Two very special extra nights of live music are being added to the bill for Lytham Festival 2018.
On Monday July 16 the world’s most successful musical theatre group Collabro will perform on the Pavilion Stage at Lowther Pavilion. Their last Lytham Festival performance saw them close last year’s event with the hugely successful West End Proms show.
And on Tuesday July 17, The Mersey Beatles – who played a sell-out show at the Pavilion Stage in 2017 – will return to the venue to perform a special show celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Fab Four’s ground-breaking ‘White Album’ as well as classic Beatles hits.
Lytham Festival Director Peter Taylor said: “We had so many requests to bring both Collabro and The Mersey Beatles back to Lytham Festival following both of their sensational performances last year, so we just had to do it.
“Collabro show time and time again why they deserve the title of the world’s most successful musical theatre group. They continue to wow audiences wherever they perform, and we’re delighted their fans will be able to enjoy their return to Lytham Festival this year.
“To follow Collabro’s performance with the brilliant band that is The Mersey Beatles is further proof of the diversity that Lytham Festival offers audiences. They perfectly capture the spirit and sound of The Beatles and this new show – which has a special section dedicated to The White Album – will be a must see for Beatles fans.
“There will be a huge demand for tickets for both these shows so I would advise fans of musical theatre and The Beatles to act quickly to avoid being disappointed.”
The past year has been huge for Collabro. They enjoyed a sell-out autumn tour following a summer tour with Cliff Richard. Most recently, they have just returned from a two-week sell-out tour of Asia wowing audiences in Japan, the Philippines and Taiwan.
Since winning Britain’s Got Talent in 2014, Jamie Lambert, Michael Auger, Matt Pagan and Thomas Redgrave have performed across the globe to standing ovations, from the US, Asia and Canada and released their third studio album ‘HOME’ which reached the Top 10.
Collabro’s Lytham Festival show will be followed by the return of The Mersey Beatles.
Fifty years after the release of the Fab Four’s ground-breaking 1968 album ‘The Beatles’ – known the world over as ‘The White Album’ – the world’s favourite Liverpool-born Beatles tribute band are bringing a two-hour live show to the Pavilion Stage.
This stunning two-part show will see the band – who this year are touring America, Europe and the Far East – perform seminal tracks and hits from the White Album including such legendary tracks as Revolution, Helter Skelter, Back In The U.S.S.R, Yer Blues and While My Guitar Gently Weeps.
And they will also play a sensational set of Beatles classics which will take the audience on a journey through the Fab Four’s legendary hit-packed back catalogue – from the songs of Beatlemania to Sgt Pepper and Abbey Road.
Collabro and The Mersey Beatles join a mega line-up for Lytham Festival 2018 which includes headline performances over five nights in the Lytham Green Main Arena from pop superstars Steps, DJ Pete Tong with the Heritage Orchestra conducted by Jules Buckley, award-winning musician George Ezra and singer-songwriter Emeli Sandé, legendary musician Nile Rodgers and his band CHIC and the world’s most successful classical crossover group Il Divo.
