20 years after his last show at Symphony Hall, Gary Barlow will return to Birmingham next month for two sell-out concerts. The British singer-songwriter and record producer found worldwide fame as a member of British pop group Take That - whose musical opened at Birmingham Hippodrome last night as part of a major UK tour.
THE BAND is a new musical about what it’s like to grow up with a boyband. For five 16 year-old friends in 1992, ‘the band’ is everything. 25 years on, we are reunited with the group of friends, now 40-something women, as they try once more to fulfil their dream of meeting their heroes.
The UK Tour went on sale on Monday 3 April nationwide, and, within the first two hours, took £2 million at the Box Office, making it the fastest selling theatre tour ever.
Director of Sales & Marketing, Richard Loftus, attended the opening night in Birmingham yesterday. THE BAND, which runs at Birmingham Hippodrome until 12 May, is produced by David Pugh & Dafydd Rogers and Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Mark Owen, Robbie Williams.
