Fresh from recent appearances on the Graham Norton Show, Strictly Come Dancing & The One Show, British harmony trio BLAKE present a brand new tour featuring the finest songs from stage and screen, with projections & lighting that bring the cinematic magic to life. Linked together with the boys’ famous improvised banter, the show features music from Hanz Zimmer, Ennio Morricone, Leonard Bernstein, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Leonard Cohen, The Beach Boys & many more. This is the ultimate celebration of movies and musicals, all sung in thrilling vocal harmony.
The tour follows TV performances alongside the sensational Dame Shirley Bassey, with whom they released a Christmas single last December. The single featured on their festive album ‘A Classic Christmas’ in aid of children’s charities Variety and Noah’s Ark Hospice.
BLAKE have an impressive CV of achievements including several No. 1s, multi-platinum selling albums and over 150 TV appearances, as well as having won a Brit Award for Album of the Year. Famous fans include Keira Knightley, Ewan McGregor, Kevin Spacey and Will Smith. The trio tour constantly and take part in a vast amount of charity work, from performing for the Queen and Prince Harry at the Festival of Remembrance and the launch of the Walking With The Wounded South Pole Challenge, to working with the ‘Sing to Beat Breast Cancer’ Choir. Other charities they have supported include Help For Heroes, The British Legion and MIND. They have fans worldwide, which has sent them on tours to the Philippines, South Korea, Barbados, Russia, and even at the White House in the US.
Blake are offering local choirs the chance to perform with them as part of the show. The members of Blake all found their love of music at a young age and sang with various groups and choirs throughout their childhood. Their passion for music continues to grow and they wanted to share this with the communities they would be visiting on their tour. “We thought about how we could involve school choirs and local community choirs in our live shows, and that getting some of the choirs up on stage with us would be a great experience for both them and us” – Oliver Baines, Tenor.
