Joe is currently travelling around the UK with the touring production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. The show, a perennial favourite with West End audiences and schools alike, has proved the perfect vehicle for Joe’s first full length season in a musical. Just take a look below at a small selection of reviews from around the country.

joe-mcelderry-as-joseph-102616“Now another reality TV star Joe McElderry …… follows Mead, and he may just be the best sung Joseph there’s ever been, bringing a vocal flair to Joseph that’s utterly ravishing.”  Mark Shenton, The Stage

“X-Factor finalist Joe McElderry plays the title role in this evergreen musical and in the words of his mentor Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, the South Shields lad absolutely smashed it.”  ….
“And Joe breathed even new life into this middle-aged musical which retells the Biblical tale of Joseph, 12th and favourite son of Jacob, sold into slavery by his jealous brothers. His voice was solid and silken and, simply, faultless, rendering Close Every Door possibly the best version I have ever heard.”  
Janet Tansley, Liverpool Echo

“For five stars, a show has to go the extra distance, providing a particular kind of pleasure. For Joseph, that was to see a well-loved (or even well-worn) standard that has been doing the rounds for 36 years – albeit periodically renewed – completely reinvigorated by the presence of the best sung Joseph I’ve ever heard, Joe McElderry.” Mark Shenton again! The Stage

“McElderry ….. has bags of charm and charisma and a really fine voice that sings the music itself memorably.” Mel Cooper, Plays To See

” In a role that has also been famously performed by Philip Schofield and Donny Osmond, Joe McElderry admittedly had some big shoes to fill, but he had no trouble in doing so. Backed by an energetic and talented cast, McElderry’s Joseph shone almost as brightly as his fancy coat. His faultless vocal talent was matched only by fellow talent-show contestant Lucy Kay in her role as the Narrator. Both performers were outstanding; the backbone to a timeless family show that had the audience at the New Theatre on its feet by the megamix at the end.”  sophums,  Daily Info

The show is also receiving an impressive 4.5/5 stars from TicketMaster reviewers: TicketMaster Reviews

Joseph plays until 9th July. You can see the full schedule here with easy booking links, or visit the Joseph the Musical website.



Following Joe’s foray into musical theatre, he will be touring again later this year with a new “Northern Light” show. There’s one date in April in South Shields, already sold out, but the main tour will run from August through to November. See Joe’s website for more details, or come into the JoeNuts forum  where we have a whole board dedicated to the tour.



Joe is currently starring in the QDos production of Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs at Hull New Theatre. Check out this review from HeyToday

Joe McElderry is fantastic as The Man in the Mirror. A truly charming guy who was born to entertain, his enthusiasm and energy are contagious, inviting the audience to get even more into the festive spirit each time he bursts into song. With his fifth album soon to be released, it’s a great opportunity to see Joe perform live on stage, all while dressed in a glittery, shimmering costume that would put Elvis Presley’s wardrobe to shame.”

Don’t hang around to get your tickets. The show runs till 3rd January, following which, Joe will be embarking on a UK Tour in the title role of Joseph & the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.
