Following two smash-hit UK tours in 2012 and 2013, The West End Men are returning with their third tour, due to phenomenal popular demand. Some of the finest performers of this generation have joined together to dazzle the stage with timeless songs and fantastic performances, bringing the music, spotlights and show-biz from the heart of the West End to the rest of the UK.
In addition to the announcement that the X-Factor’s Marcus Collins has joined this year’s this hotly anticipated tour, we can now confirm that the line-up will also include the fabulous Glenn Carter, James Bisp and Alexis Gerred. Together, they have starred in West End hits such as Jesus Christ Superstar, Hairspray, The Phantom of the Opera and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. These handsome gents will showcase some of the nation’s most-loved musical theatre songs, from classic shows such as West Side Story, Les Miserables and South Pacific as well as a collection of rock & pop hits from artists and bands as diverse as Queen and Stevie Wonder. The gorgeous Nadia Forde will be appearing as a special guest at Dublin, Watford, Guildford and Liverpool.
Previous stars of The West End Men include Lee Mead, Matt Rawle, Stephen Rahman-Hughes, Glenn Carter, Ramin Karimloo, David Thaxton and the lovely Matt Willis. In December 2013 the Men were invited to Singapore to present the first ever symphonic version of the show before taking up a short residency at the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End. Their popularity has proven that there’s no business like show business and this year’s superb performers are sure to match the success.
