Singer Elaine Paige comes to Manchester this weekend as part of her 23 date series of concerts from October to December 2016, entitled‘Stripped Back’, which will see her perform her most popular hits as well songs from her favourite songwriters.
The musical theatre legend will be at the Bridgewater Hall on Saturday 8 October and Opening Night are off to see her in action.
Elaine says: “I’m so excited about this series of ‘weekend’ concerts, this is going to allow me to do something completely different. A brand new show celebrating songwriters I love such as Andrew Lloyd Webber, Tim Rice, Harry Nilsson, Jim Webb, Burt Bacharach, Sting, Lennon & McCartney … the list goes on. Their music has been the soundtrack to all our lives, not just mine. And it’s the ideal opportunity to perform in an intimate way … I’m doing these new shows ‘Stripped Back!”
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, & Phil Ramone amongst others.She has starred in more smash hit West End & Broadway musicals than anyone else of her generation.
We are big fans here at Opening Night of Elaine’s successful weekly BBC Radio 2 show Elaine Paige on Sunday, which is a blissful two hours of songs from stage and screen. If you are heading down to the concert at the Bridgewater Hall on Saturday then give us a tweet on @OpeningNight_ or if you’ve already seen Elaine in one of her tour dates let us know what you thought.
