Theatre: Wicked UK Tour 2018!

Some fantastic news was announced on Thursday, Wicked is going to be flying around the UK on tour again in 2018. I will certainly be attending a couple of the dates when it comes to the North East, I mean I have only seen this incredible show 8 times . . .

Here are the dates of the show and ticket sales which start this week for some venues. If you have a ATG Theatre Card you get the lovely pre-sale! A week before they then go on general sale. The only decision now more than a year in advance is what date will be best to pick!

Theatre: West End – Day Seats

Over the years I have spend hundreds of pounds, actually probably closing in if not over a thousand. I would honestly be too scared to count up all of the ticket prices on shows both as touring versions coming to the North East and on many trips down to London for the West End shows.

With all of that though I also stumbled across something called “day seats” if you are not aware these are seats that are sold cheaper on the day of the show direct from the Theatre it is being performed at, usually opening at 10am.

Most day seats were kept in the front row, but that depends on Theatre/Show.

Top 10 – Theatre Shows in 2016

Before I get into the list I thought it would be a great idea to mention that you can read about my 2016 Theatre trips here so you have an idea of which shows that I had to choose from when putting together my top 10 list of the year.

When picking the shows that could be in the list, I managed to narrow it down to 16! So then having to make the final pick was rather difficult as that is how much I really did enjoy and love them.

Just missing out on the list was Rocky Horror, Guys and Dolls, The End of Longing and Wicked. It was so difficult to have to leave out No Man’s Land as it was an absolute honour seeing Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart on stage. As well as Nice Fish with Mark Rylance (who is to be made a Sir).

2016 at the Theatre

Here I go with an overview of my 2016 of theatre trips to see musicals and plays. Touring shows that have come to the North East at the Theatre Royal in Newcastle and the Sunderland Empire. As well as managing to have a few trips down to London to take in what the West End has to offer! You can check out the list of shows here. I have somehow managed to out do 2015 catching 31 shows in 2016!

Michael Ball and Alfie Boe – Together Tour (Newcastle)

together_final_zps7fyyicue

Date: Thursday 1st December 2016

Venue: Metro Radio Arena (Newcastle, UK)

In November Michael Ball and Alfie Boe released an album together with a collection of songs mainly from Musical Theatre. They have both had incredible careers on stage and it is brilliant that they decided to work together to create the album and a tour to go alongside it.

I had certainly had the tickets for quite a long time, which is always a shame when it comes to any concert, show or performance. But it did allow me to be able to listen to the album over and over and over again. Really appreciating how the pair bring out great things in each other the way they have arranged the lyrics in the songs.
