Footloose Tour 2017

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

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.

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.

As Christmas approaches and the year is drawing to a close, we reflect on another very busy year for Gareth.

October & November saw Gareth singing many new songs, together with  great reviews for the  Mad About The Musicals Show, with Michael Courtney as they toured theatres around the country.

Gareth then jetted off  for Asia, performing at the Starhill Gallery in Kuala Lumpur for their prestigious ‘Journey Through Time 2015’ showcase,. confirming to the fans ” What an epic trip in Asia. Met some new friends and inspiring people”.

With the odd jet lag tweet, Gareth began rehearsing his Prince Charming role for his Christmas season in Panto, where he has a ball!  Oh and he found time to invest in a Racehorse too!  No name as yet but some clever person suggested GG!

Only this week a six page OK! magazine feature on Gareth and his girlfriend Faye have let us into their world, revealing a little of their lifestyle and plans for the future. We are hoping Gareth’s “a year of hell” regarding his vocal chord haemorrhage, which he talked so honestly about, is at an end and his recovery is continuing.

With another busy year for Gareth approaching as he plays the role of Willard in the forthcoming Footloose The Musical Tour and a 2016 Mad About The Musicals Tour too, we would like to take this opportunity of wishing Gareth and his fans a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

Before we go- Here’s a quick reminder of that lovely Gareth voice and that lovely Gareth haircut!

Merry Christmas everyone!
