Now before we go any further we need to say that Luke’s gig in Cardiff is sold out. There may be returns and it’s certainly worth checking with the box office (see below) for this not to miss show. But Luke is Welsh and he is playing live here, and his new album is pretty fantastic, so why wouldn’t we stick him in our magazine.
We can though tell you we’ve checked and there are some tickets left for Luke’s other dates if you don’t mind the journey. They are…….
- Sunday April 26th – Symphony Hall – Birmingham
- Tuesday April 28th – The London Palladium
- Thursday April 30th – Venue Cymru Theatre – Llandudno
These will be snapped up soon but there are seats right now, and pretty good ones too. If you don’t mind the trip, you can get your tickets here. LUKE.
So, this world renowned star of stage and screen Luke Evans is playing some live shows to support his debut album ‘At Last’. It brings together an eclectic collection of modern and classic songs, personally curated by Evans to highlight and complement his unique delivery and vocal style.
Luke told us…….
‘As some people know, it’s been my dream throughout my life to record and release an album. And now that the response to my debut album ‘At Last’ has been so brilliant, I’m finally getting a chance to fulfil another dream of mine, to go on tour and perform these songs to my fans. I can promise that I will be delivering an entertaining show for everyone, with a few surprises in store.’
Luke will be performing tracks from his album, including modern classics as U2’s ‘With Or Without You’, Pat Benatar’s 80’s power ballad ‘Love Is A Battlefield’ and Cher’s ‘If I Could Turn Back Time’, along with the ‘Bring Him Home’ from Les Mis, Etta James’ Jazz standard ‘At Last’, and ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ by Roberta Flack.
Just in case you’ve been living in a castle in Loir-Et-Cher in France with Cogsworth, Mrs Potts, Chip and Lumière, then let us tell you all about Luke. Are you sitting comfortably children, then we’ll begin – bit to Disney do you think?
Luke is a Welsh actor and singer, he’s called Evans for goodness sake. He began his career on the stage, performing in many of London’s West End productions such as Rent, Miss Saigon, and Piaf before making his film breakthrough in the Clash of the Titans 2010 remake. Following his debut, he then went on to star in a load more action movies, such as Immortals, The Raven, and The Three Musketeers.
Of course he has been in so much since then. The Fast and The Furious. The Hobbit, Dracula Untold and of course he was Gaston in Disney’s live-action re-boot of Beauty and the Beast,
Before we get back to Luke’s album I just want to direct you to an absolutely fantastic film he starred in a few years ago. He portrayed American psychologist William Moulton Marston who was the creator of Wonder Woman The biographical drama Professor Marston and the Wonder Women is definitely worth a watch if you get the chance.
Luke finally got to fulfil that lifelong dream at the end of last year when her released his album AT LAST. If you want to have a listen, there’s a small sample below. Trust us, it’s really good and you’ll definitely want to hear more.

As we said his concert at St David’s Hall on Wednesday 29th April is SOLD OUT.

It’s free to be added to the list but there will be a £2.50 administration fee per ticket if successful in securing the tickets.
Failing that, get yourself off to one of his other shows, you will have an amazing night.
