Winners of TV’s ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ To Star On February 26
Collabro, the world’s most successful musical theatre group, will perform for the first time in the Philippines when the four-piece make their debut at Resorts World Manila on February 26, 2018.
The British act, comprising singers Jamie Lambert, Michael Auger, Matt Pagan and Tom Redgrave, won TV’s ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ in 2014 before releasing their debut album Stars, which went to No.1 in the UK and registered double gold in sales. Since then they have released two more studio albums and toured the globe winning millions of fans in the process.
The boys – currently in the middle of a 29-date UK Tour – will showcase their latest album Home when they swap the West End stage for the Newport Performing Arts Theater, Resorts World in a show produced and promoted by Spicy Lemon. News of Collabro’s first live show in the Philippines comes just weeks after the group shared the stage with international superstar Lea Salonga at the Lytham Festival in the UK.
“We’re all very excited about playing in the Philippines for the very first time,” said a band spokesperson. “We’re currently touring the UK right now but will be over to Asia in the New Year with shows in Japan before we head over to see our fans in Manila. We’ll be performing songs from all three of our albums as well as some other few surprises.”
Tickets for the show at Resorts World go on sale soon with full details to be announced by Spicy Lemon, organizers of Bamboo’s recent tour of the UK, Ireland and the Middle East as well as Kamikazee’s hugely-popular “Huling Sayaw” concert at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Manila.
Collabro is a four-piece musical theatre super-group – winners of Britain’s Got Talent in 2014 – whose debut album ‘Stars’ went to No.1 in the UK and subsequently achieved double gold sales.
Their second album ‘Act 2’ was released in June 2015 on Syco, entering at No. 2 in the UK Official Charts and they’ve performed at The Royal Variety Show alongside Dame Shirley Bassey, One Direction and Alfie Boe.
Loved in the UK, Collabro are now winning fans across the world including the US, Canada and Japan. In 2016 they completed their hugely triumphant ‘Act 2’ tour of the UK, selling out venues across the country, including the Royal Albert Hall.
Their third album ‘Home’ – released in early 2017 under their own record label – reached Number 7 in the UK album charts and preceded a sell-out tour with Sir Cliff Richard and the release of their debut single ‘Lighthouse’ in collaboration with Save the Children reaching Number 1 in the iTunes Classical singles chart.
Collabro’s continued success and positive critical response in the live performance and recording markets further affirms them as the leading Musical Theatre group in the world today and they are currently on their third UK tour performing at 30 venues across the country, including the London Palladium. In 2018 they will tour in North America, Japan, the Philippines and give their first performances in Australia.
They have performed twice at the Royal Variety Performance, on Britain’s Got Talent (most recently at the ten-year Grand Final compilation of past contestants) and have become enormously successful internationally. Notably, they have performed for over 30 million people in Japan on Music Station on two separate occasions, completing a tour there and winning a Gold Disc award for top international artist alongside Sam Smith and Meghan Trainor. They have also completed two US tours and signed a major US record deal.
They performed to 7 million people on ITV’s Soccer Aid 2016 to critical appraise, garnering excellent reviews from the press and have been confirmed on the bill of the inaugural ‘Stages’ Cruise in 2018. For more info: www.collabroglobal.com
