Announced today, Joe is to star as Joseph in the forthcoming UK tour of Joseph & the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. This will be Joe’s first major role in a long-running musical, and will follow his run as Tommy at Blackpool Opera House in September (see item below for more details).
Dates and venues are yet to be announced, although the King’s Theatre, Glasgow from 10th-14th May seems to be on the itinerary.
Keep up to date with all things ‘Joseph’ over the coming months on our forum thread here.
Following in the footsteps of Roger Daltrey in the 1975 film adaption, Joe McElderry is set to bring The Who’s “Tommy” to life opening the UK tour in Blackpool this September. No stranger to “Tommy, the Musical”, Joe took to the stage as the title character in 2012 for a one off performance at London’s Prince Edward Theatre. Joe says “I am thrilled to bits to be asked to play Tommy as it’s a rock musical that is legendary and, I absolutely love the Who’s music.”
For a limited period you can get £10 off the price of any ticket to see the legendary rock musical at the Opera House Blackpool, at the time of booking either online or in person quote ‘FANS’ to receive the £10 discount. Offer only available until 31st March 2015, available on any performance from Friday 11th September – Saturday 26th September 2015. Click here to Book
