Musical Theatre Group Collabro will be embarking on their greatest hits tour this autumn including a date at Carlisle Sands Centre with support from local choir Staged Right Youth Theatre.
The World’s Most Successful Musical Theatre Group have today announced local choirs from each town and city will be joining them on their massive twenty-three-date Greatest Hits tour this autumn. The tour will see the band perform some of their most memorable tracks including ‘Stars’, ‘Bring Him Home’ and ‘Defying Gravity’.
All four members of Collabro - Michael Auger, Jamie Lambert, Matt Pagan from Carlisle and Thomas Redgrave - began their journey into the arts as members of youth choirs and youth theatre and are thrilled to create opportunities for young people across all the regions to perform in some of the UK’s most prestigious theatres.
Collabro met for their first rehearsal above a pub in London Bridge back in 2014. Soon after they auditioned for ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent, and a month later received a full standing ovation from all four judges and the full audience at the Hammersmith Apollo. They went on to win the competition with one of the highest voting majorities of any series, and their debut album Stars went straight into the UK album charts at number one, was quickly certified gold, and became the fasting selling album of 2014.
Last year, Collabro released their album Christmas Is Here comprising of a range of festive classics and original track, the titular ’Christmas Is Here’, which saw them team up once again with Ben Adams from A1.
The boys have also been keeping very busy during lockdown. Collabro’s Patreon has seen the boys create a space to bring fans (Collaborators) and the band closer together. From exclusive performances to Q&A's, live cook-alongs to game nights, it has been THE place for exclusive access and content.
After going from strength to strength with six top selling albums, four sell-out UK tours, two US tours, headline slots at the London Palladium, Wembley Stadium, the O2 arena and the Royal Albert Hall, this summer will see COLLABRO performing at In The Park with Katherine Jenkins, at Sound On The Ground in Blackpool this August and with Alfie Boe at Trentham Live this September before embarking on their major headline greatest hits tour for the autumn.
