Following in the footsteps of Roger Daltrey in the 1975 film adaptation JOE MCELDERRY is set to bring The Whos TOMMY to life opening the UK tour in Blackpool this September. 

JOE MCELDERRY shot to fame on reality TV show the X-factor in 2009 beating Olly Murs to the reality title, since then Joe has sold over half a million singles and gained a nationwide following.

No stranger to Tommy the Musical, Joe took to the stage as the title character in 2012 for a one off performance.

JOE MCELDERRY says "I am thrilled to bits to be asked to play Tommy as its a rock musical that is legendary and, I absolutely love the Whos music."

Absolutely thrilled to bits for him. Opera House is 3,000 seater with one of biggest stages in Europe. The dates are also right in the middle of the Illuminations when the town is packed so book your accommodation early!  :hurrah:

Thrilled to bits and back. I've wanted to see Joe in this role again since the London production.

Prayers answered.

Paul Nicholas played Cousin Kevin in the film. Great credentials.  :thumbsup:

I do hope it precedes a full UK tour.   I would be delighted if it came to the Mayflower in Southampton.  Most tours do.  Will Young was in Cabaret which came down here.
