Last big band tour for Brendan
Strictly Come Dancing star Brendan Cole has announced that he will revive his hugely popular 2019 tour of Show Man for 2020.
This will be his last big band tour after 10 years of touring five exceptional critically acclaimed productions.
Something for everyone
Taking its inspiration from the magic of theatre and the movies, Show Man brings something for everyone. With his amazingly talented hand-picked championship dancers and scorching eight piece live big band and singers, Brendan will bring audiences many of their favourite Strictly dance styles with choreography full of excitement, intimacy, emotion and skill, with laughter and chat throughout.
This is no ‘sit back and watch’ production;
Each show is full on high energy dance dynamite, up close and personal, with superb choreography, stunning lighting and amazing special effects.
Expect a cheeky Charleston to Pencil Full of Lead, a sexy Salsa to Despacito, music from Beggin’ to Bublé, plus numbers from The Greatest Showman and La La Land.
Brendan Cole is best known from TV favourite Strictly Come Dancing where he danced the first show of the first series and lifted the very first glitterball trophy.
Brendan built himself a bit of a reputation for being the bad boy of the series because of the way that he stretched or broke the rules in order to deliver a spectacular performance.
Audiences for Show Man can expect nothing less.
Brendan tells me that he is really excited to be bringing back Show Man having toured this production early in 2019.
This is he says his most exciting tour to date it’s so dynamic and theatrical – much more so than any previous tour.
He has quite a supporting cast of five male dancers, three female dancers, choirs, a violinist and brand new staging which allows the choreography to be exciting and different; bigger and better lifts, some very strong theatrical numbers as well as a new look set, it really is something special!
The aim says Brendan is to wow the audience and give them everything they’d expect and much, much more.
Fifth theatrical production
Show Man is Brendan’s fifth theatrical production and will see him tour the UK for the twelfth time.
He has presented ten hugely successful concert tours to date:
- Live & Unjudged (2010/2011 x 2/2012),
- Licence to Thrill (2013 & 2014),
- A Night To Remember (2015/2016) and
- All Night Long (2017/2018)
This Brendan says will be his last big band tour after touring for so many years.
He has loved every second of being on the stage with his friends who have now become family.
It’s time for something different he says, feels honoured to be taking Show Man out for one last run.
He is he says “so proud of this production and I’m going out on a high”
