Currently at #1 in the midweeks with his new album ‘Stages’, multi-Platinum and multi-million selling artist Josh Groban can now confirm a UK tour that culminates with a major London show at the Eventim Apollo.
Renowned for his show-stealing guest appearances on Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Josh Groban marked the album’s UK release with a performance and interview on The One Show (watch him sing ‘What I Did For Love’ here: http://bcove.me/pb1c165m) which was followed by an appearance on The Paul O’Grady Show. He’ll next be seen on Loose Women on April 27th before returning for Sunday Night At The Palladium on May 10th.
Josh Groban’s UK shows are:
28th – Manchester, Bridgewater Hall
29th – Birmingham, Symphony Hall
1st – London, Eventim Apollo
‘Stages’ is a collection of some of the greatest musical theatre songs of all time, which Groban describes as “gorgeously arranged songs that have stood the test of time,” and which he was drawn to because of their combination of “incredible melody with an incredible story.”
Recorded with producers Humberto Gatica and Bernie Herms in both Los Angeles and London’s Abbey Road (with a 75-piece orchestra), ‘Stages’ features songs from musicals including Les Misérables (‘Bring Him Home’); Carousel (‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’); Into the Woods (‘Children Will Listen’); Phantom of the Opera (‘All I Ask of You’) and The Wizard of Oz (‘Over the Rainbow’).
‘Stages’ features three duets: Kelly Clarkson is featured on ‘All I Ask of You’ (“she can, quite simply, do anything”); Audra McDonald sings on ‘If I Loved You’ (“in my head I heard her on this and to sing it in the room with her was a dream come true”); and trumpeter Chris Botti plays on ‘Old Devil Moon’ (“he plays with such control and expressiveness”).
