Eddi Reader 40 Years Live Tour
Eddi Reader is perhaps Scotland’s greatest living female voice. In 2020, she celebrates her 40th year on stage with a 40 Years Live concert tour.

From her earliest years playing the folk clubs of western Scotland and learning how to street sing across Europe (like her hero Edith Piaf ) Eddi’s path soon led her to a professional career in music as a backing singer for Eurythmics and Gang of Four. Her band Fairground Attraction had huge international success and number one hits with Perfect and debut album First of a Million Kisses which stormed the charts in the late 1980s.

Throughout her successful solo career, Eddi has released consistently great works, including highly acclaimed albums such as The Songs of Robert Burns and last years Cavalier. She has won Brit Awards, been awarded four honorary degrees, an MBE, sung to millions on some of the world’s greatest concert and festival stages and collaborated with a host of stars across a myriad of genres including folk, jazz, pop, world, punk and even classical work with various orchestras.

In 2019 Eddi was invited to be a special guest with Jools Holland’s Rhythm & Blues Orchestra for an extensive tour, she released her Starlight EP, played sold out headline shows and recorded a programme for BBC Radio’s Classic Scottish Album series about her Robert Burns recordings and appeared on BBC Television’s Songs of Praise and as part of Billy Connolly’s Made In Scotland series.

2020s 40 Years Live concerts promise to be something special, as with any Eddi Reader concert, the magic is being made in the moment, no two concerts ever the same.

It has been a while, but the multi-award-winning Welsh comedian is back, with a brand new live show. In a seven-year break from stand-up, a lot has happened to Rhod Gilbert. Almost all of it s**t. And just when he thought he’d hit rock bottom, he met a bloke...called John.

This show sees Rhod as funny as ever, but like never before. Raw, personal and brutally honest; no more lies, no more nonsense. Tour extended due to phenomenal demand. 

As seen on 'Rhod Gilbert’s Work Experience', ‘'Would I Lie to You?’, 'Taskmaster’, ‘Qi’, 'The Apprentice: You’re Fired’, 'Live at The Apollo', 'Have I Got News for You?’, and much more…

"Darkly hilarious. Gilbert's most satisfying show for a decade. It's good to have him back." Times

"Volcanic, high octane humour. Uproariously funny."
Guardian

"Britain's crossest comic roars back in style. Hilarious tour-de-force."
 Telegraph

Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott
are heading out on tour, to coincide with the release of their new album Manchester Calling, in spring 2020.

Their fourth studio album, boasts all the hallmarks of Heaton’s beautifully bittersweet song writing, effortlessly catchy melodies allied with an everyman’s biting exasperation at the modern world alongside some truly heartfelt love songs.

Paul Heaton, one of the UK’s most successful songwriters with some 15 million album sales under his belt, first came to public attention in the early 80s as front man of Hull-based indie poppers The Housemartins (the same group that spawned Norman Fatboy Slim Cook), best known for their third single Happy Hour and their number one acapella Isley Bros cover Caravan Of Love.

In 1988 Heaton formed The Beautiful South, who released 10 hugely successful albums, Jacqui Abbott was lead vocalist in The Beautiful South from 1994 to 2000 and she sang many of their signature hits including Rotterdam, Perfect 10, Don’t Marry Her and Dream A Little Dream. The Beautiful South called it a day in 2007 citing musical similarities. Since then, the pair have released a number of albums together.

Diversity

After nine sell out UK tours, over 600,000 tickets sold, and countless television and live performances Diversity have announced one of their biggest UK tours to date including two dates at London Palladium for spring 2021.

Last year marked 10 years since Diversity took the nation by storm when they won the third series of Britain’s Got Talent. Over the past 10 years thanks to the overwhelming support of their fans and the British public they have continued to wow audiences around the world with their innovative live tours and performances. They celebrated this incredible achievement with a critically acclaimed sell out 48 show UK tour, Born Ready.

This tour is set to be even bigger, and as Diversity promised their fans on the Born Ready tour, they will continue the legacy of Diversity and never let anyone tell them they cannot achieve something. To take them into the new decade of Diversity, Ashley has created a new show, Connected, which centres around the world of social media, the internet, and the digital era we now live in, but more importantly how this connects us all.

Creator and choreographer Ashley Banjo said of the forthcoming tour, "Every year that goes by, and every time we get to create a new touring show, I cannot believe we are still lucky enough to get to do this. But even after all this time, we are still growing, and this new decade and new chapter for Diversity is sure to be something even more special than the last. I truly do believe that we are all connected in mores ways than one and I cannot wait to bring this to life on stage."

Ashley Banjo has returned to the judging panel for his third series on ITV’s primetime show Dancing on Ice, the final airs this Sunday on ITV with fellow Diversity member Perri Kiely competing for the winner’s trophy. Ashley has also hosted, choreographed and starred in the BAFTA nominated The Real Full Monty (2017-2019) and International Emmy Award, Broadcast Award, and Royal Television Society award winning The Real Full Monty: Ladies Night (2018) and (2019). Ashley’s show Flirty Dancing on Channel 4 completed it second hit series last December.

Fellow Diversity member Jordan Banjo is currently hosting the second series of BBC 1’s primetime show The Greatest Dancer.

Diversity continue to inspire the next generation of dancers and cannot wait to launch their online dance classes 20DV and return to Butlins this summer to showcase their 20DV experience dance academies.

The 2019 Edinburgh Festival smash-hit Friendsical is an original and unique new parody musical inspired by the gang in Friends, the iconic TV show.

When Ross’s wife leaves him for another woman, he fears he will never find love again. But then Rachel runs back into his life… will he end up with his one true love?

With original new songs such as (He’s her) Lobster!, Richard’s Moustache and You’re Over Me, When Were You Under Me?, the gang take on naked Thursdays, a power cut, and a dinosaur convention! What could possibly go wrong?

This is a loving parody not to be confused with the Warner Bros Entertainment Inc. series Friends

Riverdance: The New 25th Anniversary Show is a powerful and stirring reinvention of this beloved family favourite, celebrated the world over for its Grammy Award-winning music and the thrilling energy and passion of its Irish and international dance. Composer Bill Whelan has rerecorded his mesmerising soundtrack while producer Moya Doherty and director John McColgan have completely reimagined the ground-breaking show with innovative and spectacular lighting, projection, stage and costume designs and many of the cast for this rescheduled tour are so young that they were not even born in the year that the show first opened; 1995 at the Point Theatre in Dublin!The 25th Anniversary show catapults Riverdance into the 21st century and will completely immerse audiences in the extraordinary and elemental power of its music and dance. The reaction from the UK audiences in the handful of shows that did run before the tour was curtailed was unbelievable.

Now - just a little more than twenty-five years on! - both new and devoted fans of all ages will once again fall in love with the magic of Riverdance – the original, the best.

It is Riverdance, but not as you have ever seen it before.
