Musical theatre group Collabro will be the support act for Cliff Richard on his nationwide Just Fabulous Rock ‘n’ Roll tour this summer which takes in Stansted Park on Sunday, June 18.
Spokeswoman Sarah Rhodes said: “Collabro first rose to prominence in 2014 when they won Britain’s Got Talent. Since then they have released a number-one debut album Stars, followed by Act Two which peaked at number two in the charts in 2015.
“Most recently Collabro released their highly anticipated third studio album Home- a collection of stage classics, fan favourites and their ﬁrst original song, Lighthouse. This new record is receiving exceptional critical reviews and further aﬃrms Collabro’s position as the most successful musical theatre recording group in the world.
“They have toured the UK and overseas extensively, notably performing for more than 30 million people on Japanese TV show Music Station on two separate occasions – receiving a Gold Disc for Best International Artist alongside Sam Smith and Meghan Trainor. They have also completed two tours of America and signed a major US record deal”.
Made up of Jamie Lambert, Michael Auger, Matthew Pagan and Thomas Redgrave, Collabro are delighted to be supporting Cliff Richard.
Jamie said: “Cliff Richard is a true music legend and we are thoroughly honoured to be given this opportunity to support him on tour.
“The venues for the Just Fabulous Rock ‘n’ Roll Tour are absolutely magnificent and we will look forward to what is sure to be a fantastic couple of weeks on the road with a music icon.”
The Just Fabulous Rock ‘n’ Roll Tour celebrates Cliff’s 102nd album Just… Fabulous Rock ‘n’ Roll and sees the singer return to his roots with a celebration of his favourite songs. These include Cliff’s renditions of tracks such as Roll Over Beethoven, Great Balls of Fire, Sweet Little Sixteen and his very own debut single, Move It. The album also features a duet with fellow idol Elvis Presley on Blue Suede Shoes.
