Footloose Tour 2017

Following rave reviews Footloose Tour is returning for a second year and dates have now been announced for 2017

http://footloose-musical.com/

Kick off your Sunday shoes and cut loose as the explosive rock ‘n’ roll musical sensation Footloose bursts on to the UK stage in a remastered show sure to get your toes tapping. Based on the 1980s hit film that took the world by storm, Footloose the musical sizzles with the same spirit of youth, rebellion and romance.

City boy Ren thinks his life is over when he is forced to move to Bomont, an American rural backwater. But things are far worse than he could have ever imagined, as the town bans dancing. It isn’t long before Ren can’t resist breaking the rules, and he’s not alone.

Enjoy the best in UK musical talent, cutting-edge choreography and classic hits including Holding Out for a Hero, Almost Paradise, Let’s Hear it for the Boy and of course the unforgettable title track Footloose.

Produced by the Award-Winning Team at Selladoor Productions – Producers of Avenue Q and American Idiot

At A Glance

With twenty seven theatres visited so far on the Footloose Tour, the whole cast were given a week off.  After such energy on stage one would expect it’s to recharge their batteries.

No time for Gareth to recharge his, he was straight into exhibiting his Cuppanut infusion at the Speciality Food Fair in Olympia, London.

Resulting in:

WOW! Coconut Ginger & Tumeric has been shortlisted for the Good Choice! Quality Food Awards #cuppanut @Gareth_Gates

Wow another nomination! Coconut Infusion has been shortlisted for the ‘Quality Food Awards’ #cuppanut @Gareth_Gates

Following on from this Gareth (together with Speech Coach Chris Cooksey) hotfooted over to Belfast for the launch of the Qdos Pantomine Cinderella, taking place this Christmastime.

 

……..then rest!…………

 

Good luck with the awards and the final six theatre visits for Footloose.

Also one final opportunity to see Gareth perform at his rescheduled Acoustic Gig in Leicester on 30/10/16.

At A Glance

New Year 2016 begins with a bang for Gareth!

Not just one but two tours! (how does he do it)?

Gareth begins end of January 2016 with Footloose the Musical Tour, where he plays the part of Willard (the non-dancer who learns to dance).  Well Gareth(who, ever humble, always declares himself a non-dancer )is both singing and playing guitar  but will no doubt be good at dancing, when he appears on that stage (due to his relentless work ethic).

Gareth appears till 16th April 2016 before rejoining the Mad About The Musicals Tour on 21st Apri 2016l till 18th June 2016, where he performs with Michael Courtney and the female cast.

It’s back to the Footloose Tour from 20th June 2016 onwards.

The whole schedule reads like this  Wow!

Lots of luck Gareth. We look forward to seeing you on stage many times, in many different locations, around the country.

Mad About The Musicals 10th Anniversary Tour

Gareth teamed up with Michael Courtney to present the 10th Anniversary tour of Mad About The Musicals throughout October and November entertaining audiences in theatres around the country.

There were new songs from both current and older musicals. Gareth sang from Miss Saigon, Phantom, Jesus Christ Superstar and City of Angels (with Michael) amongst many others. Rave reviews followed like the one from YORK PRESS.

We are fortunate that this tour is recommencing for a 46 theatre tour in 2016 so the chance to see it all again.

Gareth sings Heaven On Their Minds from Jesus Christ Superstar

Gareth withdraws from Three Little Pigs Musical

Gareth has been forced to withdraw from the Three Little Pigs Musical in order to have treatment for his voice:

 

Important Announcement

Gareth Gates has unfortunately had to withdraw from the production of the Three Little Pigs. Gareth suffered a vocal injury last summer and although he is getting better, on the advice of his specialist he is taking some time off from singing this summer and working with Doctors and singing coaches to put these problems behind him for good.

Gareth said:
I’m absolutely gutted not to be able to take part in this fantastic show.. I was looking forward to returning to the West End and work with George and Anthony, who I consider to be good friends and the rest of the team, but I’ve got to be sensible and put my voice first. I’ll be back in the Autumn and I’m so sorry to anyone that’s already bought tickets, I have no doubt you will all enjoy the show.

Movies and Musicals at Christmas.

On Sunday 1st December Gareth appeared at the Apollo theatre London together with John Owen Jones, Louise Dearman, Sarah Lark,the LSG Orchestra and the West End Gospel Choir for an evening of Movies and Musicals at Christmas.

Gareth’s Eye of the Sparrow, Unchained Melody and his Beauty and the Beast duet with Louise Dearman were a huge hit with the audience.

Reviewers at West End Frame agreed, even mentioning Gareth’s vocal gymnastics being highly impressive!

While Gareth Gates is best known for his music career in recent years he has become an established musical theatre performer, having played leading roles in Joseph, Les Miserables, Legally Blonde and Loserville. I am always very technical when it comes to reviewing vocal performances, and I was completely taken aback by his incredibly soulful rendition of ‘His Eye Is On The Sparrow’. His vocal gymnastics were highly impressive! He then treated the audience to a strong performance of ‘Unchained Melody’ (why not?).

Will the slipper fit we wonder?…………… (Watch out for He’s behind you too)
