Sir Cliff at The Cliff! Veteran popstar performs to guests in Barbados

It’s Sir Cliff at The Cliff! Veteran popstar, 82, is all in white as he performs hits Summer Holiday and Congratulations to guests at top Barbados restaurant

After a stellar music career straddling an astonishing eight decades, he certainly knows a thing or two about rock.

And as a true citizen of Barbados, who better to formally open The Cliff – one of the island’s top restaurants – than Sir Cliff Richard.

The veteran singer, 82, treated guests to a performance of his hits Summer Holiday and Congratulations.

He sported a smart white suit and joked that he had continued the ‘Cliff at The Cliff’ theme by dressing as the White Cliffs of Dover. And he completed the look with a contrasting black tie, black belt and black and white brogues.

Sir Cliff arrived at the event with his close friend and former priest John McElynn, who he pushed in a wheelchair. He greeted guests as he toured the recently-renovated restaurant which overlooks Barbados’s Platinum Coast.

He joked to the crowd at the official opening: ‘Thank you so much. I didn’t realise you knew I was coming. It seems to us that most of us who arrive here, we come here to enjoy Barbados and then we fall in love with the place. I came here 22 years ago and I’m still here, I reside here, I pay tax here and I sing here sometimes.’ He went on: ‘You may have realised that I’m wearing a white suit.

‘Tonight, I am Cliff at The Cliff…I like to dress as though I am the White Cliffs of Dover.’

Last year the British pop star slashed the price of his luxury six-bedroom Barbados villa by £200,000 to £6.6million after failing to sell it since 2017.

He also reportedly put the 26-acre property, which boasts views of the Caribbean, a bar and a swimming pool, on Airbnb for £3,000 a night in February 2021.

Sir Cliff is set to feature in an hour-long BBC Christmas special this year, Cliff at Christmas, performing festive tunes, new songs, classic hits and being interviewed about his career.
