Relive the two-time Olivier Award winner’s ‘Heroes’ tour.
Continuing to stream productions in the New Year, The Shows Must Go On has announced this weekend’s theatrical offering on their YouTube channel. Michael Ball’s 2011 ‘Heroes’ concert will be made available online for 48 hours from 8 January at 7pm.
The Heroes concert is a celebration of musical theatre legends, as well as groundbreaking twentieth-century artists. Songs featured in the concert include “Summer Wind” by Frank Sinatra, “New York State of Mind” by Billy Joel”, as well as Andrew Lloyd Webber and Stephen Sondheim songs.
One of Britain’s beloved theatre stars, Michael Ball is perhaps best known for his acclaimed performance as Edna Turnblad in Hairspray, which he’s set to reprise in April at the London Coliseum. In a West End career of over 35 years, he’s starred in Les Miserables, The Phantom of the Opera, Sweeney Todd and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
Michael Ball’s Heroes concert will be available to watch in the UK, USA, Canada and Japan only.
