Up Close and Personal with Keith Semple
Former Lead Singer of 7th Heaven Performs His Favorite Love Songs on Valentine’s
Day at Viper Alley
Plus an Exclusive, One Time Only Preview of his Brand New Music Video, “Hand On My Heart”
Internationally acclaimed pop artist, Keith Semple, is no stranger to the spotlight. As the winner of Popstars: The Rivals (the United Kingdom's equivalent of American Idol), this talented singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has performed in places others only dream of, including The Royal Albert Hall in London, The Empire in Belfast, and Chicago’s Soldier Field for over 60,000 fans!
Named “Chicago’s Top Male Singer” by Chicago Rocker magazine and having written two Top 10 hits in the U.K. and two #1 hits on Chicago’s Billboard charts, Keith was the front man for Chicago's busiest and most popular rock band, 7th Heaven. From 2006-2012, Keith performed over 1,200 shows playing an average of 200+ events per year. In his six years with the band, Keith opened for such acts as Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Leanne Rimes, Journey, Collective Soul and Huey Lewis, to name a few.
At the end of last year, Keith decided it was time to move on and announced his resignation as 7th Heaven’s lead singer. He has since formed his own band, SEMPLE, with four of his favorite Chicago musicians, Charley Bredrup, Amy Jay, Johnny Jannotti, and Drew Johnson. Though he is focusing on his original music, Keith, alongside SEMPLE, will continue to play the most popular cover songs.
On Thursday, February 14th (Valentine’s Day), Keith will be performing his favorite love songs at Viper Alley (275 Parkway Drive in Lincolnshire). This “Up Close and Personal” unplugged Valentine’s Day concert will also
include the debut of SEMPLE’s first single, “Hand On My Heart,” as well as an exclusive first look at the song’s new music video. In addition, everyone who attends will receive a free “SEMPLE gift”, and two lucky audience members will win a limited edition SEMPLE T-shirt. Showtime is 8:00 pm, doors open at 7:00 pm. Tickets start at $10. For more information, please visit http://www.viper-alley.com/calendar/details/672
