We have all missed our fix of musical theatre over the last 18months, so to cram our favourite songs into one incredible evening, a night out with THE BARRICADE BOYS is definitely the way to go.
Our most exciting musical theatre group are heading back on the road in 2022, with their new Bring Him Home Tour.
Starring past performers from the global theatrical sensation that is Les Misérables, The Barricade Boys have entertained fans around the world since they formed in 2015 and now they are visiting towns and cities across England and Wales.
The Bring Him Home Tour will feature music from some of the best-loved shows from the West End and Broadway stage, including Phantom Of The Opera, Miss Saigon, Jersey Boys and, of course, Les Misérables, as well as hits from some of pop and rock music’s all-time greats including Queen, Elton John, The Beatles, Ed Sheeran and Adele.
The Barricade Boys are Craig Mather, Kieran Brown, Scott Garnham and Simon Schofield – who together wowed crowds with their fifth consecutive appearance at the annual celebration of London theatre West End Live earlier this month. A member of our team was there for the performance and reports they were definitely top of the tree that day – she even preferred them to Magic Mike who performed the same day!!!
In fact, here’s that very performance so you can judge for yourself just how good the boys are……
Simon and Scott established The Barricade Boys with the aim of creating a night at the musicals like no other. They blend powerhouse vocal harmonies and slick dance routines with a journey through the decades of musical theatre, bound together by the friendship and affection they have for each other, sharing anecdotes from the shows they have starred in.
Announcing the tour, Scott told us…..
“The Barricade Boys all have one thing in common – our shared history of performing in the West End, International tour and movie versions of Les Misérables, which is the world’s greatest musical without a doubt. Through that connection, we have developed great friendships which make our shows a very special event for theatregoers.”
Other credits listed by The Barricade Boys include the West End hits Mamma Mia, Wicked, Billy Elliot, The Book Of Mormon, The Sound Of Music and Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
Barricade Boy Simon continued……
“While our background is in musical theatre, we also love to perform hits from the greatest artists of our time – and we can’t wait to share our take on tracks from music legends such as The Rolling Stones, Tom Jones, The Beatles and Elton John.”
The Bring Him Home Tour follows The Barricade Boys’ lockdown hit, where they drew together famous faces from the West End and Broadway – including Alfie Boe, Ramin Karimloo and John Owen Jones, to release a special new version of the iconic Les Mis’ track Bring Him Home.
Ben Hatton is the Director of Theatre Touring for promoters Cuffe and Taylor, he told us…..
“A night with The Barricade Boys is a must-see for any fans of musical theatre. They are an exceptionally talented group who were all born to entertain and we’re delighted to present their latest UK tour.”
We get two opportunities to see THE BARRICADE BOYS next year, here in South Wales. The UK tour kicks off at the home of many of the shows they’ll be performing songs from – the Wales Millennium Centre. They arrive on Sunday 1st May. And at the end of the tour you can catch them at Castell Roc at Chepstow Castle on Sunday 21st August. Tickets are available for all dates right now, and you can get them HERE.
