Music Fest

Music lovers, are you ready? Then prepare for a sizzling summer at The Grand Theatre, Blackpool. With a massive nine different music shows to choose from, whether you love Rock, Pop, Blues, Ballads or you’re a huge Abba fan, they have the shows for you!

Music has always been a cornerstone of The Grand’s programming and, over the years, the venue has seen some of the best music performances in the country. Now, in a tribute to some of the greats, The Grand offers a full six weeks of smash hits with the Grand Music Fest 16.

This spectacular line-up includes a tribute to Abba with Dancing Queen. Relive the nights when Abba ruled the dance floor and experience the classic 70’s era in its full glory. Glitz assured, this is the golden age of pop revived.

Featuring a tribute to one of the most successful bands of all time, Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, Let’s Hang On takes you on a musical journey through the prolific career of the ever popular band.

There can’t be many people who haven’t heard of The Blues Brothers, and, for five nights in August, The Grand welcomes the award winning production Chicago Blues Brothers. Celebrating over 30 years of the Blues Brothers phenomenon, this explosive, non-stop party night is packed with the greates Blues, Motown & Soul songs from both of the Blues Brothers movies.

For a whirlwind trip from the 50’s through to the best songs of today, Forever In Blue Jeans promises a great night out for the family. Featuring a talented cast of seven singers delivering a selection of classic songs from Brenda Lee, The Carpenters, Motown and Carole King, this one promises an eclectic mix sure to please.

If the 70’s were your era, then you will be as excited as I am at the next offering. Solid Gold 70’s features glam rock greats, disco hits, power ballads and party anthems from the likes of Queen, Sweet, 10cc, David Essex, Suzi Quatro, Elton John and many, many more too numerous to list.

Staying with glam rock, T.Rexstasy are officially recognised as the No. ! group dedicated to one of the greatest glam rockers of them all, Marc Bolan of T.Rex.

Two of the most influential albums of the 70’s and arguably of all time The Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here, will be performed from start to finish, along with a range of classic Pink Floyd when Think Floyd takes to the stage.

Crammed with chart toppers, The Magic of Motown features the music of The Four Tops, Supremes, temptations, Jackson 5, Isley Brothers, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross and many more.

It’s hard to believe that it is more than 30years since Karen Carpenter passed away. Voice of the Heart celebrates the music and leads you on a magical journey.

In celebration of one of the most successful boy bands of all time, The Take That Experience Show – Relight The Fire will deliver favourites both old and new including Back For Good, Could It Be Magic, Shine, Rule The World and many more of their hits.

A very special tribute to the late, great, Ben E King will feature in the one-off performance of The Drifters iconic selection of hits, including Under The Boardwalk, Saturday Night At The Movies and so much more.

Wow, I need to take a deep breath after all that lot. Such an exciting summer ahead of us music fans, I for one, can’t wait.
