BAND HUNT FOR HOUSEMATE WITH NEW SINGLE ‘SPARE ROOM’

By Rhodes Media BlogsNo Comments

Your favourite 21st century yacht-rockers HEIR are back with fuzzy-guitar riffs, glossy vocal harmonies and a refreshed sense of identity.

It is thanks to the Leeds quintet’s keen songwriting sensibility and infectious live energy that their journey pre-pandemic took them to Abbey Road studios with producer Ken Scott (The Beatles, David Bowie, Elton John), sold out shows at Camden Assembly (London) and Yes (Manchester) and more than a million streams of their tunes.

Now with a year and a half of reflective hibernation, lots of recording, ventures into other projects and distance from social media, Heir return feeling reinvigorated and raring to go.

And new single ‘Spare Room’ is released to the world on Wednesday October 13. Check out the video HERE

“I think we’ve used the time to be a lot more honest with ourselves about the kind of music we want to write,” said keyboardist Sam Perry.

“We’ve always admired the artists who manage to throw a party just by sounding like a band in a room – Prince, Fleetwood Mac, WHAM!, Steely Dan. We love this crossover world of 70s/80s pop songwriting that’s rooted in acoustic sounds but given a glamorous and mysterious quality by the guitar and synth work”.

Spare Room is plucked from the back catalogue of the Heir songbook, written by Sam, Tom Hammond (vocals/guitar) and Ste Fisher (guitar) during a period where the trio shared a house together.

Sam explained: “We’d reached the final day of a writing retreat in Northumberland, having exhausted all the deep and emotional ideas. Ste had been keeping us in the loop all week with the messages of both promise and disappointment that he’d been receiving to his Spare Room account from potential new housemates.

“He suggested we make a musical advert. Maybe we weren’t out of deep and emotional content after all and we were actually just mourning all the ones that got away!.”

As well as subconscious therapy via advert writing the song also proved to be a creative launchpad for the band mid-lockdown, helping the group find purpose and focus amidst the absence of live music.

“We were a little stunned, wondering how we were going to stay afloat as a band without gigging.” Tom said. “The video for Spare Room was sitting in the archives and, after re-watching it, it struck us how simple and true it felt.

“It became the blueprint for how we wanted to present ourselves and inspired us to produce a batch of some newly written songs, focusing on this ethos of squeezing more out of less and tapping back into the band in the room side to our sound that perhaps we’d lost touch with a little.”

Heir have recently come off another summer writing trip and boast of finding their truest sound yet – imagine someone gave Eagles synthesisers and Whitney Houston T-shirts and said throw us an all-night party!

The comeback starts however with the song that reminded the boys that before anything else they are five friends with five instruments who love playing songs together. As for the original spare room, both that room and a second room were filled and to this day Coral and Jen remain very good friends of all members of the band.

To celebrate the release of their new single Heir will be heading out on a mini-tour, performing in secret, quirky spaces around the UK.

November 18th – Leeds
November 19th – London
November (date tbc) – Manchester

Tickets and venue information available at www.heirtheband.com from Friday October 15

Shamrock Tenors Host St Patrick’s Day Spectacular In Birmingham

By Rhodes Media BlogsNo Comments

They have wowed audiences around the world – now Shamrock Tenors are heading to Birmingham for an unmissable St Patrick’s Day celebration.
Northern Ireland’s premier folk and vocal group play a headline show at Birmingham Symphony Hall on Thursday March 17.

Tickets for this one night only spectacular go on sale at 8am on Friday October 1 via www.cuffeandtaylor.com

Hailing from Ulster, this cross-community group features some of the country’s most exciting new musical talent who have not only featured in West End shows but won Irish dance championships across the world.

Formed in 2018, the group – whose line-up is Lisburn-born brothers Jack and Raymond Walsh and good friends Jamie Johnston, Matt Good and new recruit Matthew Campbell – have performed to audiences across four continents and won rave reviews wherever they play.

Their debut single, a cover of the iconic song Grace, went to Number 1 on the iTunes World Music Charts in June 2020 and their videos have amassed more than one million online views in the last year alone.

The band’s special concert at Belfast’s Ulster Hall, filmed during lockdown, has also been picked up by major streaming sites across the world.

Shamrock Tenors are on a mission to bring their favourite traditional Irish songs to a modern and worldwide audience.

So, Birmingham, put on your dancing shoes, grab yourself a drink and get ready for a night not to be missed in a city famed for its strong Irish community and historic links to the Emerald Isle.

Birmingham has the UK’s only Irish Quarter, centred in Digbeth, and the city’s annual St Patrick’s Day Parade attracts more than 100,000 visitors. It is believed to be the third largest St Patrick’s Day Parade in the world, after those in New York and Dublin.

Shamrock Tenors will treat the audience at Birmingham Symphony Hall to a stunning and eclectic mix of songs including classics Will Ye Go Lassie Go, Whiskey in the Jar and Wild Rover, to more modern hits by artists such as Van Morrison and U2.

Raymond Walsh, who starred in Les Misérables on London’s West End, says the band cannot wait to return to the stage in the UK.

He said: “Last St Patrick’s Day we were performing a show via live stream from Dublin. It is going to be such a good feeling to get back on stage in front of a live theatre audience again.

“Birmingham Symphony Hall is a beautiful venue and we are looking forward to bringing a similarly beautiful collection of the most beloved Irish folk songs ever written to this wonderful city. It’s going to be a St Patrick’s Day to remember – and one we cannot wait for!”

Together with building an impressive online and live following, Shamrock Tenors have appeared on many TV shows. Earlier this year, they were chosen by Tourism Ireland to feature in a new promotion championing Belfast and Northern Ireland.

The band’s beautiful rendition of singer-songwriter Alex Quinn’s captivating song Belfast featured Normal People star and Lisburn-born actor Desmond Eastwood in the video together with many of Northern Ireland’s most iconic places.

Tickets for Shamrock Tenors at Birmingham Symphony Hall go on sale at 8am on Friday September 24 via www.cuffeandtaylor.com

Two Dates Added To Bruce Dickinson’s Spoken Word Tour

By Rhodes Media BlogsNo Comments

Live Nation today announces two new additional dates on Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson’s first ever UK spoken word 2021 tour ‘An Evening With Bruce Dickinson’:

December 9 Liverpool Philharmonic Hall
December 10 Edinburgh Usher Hall

Tickets go on sale at 10am on Wednesday September 29 via ticketmaster.co.uk

These extra dates follow on from the six shows of the August 2021 tour, the final two of which had to be rescheduled due to Bruce’s quarantining further to a member of his household testing positive for Covid-19. These shows will now take place on October 16 at London’s 02 Shepherd’s Bush Empire and October 17 at The Alexandra in Birmingham (all tickets for original dates remain valid).

The Liverpool and Edinburgh December 2021 shows will be the final dates for this tour and no further shows will be added in 2021.

Bruce Dickinson is considered one of the world’s most storied musicians. Aside from decades spent delivering high-octane performances with his larger-than-life persona in Iron Maiden, Bruce has lived an extraordinary off-stage existence too.

A true polymath, his accomplishments include pilot and airline captain, aviation entrepreneur, beer brewer, motivational speaker, film scriptwriter, twice-published novelist and Sunday Times best-selling author, radio presenter, TV actor, sports commentator and international fencer… to name but a few.

So, there’s plenty to be entertained by, throughout the evening’s cornucopia of fascinating tales and derring-do exploits, all delivered by Bruce with characteristically infectious enthusiasm and wry wit.

Split into two parts, the first section of the show sees Bruce taking a humorous and often satirical look at the world from his own very personal perspective, treating the audience to private insights into his drive and ambition, peppered with plenty of Maiden anecdotes, and a myriad of other experiences encompassing not just the giddy heights but also the extreme lows, as told first-hand in his inimitable anarchic style, punctuated with photographs, videos and sometimes even erupting into song a-capella, to illustrate a point.

The final section of the evening is devoted entirely to a Q&A session, with the opportunity to pose questions on any subject whatsoever. As Bruce’s answers will all be completely improvised – the more left-field and quirky the question, the more interesting and compelling the response is likely to be!

Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to spend an up-close and personal evening with one of the world’s most captivating icons in an intimate environment, as Bruce Dickinson brings his Evening With show to the UK for the very first time, where you are guaranteed a highly entertaining and enjoyable night out and may even go home inspired to try something new.

Tom Seals to join stage sensation Marisha Wallace for UK Tour dates

By Rhodes Media BlogsNo Comments

Boogie Woogie piano genius and vocalist Tom Seals is set to join stage sensation Marisha Wallace for three UK tour dates.

Special guest Tom will open for vocal powerhouse Marisha at her eagerly-awaited sold-out show at London’s Arts Theatre, on September 27, as well as at Southampton’s Mayflower Theatre, on October 3, and another sell-out show at Lowther Pavilion, Lytham, on October 6.

Hailed by Jools Holland as ‘an extraordinary young talent’, Tom entertains with a mix of blues, jazz, swing and soul – alongside his signature boogie-woogie style.

Announcing Tom’s guest appearance, Marisha Wallace said: “Tom is an absolutely brilliant musician, so I am beyond excited to have him joining me at these three dates – I just know that people who love my music will also love him and have a great night out with both of us.”

Marisha’s UK Tour dates are:
SEP 24 – ILKLEY – KING’S HALL

OCT 1 – CARDIFF – ROYAL WELSH COLLEGE OF MUSIC AND DRAMA (DORA STOUTZKER HALL)
OCT 2 – BIRMINGHAM – HIPPODROME (PATRICK STUDIO)
OCT 3 – SOUTHAMPTON – MAYFLOWER THEATRE (MAST STUDIOS)
OCT 6 – LYTHAM – LOWTHER PAVILION

Tom Seals enjoys regular sell-out shows at the legendary Ronnie Scott’s and has played the world-famous Birdland Jazz Club in New York and the prestigious Dubai Opera House – and has been likened by Tom Jones to the likes of Little Richard.

Speaking opening for Marisha Wallace, Tom said: “I cannot wait to join Marisha as a guest for some of her tour dates. My music is all about feeling good, and having seen Marisha perform, I know that is what she does too – so it’s going to be a fantastic night of music to put a smile on people’s faces.”

Although her debut UK tour was cut short by the Covid-19 pandemic, that’s not held Marisha back – with the past year seeing her signed to Decca Records, releasing her debut album Tomorrow, and wowing new audiences with performances on Strictly Come Dancing, the Festival of Remembrance and the Royal Variety Performance. She also appeared in the hit Netflix show Feel Good alongside Mae Martin and Lisa Kudrow.

Marisha returned to the West End stage in the spring in the musical Hairspray, as Motormouth Maybelle, where she’s been winning nightly standing ovations for her outstanding performances.

From growing up on a farm in North Carolina, Marisha Wallace has gone on to Broadway and the West End, starring in huge hit musicals including Dreamgirls, Waitress, Aladdin and The Book of Mormon.

One of the most recognisable voices of a generation, Marisha’s latest tour promises a mix of tracks from the album, as well as songs from her summer EP release Soul Of The Stage, all delivered with that classic, unmistakable Marisha style.

‘Oh, What A Night’ in prospect as music icon Frankie Valli heads to the Yorkshire coast

By Rhodes Media BlogsNo Comments

Music legends Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons are bringing their hit-packed World Tour to Scarborough Open Air Theatre next summer.

The icons behind such timeless classics Walk Like A Man, Sherry, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Rag Doll, Oh, What A Night and Big Girls Don’t Cry headline the Yorkshire coast venue on Saturday June 25.

Tickets go on sale at 9am Friday September 24 from scarboroughopenairtheatre.com

Frankie Valli, who came to fame in 1962 as the lead singer of The Four Seasons, is hotter than ever in the 21st century. The volcanic success of the Tony Award-winning musical ‘Jersey Boys’, which chronicles the life and times of Frankie and his legendary group, has brought their music to a whole new generation of fans.

To date Frankie and The Four Seasons have sold more than 175 million records worldwide and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990. They play to huge audiences around the world and, together with their Scarborough OAT date, will play two nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall in 2022.

Scarborough OAT venue programmer Peter Taylor said: “The name ‘legend’ is often over-used but in Frankie Valli we have a true music icon.
“Frankie and The Four Seasons are behind some of the best-known songs of all time and we are absolutely honoured to be welcoming them here to Scarborough Open Air Theatre.

“Their stage shows are loved the world over and with Jersey Boys continuing to be a global smash hit, bringing the real thing here to the Yorkshire coast in 2022 is just fantastic.”

Frankie Valli has influenced many other great recording artists which was acknowledged in the dozens of tributes collected for Jersey Beat, the recently released Four Seasons boxed set.

Bee Gees legend Barry Gibb said: “Frankie Valli to me has become one of the hallmark voices of our generation. From the deepest emotions of his real voice to the power of his falsetto, he created a style that we all still strive to emulate.”

Billy Joel added: “I wrote ‘Uptown Girl’ as the flip side to the story of ‘Rag Doll.’ I always loved that record.”

And The Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson: “In the early ’60s the Four Seasons were my favourite group. I thought they were fantastic. The voice blend was fantastic. The competition helped me to get cracking. It inspired me, because they made good music.”

Tickets for Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons at Scarborough Open Air Theatre go on sale at 9am Friday September 24 from scarboroughopenairtheatre.com

The original Miss Saigon announces UK return with Dream Again tour

By Rhodes Media BlogsNo Comments

Musical theatre royalty – and two-time Disney Princess – Lea Salonga is coming back to the UK with her brand-new tour Dream Again.

Lea Salonga claimed her theatrical crown aged just 18 when she created the role of Kim in the epic musical Miss Saigon in the West End and subsequently on Broadway. She then went on to be the first actress of Asian descent to play both Eponine and Fantine in Les Misérables on Broadway.

Now the Olivier and Tony Award-winning star is returning to the country which launched her international stage career with a new tour heading to nine cities across the UK – including a performance at the Royal Albert Hall.

LEA SALONGA: DREAM AGAIN
Sat June 18 – LEICESTER, De Montfort Hall
Sun June 19 – SOUTHAMPTON, Mayflower Theatre
Tues June 21 – CARDIFF, St David’s Hall
Thurs June 23 – BIRMINGHAM, Symphony Hall
Fri June 24 – MANCHESTER, Bridgewater Hall
Sun June 26 – BRIGHTON, Brighton Dome
Tues June 28 – LONDON, Royal Albert Hall
Weds June 29 – CANTERBURY, The Marlowe Theatre
Fri July 1 – GLASGOW, Royal Concert Hall

Tickets go on sale on Friday September 25 from www.cuffeandtaylor.com

Lea Salonga: Dream Again follows Lea’s single release of the same name last year. The international collaboration brought together composers, musicians and a production team across three continents and five time zones, to help organisations aiding in COVID-19 relief.

The Dream Again tour will also celebrate the 30th anniversary of Lea recording the iconic Disney love song A Whole New World as Princess Jasmine in Aladdin in 1992. Younger fans will also recognise Lea’s pitch perfect tones as the singing voice of Fa Mulan in Mulan and Mulan II – these three films earning her the official title of Disney Legend.

Ahead of the concert tour, Lea said: “I owe the UK audiences and fans so much of my success, after they took me to their hearts as Kim in Miss Saigon– which I will always be so grateful for.”

Joining Lea for the first time on stage in the UK will be her brother, conductor and orchestrator Gerard Salonga, as musical director. Gerard is the resident conductor of the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra and a former assistant conductor of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra.

Lea added: “My first ever UK tour was in 2019 and it was a truly wonderful experience. I am now even more excited to return in 2022 – after such a long time unable to travel or to perform – especially with Gerard joining me as musical director.

“Returning to the stage and to international touring will be an absolute thrill and I am so excited to get back to the UK, to meet fans again and to perform some of my all-time favourite songs.”

Philippines-born Lea Salonga was just 17 years old when she was discovered by the producers of Miss Saigon and cast in the lead role of Kim. She originated the role in London and New York, winning the Olivier and Tony Awards for best actress in a musical for her work in the show. She returned to the West End in 2014 as part of the 25th anniversary celebrations for Miss Saigon at the Prince Edward Theatre.

Lea is also famed for her portrayal of both Eponine and Fantine in Les Misérables on Broadway, and in the musical’s 10th and 25th anniversary concerts in London.

She played her first UK tour in 2019 to rave reviews, with critics acclaiming her performances as ‘spine-tingling’ and ‘simply stunning’.

In 2020, Lea featured on the internationally acclaimed American TV series Great Performances on PBS – which celebrates iconic Broadway performers – in a special solo concert filmed live from the Sydney Opera House in late 2019, with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra – conducted by her brother Gerard.

Away from the stage, Lea is a judge on the Philippines’ version of The Voice and has sold a staggering 19 million albums worldwide – making her one of the best-selling Filipina artists of all time. Her 2017 album Blurred Lines was followed by a sell-out run at New York’s renowned Feinstein’s / 54Below.

Having previously performed for the likes of The Queen, Diana, Princess of Wales, and former US presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, Lea boasts numerous accolades including a Grammy Award nomination, an Olivier, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, and Theatre World Awards among others.

Ben Hatton, Director of Theatre Touring for promoters Cuffe and Taylor, said: “We are delighted to be bringing Lea Salonga back to the UK once more, following the success of her debut UK tour in 2019. Her voice is absolutely beautiful and these concerts are a must-see for every true musical theatre fan.”
