FFCE0E41-2924-4C0F-9382-DFAA77B73CA5

Just when you thought The Greatest Showman hype was slowing down and going away they are making sure we don’t quite forget about it yet. A new soundtrack is coming called Reimagined with many different pop stars getting the chance to be part of it. Some of the choices are a little bit strange and half of them I have never even heard of.

SpiceUp London: The Spice Girls Exhibition

When I found out that a huge Spice Girls exhibition was going to be happening when I was already going to be in London I jumped at the chance to get tickets. Why not a nice throwback to the 90s and how different everything was back then, but also to actually remember just how huge The Spice Girls really were and the legacy they left behind with the rise of Girl Power!

Queen + Adam Lambert (Newcastle) 2017

Date: Friday 1st December 2017

Venue: Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle

It’s been almost three years since I last saw Adam Lambert grace the stage with rock legends Queen, as it was January 2015 when they last came to Newcastle. That was a truly fantastic show therefore I was very excited to be heading back to see the set up again, wondering what different things they would manage to come up with this time round.

Joe McElderry: Saturday Night at the Movies Tour (2017) Newcastle Review

6387c3c196926a7de3cc03ba5b79b743522601d7_zpskzfexqrk

Date: Sunday 30th July 2017
Venue: Theatre Royal, Newcastle

Local lad Joe McElderry also from South Shields has come along way since being crowned The X Factor winner back in 2009, which was the last time I watched the show to be completely honest. The whole town was behind him and it’s amazing to have followed his career since then. His transition to Opera star as well, really showing off his incredible vocals. I have bought each album and enjoyed listening to his fantastic voice. It has also been fantastic to witness his change over to musical theatre and leading as Joseph.

This was the first time I have had the honour of seeing him in concert at the amazing Theatre Royal in Newcastle, which was a complete sell out I want to add. The tour falls into his new album released earlier this month ‘Saturday Night at the Movies’ so a chance to hear him sing all of the songs live.

He has brought some friends along for the show as well though in Keith Jack and Ben James-Ellis who both found fame on Joseph show Any Dream Will Do and have since become seasoned performers. They were also joined by Sam Callaghan a former X Factor contestant who stepped in for the tour for Lloyd Daniels due to illness.

Date: Thursday 1st December 2016

Venue: Metro Radio Arena (Newcastle, UK)

In November Michael Ball and Alfie Boe released an album together with a collection of songs mainly from Musical Theatre. They have both had incredible careers on stage and it is brilliant that they decided to work together to create the album and a tour to go alongside it.

I had certainly had the tickets for quite a long time, which is always a shame when it comes to any concert, show or performance. But it did allow me to be able to listen to the album over and over and over again. Really appreciating how the pair bring out great things in each other the way they have arranged the lyrics in the songs.
