International soul star PEABO BRYSON, who won Grammy awards for his chart-topping Disney duets with Celine Dion and Regina Belle, is the latest act announced as part of BBC Radio 2’s ‘Friday Night Is Music Night LIVE’, a new initiative which sees a range of high profile acts touring the UK in celebration of iconic songwriters.
Alongside tours by Tom Chaplin and Beverley Knight, who will perform the songs of Queen and Stevie Wonder respectively, Bryson will partner with the Leo Green Orchestra as he takes to the road to pay tribute to the great disco-era crooner Barry White.
The 10-date UK tour, which will run from October 11th – 28th 2019, is a reappraisal of Bryson’s sold-out concert at The London Palladium in November, which featured arrangements of all of White’s greatest hits including “Can’t Get Enough Of Your Love, Babe” and “You’re The First, The Last, My Everything”. The concert was recorded by BBC Radio 2 and is available to listen to here.
There has been a theatre on George Street for almost 170 years. The first theatre was built in 1836, and a second in 1886. In 1934, the third New Theatre opened. The theatre has been owned by several different companies and undergone several name changes. It is now owned by the Ambassador Theatre Group and hosts everything from ballet and opera to musicals.
