Grantham date for West End star Elaine Paige
West End and Broadway star Elaine Paige is to perform at Grantham Meres Leisure Centre this October.
Tickets go on general sale today for the concert being held on Friday, October 21 - the only date in the region on Elaine’s tour.
‘Stripped Back’ will see Elaine perform her favourite tracks from an array of contemporary songwriters, with a small group of musicians.
This follows Elaine’s last solo tour in 2014 which was a sellout celebratory concert encompassing her incredible 50-year career and saw her say ‘farewell’ to a full touring schedule.
The show will celebrate the contemporary songwriters she loves, such as Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman, Jim Webb, Burt Bacharach, Leonard Cohen, Sting, Elton John, Lennon and McCartney and many more.
Elaine has performed live in concert all over the world and as a recording artist has worked with legendary producers such as Tony Visconti, Dennis Lambert, Peter Matz, and Phil Ramone amongst others and has released 22 solo albums (four multi-Platinum, nine Gold,) been featured on seven cast recordings and has had major worldwide hits with songs such as Memory (Cats) and I Know Him So Well (Chess.)
As a musical theatre performer Elaine has made a major contribution to the modern musical. She has starred in more smash hit West End and Broadway musicals than anyone else of her generation and continues to present the hugely successful weekly BBC Radio 2 show Elaine Paige on Sunday, which is devoted to musical theatre and film music, and continues to delight audiences of over 2.5 million listeners each week with its mix of music, news and interviews.
Tickets vary in price from £99 for VIPs, down to £55, £38.50 and £28.50.
