Having performed a special concert recorded for BBC Radio 2’s ‘Friday Night Is Music Night’ series at The London Palladium at the end of last year, Knight is set to take the show across the UK with the Leo Green Orchestra to pay homage to one of the greatest songwriters of modern times.
Knight, who this year celebrates 25 years in music, is one of few vocalists with the ability to do justice to the genius of Stevie Wonder’s rich and varied catalogue, which was broadcast on BBC Radio 2.
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.
