Terence Trent D'Arby to play Final Four
The Euroleague is proud to announce that Terence Trent D'Arby, also known as Sananda Maitreya, will perform with his band right before the title game of the Euroleague Final Four 2003, which takes place at Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona, Spain, on Sunday May 11. Terence Trent D'Arby will play his act in the same scenario where, just a few minutes later, the more than 16,000 people filling the arena will enjoy the battle for the Euroleague crown. Influenced by such eclectic sources such as The Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin and The Beatles, Terence Trent D'Arby hit the charts in 1987 with his first record "Introducing The Hardline According To...", which won him a Grammy for the best male R&B vocal performance. He was also nominated as Best New Artist of the year. D'Arby soon became known for his intensity on stage, and his performances earned him a top spot on the soul scene of the late '80s and early '90s. After that, D'Arby released three more records: Neither Fish nor Flesh (1989), Terence Trent D'Arby's Symphony or Damn (1993) and Vibrator (1995), always collecting good reviews for his new approaches to soul music. After seven years of silence, Terence Trent D'Arby reappeared in 2002 with his latest release, Terence Trent D'Arby's Wildcard!, with which he also introduced his new artistic identity, Sananda Maitreya. The first single from the album, "O Divina", has been heard on radio stations everywhere.
