'Together' Tour stop off in Liverpool
Photos and review
2 of the greatest voices in the world, the
nation's leading musical theatre star, Michael Ball and the nation's favourite
tenor, Alfie Boe have both preformed at the Liverpool ACC, on 17 November 2016.
The tour comes on the back of the release of a joint album, called:-
'Together.' The pair released it in October 2016 and has since been
visiting a wide range of venues. Many have said that the their new song:-
'A Thousand Years' is so moving and have also raved about:- 'Bring Him
Home.' Many have been saying that this concert was amazing and hearing both of
the songs had been preformed live, was the "Icing on the cake!" as
1 audience member put it. For more information about both the new album and also
the show go to the musical star's
website We are told that the last date is
the 14 December 2016, of this tour, at the Blackpool Opera House. But you have
lots of other opportunities, including London at 2 venues on 8 December and 9
December, plus, Bournemouth, Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, Newcastle Upon
Tyne to name a few...
Josh Widdicombe has visited Liverpool
ALTHOUGH becoming a familiar face on
our TV screens as well as being a panellist on 'Mock The Week,'
this is the 1st time I had seen Josh Widdicombe perform his live stand up show
and I wasn't disappointed. A show of 2 halves, the 1st ˝ is opened by his
support Ivo Graham, an Eton educated comedian who, amongst other topics covered,
compared his new girlfriend to Amazon Prime by forgetting to cancel after the
free trial was up, and discussed awkward family holidays at the age of 25 with
glass walls in the bathroom.
Coming on straight after the support, Josh immediately started engaging with a
few members of the audience at the front, in particular finding amusement in the
fact that 1 15 year old, from Manchester, hadn't seen the millennium. This
quickly progressed into the usual relatable experiences of day to day life that
ordinarily you really don't think a great deal about. He talks about a range of
subjects from the joys of owning a contactless debit card to the frustration of
having to use your pin when it doesn't work to being asked if the card had a
nickname to which he retorts:- "what like Visa Geezer?" He
manages to cram a lot into the 1st ˝ of the show talking about holiday
souvenirs, both receiving and being asked to bring them back, to shop bought naan, cheese scales and curry scales.
After a short break Josh returns with red wine in hand to talk about growing up
in Dartmoor and the myth of the "Hairy Hand" that used to steer
you off the road, made funnier by the fact his friend described it as invisible.
He talks about his fear of flying and having to travel on the sleeper from
Edinburgh recalling, in horror, how, with ninety minutes to kill, he decides he
will have a go on one of the massage chairs, an experience he compares to being
sexually molested on a public thoroughfare opposite the women toilets.
Bringing the show to a conclusion with 3 hilarious facts about life in Exeter as
passed down from his mother, it may have been a long overdue visit to Liverpool,
Widdicombe proved himself to be 1 of the
top UK comedians on the circuit.
Jess Glynne at the Liverpool
Photos and review
ALL across the UK it has been a similar
story as Jess
Glynne plays to sell out arenas on her
'Take Me Home' tour. The Echo Arena in Liverpool, her latest stop on
the tour, is no different. Following sets from 2 support acts, Raye and Wretch
32, Jess Glynne takes to the stage opening this family friendly show with:-
'Don't Be So Hard On Yourself' accompanied by an explosion of glitter
It's all a far cry from 2 years ago when nobody knew who Jess Glynne was before that all changed as her debut single,
turned her into a fully fledged, arena filling superstar by hitting Number 1 in
the UK Singles Chart before going on to become the 3rd fastest streamed song of
2014. Airing songs from her hit debut album:- 'I Cry When I Laugh',
the evening had a distinct party feel to it with Jess entertaining the audience
throughout with a string of hits backed by a big band and a set of backing
dancers. Midway through the show, a quick costume change saw the singer reappear
in a full length sequinned coat before heading towards the finale of the evening
with hits such as:- 'Right Here' and 'Big Love.'
At just before 10:30pm, the night ended as it had started with the pop star
making her exit leaving an ecstatic crowd very satisfied and drenched in
