The Band Westend Run



The Band - Westend Run 

Hey Everyone

Well it’s finally here The Band Musical has arrived at the Theatre Royal Haymarket for its limited run. Trust me when I say you will want to grab a ticket while it’s here. The tour has done incredibly well and is still going and playing to packed out crowds every night and I want to bet London will be no exception.

If you grew up loving a boy band this show is something you can totally relate too in more ways than one.
Playing some of the classic hits the cast bring the house down and each song works perfectly for the story it is trying to tell throughout the show.

Check back a few blogs to see my review on the tour from Wimbledon in October.

I wish the cast an amazing run in London and remember they are here till Jan 12th when the tour continues so don’t miss out.

Have a great weekend 

Love Holly

Rock of Ages Tour - Liverpool Empire

Rock of Ages Tour - Liverpool Empire 



Hey Everyone 

So tonight we’ve been to see the Rock of Ages Tour on it’s stop on the tour in Liverpool.


It’s been a long wait for the show to return to the stage but for fans of previous productions - you have nothing to worry about the show was brilliant from the start and it all works so well. 


The whole cast work - we both agree star of the show for us tonight was Lucas Rush, his role as Lonny has the whole audience laughing and cheering the whole way through the show. 

The vocals from Danielle Hope, Luke Walsh and Zoe Birkett were all incredible and all massive hits with tonight’s crowd.


The crowd itself we both agreed were the loudest for a theatre show we’ve heard in a long time and shows the love of 80s Rock still lives on.


Looking ahead it would be good to see this cast and version of the show get a run in the Westend as well.

If you haven’t yet go grab a ticket or maybe a few for the tour and be prepared for a great night out.


Have a great week 

Love Holly and Jenni

The Band tour live in Wimbledon

The Band Musical - New Wimbledon Theatre



Hey Everyone 

Today’s blog is for all Take That fans out there and for anyone who grew loving a boy band. 
The Band musical tour arrived in London last night after just over a year on tour to sell out crowds around the UK. With the vast back catalogue of Take That’s hits it tells the story of friendship and growing up with a love of a boy band. 



The writers of the show have got it spot on with the references and I think for anyone who grew up with the love for any boy band not just Take That it’s got so many parts that are relatable in the story.



The atmosphere in the theatre from the start was great and at parts it really did feel like you were actually watching a concert. I’d tried hard not to look at too much about the show but was really impressed with the whole production. I mean how often can you say you see a plane on stage in a show. 



If you are a fan of Take That this is one I really recommend to grab a ticket for, check out the band website for more tour dates for the show and details for its Westend transfer later this year.

Thanks for reading and have a great week. 
Pop a comment below if you’ve seen the show and let us know what you think

Kerry Ellis - Live at Zedel

Kerry Ellis 

Live at Zedel Residency 2018

15th September 





Hey Everyone 

Tonight’s review is from Live at Zedel in Piccadilly in London.

I’ve been counting down for a while to see this show tonight and see Kerry live on stage again. 


The show itself is very different and more intimate from the tour earlier this year which from the start of the show made it more special to watch.

The whole way through the show we were treated to some of Kerry’s classics accompanied just by piano which had everyone singing along.




It was great to hear some favourites given new arrangements but I have to say hearing Kerry’s version of This is Me I really hope this makes it on to an album soon as I will be straight in to the queue to get it.


Kerry’s residency finishes on Sept 30th with tickets selling fast so make sure you don’t miss out on a lovely evening.


Thanks for reading and have a great weekend 


Love Holly

Eugenius Super Fan Sunday 2nd Sept 18

It was the bolt of lightning that bought the 80s back with a bang to the Westend earlier this year and now has struck a second time with a bigger bang at The Other Palace in London




Hey Everyone 

The 5 Star bolt of 80's joy is back

So following from the incredible acoustic press launch earlier this week Eugenius reopened this week to sell out crowds and standing ovations at The Other Palace.

With some clever new bits including the shows new hit song Hands Up which in my eyes is a great ad to the show and opens act 2 brilliantly. 

Emily Tierney nails her performance of the song perfectly in the show, it’s definetly one to head over to iTunes for and sounds great turned up loud.
Joanne Clifton has recorded it for the shows soundtrack and it was released this week. Pop over to iTunes and Spotify now and get it on repeat.




The show still has it’s incredible buzz from the first run earlier in the run.
With the add of Super fan Sunday which give you the chance to win exclusive prizes and also attend a QnA with the cast after the show which I attended today I think this makes the show something really different to others in the Westend right now.




It was great to hear from the creative team first and then from the cast who in turn answered some great questions from the audience. 
If you can grab a Sunday ticket you are in for a great afternoon. 
Head over to The Other Palace website now it’s not one to be missed.


The show is running now until October 7th and earns a 5⭐️ ⚡️from me 

Thanks for checking out the new review and have a great week.
If your popping in to see Eugenius drop a comment below and let us know what your thoughts are

Hey Everyone

So Tuesday evening was something very special 
Ahead of it's arrival back in the Westend at The Other Palace this weekend we were lucky to get a chance to not only see the cast in action but to see some of the shows biggest hit's live and acoustic.
The talent of the new cast is incredible and after hearing the songs acoustic it added something even more special to the magic of what will be seen on stage this weekend.


After a great QnA session which included the cast and creative team answering questions on the show it really added excitement before the shows return at the weekend.
The shows following has got bigger and bigger since the shows first run at the start of the year and shows no sign of stopping.


With a few short sleeps to go check out Joanne Clifton's new video now with the brand new song in the show Hands Up over on You Tube now and out at midnight on all platforms. It's one that will have you rocking out for sure.


Check back soon for our new show review
