A celebration of the music of West End favourite Michael Ball takes the stage in Stevenage this week.
If you missed Michael Ball in concert, don’t panic.
Love Changes Everything, starring Michael Courtney and his band, will appear at the Gordon Craig Theatre for one special performance on Thursday, June 12.
Tickets for the show cost £20 and £18 concessions.
This spectacular salute to the king of the West End musical pays tribute to his greatest hits, including the stirring Empty Chairs At Empty Tables and Bring Him Home from Les Miserables, the haunting Gesthemene from Jesus Christ Superstar, and the glorious This is the Moment from Jekyll & Hyde.
Michael Courtney, together with his live band, presents two hours of Michael Ball bliss, raiding a wonderful back catalogue of concert favourites and featuring classics such as Holding Out for a Hero, Something Inside So Strong, and One Night Only.
And the finale? It could only be the song that shot Michael Ball to fame – Love Changes Everything from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Aspects of Love.
Singer Michael Courtney has appeared in acclaimed theatre productions in the West End and on tour, including playing Joseph in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Rolf in The Sound of Music and Edmund in King Lear.
He has also toured with Jasper Carrot, Anne Charleston and Gene Pitney.
Thursday’s concert at the Gordon Craig, in Lytton Way, Stevenage, starts at 7.45pm.
