‘Britain’s Got Talent’ Stars Set for ABS-CBN Showcase
Manila (Philippines): Fresh from starring in ‘Britain’s Got Talent – The Big Celebration’ in Liverpool, England at the weekend, musical theatre group Collabro have jetted in for an Asian Tour that will see them perform for the first time here in the Philippines at Resorts World Manila on February 26.
The hugely-popular four-piece act comprising singers Jamie Lambert, Michael Auger, Matt Pagan and Thomas Redgrave will launch their Asian shows with two concerts in Japan on February 18 and 20 before arriving in the Philippines’ capital for the first time.
As well as performing for their army of “Collaborators” in Manila, the four British singers are lined up to make several TV appearances on popular ABS-CBN productions ‘ASAP‘, ‘Showtime‘ and ‘Umagang Kay Ganda‘ to showcase the vocals, style and charisma that have helped win millions of fans around the world.
Four years ago this week, the boys stepped in front of TV’s ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judges Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon for an audition that blew away the judges and resulted in a standing ovation from the entire theatre.
Today that audition of the song “Stars” from “Les Miserables” is as popular as ever with over 40 million views on YouTube alone. Legendary TV and music mogul Cowell described it as: “… an absolutely brilliant audition – brilliant” and the British public agreed to vote Collabro as the show’s winning act of 2014.
“We are all looking forward to working with Collabro on making their first ever show in the Philippines a great success,” said a spokesman for event producers and promoters Spicy Lemon.
“As well as songs from all three of their albums – including the show-stopping “Stars” – the boys will dip into the catalogue of some of the biggest musical theatre shows of all time and no doubt have a few other surprises for their Manila fans.”
Remaining tickets for the show at the Newport Performing Arts Theater, Resorts World are on sale online from www.platinumlist.net or from the Box Office at Resorts World. For more information, contact Spicy Lemon on +63 995 9276776.
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 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.
