Saturday Line-Up

Peter Andre

Peter Andre is an accomplished global media star known for his successful music and television career. Peter hit a peak in his music career during the 1990’s when he became the sixth highest selling artist in the UK. He had numerous number one hit singles, two number one albums and toured all over the world collecting a multitude of national and international awards along the way. His chart success led to major tours throughout the UK, Europe, Asia and Australia.

Last year, Peter recorded a new album with a brand new sound and took his music career in a completely different direction. The mix of genres in the Big Night album is where Peter’s heart lies and it’s something he’s always wanted to do. On a recent trip to New Orleans he stopped to watch some musicians jamming in the street and ended up joining in, he had so much fun doing that and wanted to make an album that got across the same element of fun to the listeners, while at the same time has the music he loves both listening and performing to.

Lulu

Back by popular demand after her hugely successful 2016 tour, Lulu is on the road again with her biggest tour yet!

Lulu has always been ‘All About the Music’ and that’s what she delivers in a power-packed performance full of her hits, new songs and fan favourites. You’ll be on your feet from beginning to end. An intimate look into the incredible musical journey of a music legend, Lulu’s show is peppered with anecdotes from a life in the fast lane (or in the limelight).

“I absolutely love playing live and can’t wait to be out on the road again.” Love Lulu

“The thrill is there as Lulu relights the fire…outstanding as her voice soared the auditorium”
The Nottingham Post

“Her voice has lost none of its sassy, soulful crackle and the original songs are smart, intelligent and seductive”
The Times

“Still packing a punch…her passion and talent for music is clearly her number one priority… and long may it last”
The Birmingham Post

“Stand back, Florence and Paloma, Lulu has re-lit her fire”
York Press

Lulu celebrated her 50th year as a recording artist with her latest album with Decca Records ‘Making Life Rhyme’ which is out now!

Gabrielle

Gabrielle’s career got off to an incredible start in 1993 when she broke the record for the highest chart debut by a female with the single ‘Dreams’. In 2000 Gabrielle notably returned to the charts with the hit single Rise, which featured a Bob Dylan sample of ‘Knocking on Heavens Door’ and multi-platinum album ‘Rise’ followed in the same footsteps and topped the charts at number one.

In an industry where longevity is becoming increasingly rare, the hits have been unstoppable: ‘Give Me A Little More Time’, ‘If You Ever’, ‘When A Woman’, ‘Sunshine’ and ‘Out of Reach’ which she wrote for the soundtrack of Bridget Jones’ Diary. Then there are the multi-platinum albums; ‘Gabrielle’ ‘Rise’ and ‘Dreams Can Come True’. Gabrielle recently featured on Naughty Boy’s album Hotel Cabana alongside the likes of Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and Emeli Sande.

After such an amazing response from audiences and press across the U.K Gabrielle has decided it’s time to do her own headline tour with her stripped back band performing all the hits and more up close and personal. “There are songs I haven’t performed for years that I think it’s time to bring out of the archives and who knows by then I may have a couple of new ones to add as well, I love performing live, when I’m at home being Mum it’s so easy to forget that there are people who come along to see me and sing along to songs I’ve written, it’s an amazing feeling. I’m so grateful that after 23 years I still have the chance to perform and record, it’s what I know and what I love, when I said Dreams can come true, I wasn’t wrong!”

Lemar

Lemar is one of the most successful male British solo artists of the last decade, having had seven UK Top 10 singles and selling over two million albums worldwide.

His awards include three MOBO Awards (two for Best UK male and one for Best Album) and two BRIT Awards for Best British Urban Act.

Over the years, Lemar has shared the stage with Beyoncé, Lionel Richie, Mary J Blige, George Benson, and Justin Timberlake, amongst others.

Reggie N Bollie

Pop/Afrobeats/Dancehall duo Reggie N’ Bollie rose to fame after their appearance on popular U.K. talent contest The X Factor in 2015.

The Ghanaian-born artists were 1st Runners Up and their instant popularity with viewers and audiences allowed them to launch a successful career in UK.

Among their fans was their X Factor mentor Cheryl, who continued to support them in the months after the show.
Both Reggie Zippy and Bollie Babeface moved to the U.K. from Ghana in 2010 after having successful solo careers in Ghana. Their energetic performances and infectious style convinced Simon Cowell to sign them to his Syco Music label, as he often did with any X Factor runners-up who displayed the right potential. Five months after their appearance on the reality show, Reggie N’ Bollie released their first single, “New Girl,”.

They’ve been tipped by music pundits to be the ones to watch in the coming years. They are already headlining their own shows and performing at major festivals and arenas in UK and across Europe.
Reggie N Bollie have come a long way and as their slogan goes, they are on a World Domination Mission.

Musical Youth

Musical Youth is a British Jamaican reggae band. They are best remembered for their successful 1982 single “Pass the Dutchie”, which became a number 1 hit around the world. The band recorded two studio albums, and released a number of successful singles throughout 1982 and 1983, including a collaboration with Donna Summer. Musical Youth earned a Grammy Award nomination before disbanding in 1985. The band returned in 2001 as a duo. Iconic reggae act Musical Youth are back touring the UK with new single “Harder They Come”.

Navi as Micheal Jackson

Navi is the world’s no.1 MJ impersonator and he has been performing as an MJ impersonator for the past 24 years.

The title of World’s no.1 is not just based on Navi’s continued association with Michael Jackson’s world (MJJ Estate, Sony BMG, fellow entertainers, MJ’s family, MJ fans/fanclubs) but shown by MICHAEL JACKSON himself.

Navi is the ONLY Michael Jackson tribute that Michael has applauded on several occasions, given a standing ovation to, invited to his home Neverland, and personally chosen to work as a decoy over a period of many years.

Over a period of many years (1992 – 2009) Navi was hand-picked by Michael. These included coming out of hotels as a decoy, promotion of his forthcoming tours, launches of his albums and use of Navi as a body double for his planned ‘This Is It’ concerts (London O2).

In 2003 Navi was invited to perform at Michael Jackson 45th birthday party in Los Angeles. Navi was then invited to visit Michael’s personal home Neverland. Navi took up this honour the following day, which was a surreal experience. Navi spent the day inside Neverland, visited Michael’s cinema, zoo, went on few of his theme park rides and had a barbeque on the grounds.

The Upbeat Beatles

It’s 1963 and a new band is taking the country by storm, playing a heady mixture of Blues, Motown and Rock ’n’ Roll…

With the songs that changed a generation, this show will have you tapping your feet from the opening bars…..dancing in the aisles…..and screaming like you did (or would have!) in ’63!

From the depths of Liverpool’s Cavern Club all the way up to that famous rooftop on The Apple Building, The Upbeat Beatles will take you on a journey that is the story of The Beatles through their songs. Let them take you on a Magical History Tour!

Since 1997 The Upbeat Beatles have been the best in the business at recreating the excitement, authentic sound and downright raw energy of the original Fab Four.

The Upbeat Beatles are four supremely talented guys.

13 guitars, great powerhouse vocals and close harmonies, teamed with a driving backbeat to give you a night you’ll never forget.

The Upbeat Beatles are in constant demand and their hard earned reputation for authenticity and attention to detail has taken them around the world, playing to ecstatic audiences. These have included The Jordanian Royal Family, Hollywood film actor Michael Douglas, the Prime Minister of China and, more recently, The Lord Mayor of London who said:

“That’s the first time anyone has ever actually danced at this annual function!!!”.
