the legendary John Cooper Clarke as very special guest. I know i'm repeating myself but, don't be "Hanging Around" and miss out, get your tickets soonest as they are selling quickly.

There are some Up Close and Personal dates in Ireland and in France with the lovely Cormac De Barra. One of these is a return date to Edith Piafs old haunt, the Café de Paris in Paris - so who's up for a romantic weekend in Paris? There are a few more Up Close dates to be confirmed, details will be posted soonest on Facebook and the website.

Breaking news of the last few days is the paperback release of Breaking Glass Barefoot this week. It is available direct from Wymer and also from Waterstones and Foyles and hopefully in your local bookshop soon. If your local bookshop hasn't got it in and you aren't keen on buying from the internet, you should be able to order it with the Product Code: ISBN978-1-908724-22-9.

As many of you probably already know, at the end of September, i was hospitalised because my blood pressure was dangerously off the scale. Thank you all for your get well wishes and making me feel so special. It was a very scary time but i am glad to say, that with the help of some great doctors, things are slowly getting back on track.

I have been advised to stay away from salt and thats been a big eye opener, added salt is in nearly every food stuff on the shelves, including chocolate! Thank goodness, i don't add too much extra salt to my plate because there is already far more than is good for us. Stress appears to have been the main trigger so I have been ordered to take things easy and avoid stressful situations. That is so difficult for me as i am always on the go and can't sit still for five minutes. During my "forced" rest, i discovered a great series called Homelands and have become a huge fan. Without giving anything away, its a political/psychological thriller based around the secret missions of a bipolar CIA officer and a marine prisonner of war that got turned to work for the other side; love, hate, twists and intrigue galore - well worth checking out if you have never seen it.

Be safe, looking forward to seeing you all soon,

Love from Hazel x

At the beginning of January, as a little taster for the album, Sarah, Clare and I did a guerilla video shoot in Paris. We had such fun doing it. At the beginning it was only to feature us three gals, the leading man Thierry Antoine who has a band called Maybe Pop Is and whom some of you may have seen doing support at our Paris gig last year, and two actor friends Loredana Acquaviva and Daniel Pearson. As you'll see, we shot it in a restaurant/bar and during the shoot we noticed that the customers and staff were really enjoying it and singing along to the song. Well what could we do? We couldn't resist it, we just had to get all those lovely people on film too! We enjoyed ourselves so much, I do hope that comes across in the vid and ofcourse that you enjoy it as much as we did!

Tour News and new album
30th September 2013

Hello Everyone!

Its been such a long time since my last newsletter, i hope that you have all had a great summer?

Its been a busy last few months and, with the rapidly approaching Autumn dates, the next few are looking even more so. The first two dates, which are the only shows in Ireland this year, will be Dublin and Slane with Cormac and Ruairi de Barra. All of the tour dates are at the bottom of the page. Please be aware that Shoreham and Bishops Cleeve are already sold out and a few of the other dates are going that way too, so do get your tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Summer zipped by with the festivals and the 8 day run of Beyond Breaking Glass in Edinburgh. Fifteen years on since we first show cased the show to five star reviews, Cormac and I were delighted get a five star review this time round too! We had a wonderful time meeting up with friends old and new, and finished off the run by doing a mini gig at an informal after show get together.

Thanks to everyone that came along to the summer shows. Your support is always much appreciated!

In between time, with Sarah and Clare, we have been working on a new album which will be called "TORCH". All the songs are now written and we will be going into the studio to record after the tour. One of the songs is in French, so for the past two weeks i have worked on this song with some of my French pals to perfect my accent. We had so many fits of uncontrolable laughter. I'm in full admiration of their patience with my Franglais!

I also recorded for a Christmas single in aid of VIVA (Vegetarians International Voice for Animals). Many well known stars are contributing their voices to the cause and its all been orchestrated by Debbie Curtis who has worked on the project since last December. Release date and pre - order details will follow soon.

My dogs are all well. There have been many tears, but Jess has rallied round and seems to be much stronger and is comfortable. She's still on steriods to keep her going. It's a day by day thing.

On my travels many of you have asked where you can buy releases from my back catalogue. Due to the increasing number of unofficial sources, particulary of downloads, i have been working with Maureen, who many of you know, to find a solution. We hope to get everything into place in the next couple of weeks and will be sending you another e-mail then. In the mean time you can still use the HOC Shop, but do not be alarmed at being asked to pay Just Vinyl as this is in fact Maureen selling under her Just Vinyl title on my behalf.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon,
Spread the sunshine!
