TOMMY STEELE RETURNS TO LONDON'S COLISEUM 60 YEARS AFTER STARRING IN RODGERS AND HAMMERSTEIN'S CINDERELLA

As his legion of fans already know, Tommy Steele - Britain's first Rock and Roll Star - made his legitimate debut in 1958 starring in Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella, which enjoyed a sold out run at London's Coliseum Theatre. What they probably don't know is that the inspiration for Tommy's extraordinary career was an American band leader whose music Tommy had worshipped from the moment he first heard it in his early teens.

And so, 60 years on, TOMMY STEELE returns to THE LONDON COLISEUM to salute his idol GLENN MILLER, in a new musical celebration...

Featuring the authentic sounds of In the Mood, Moonlight Serenade, Little Brown Jug, Pennsylvania 6-5000, Tuxedo Junction, Chattanooga Choo Choo, and many more...

...the life, fame and untimely death of the big band leader whose music defined an era is celebrated in THE GLENN MILLER SHOW.

TOMMY STEELE RETURNS TO LONDON WITH HIS BIG BAND SALUTE TO GLENN MILLER (26 APRIL 2018)

Sixty years after Tommy Steele made his theatre debut in 1958 starring in Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella at the London Coliseum, he will return there to salute his idol Glenn Miller in a new musical celebration, running for seven weeks from 6 July to August 2018.

The Glenn Miller Show features the journey the legendary big band leader took to find his unique sound, and his subsequent fame and untimely death. With the authentic sounds of 'In the Mood', 'Moonlight Serenade', 'Little Brown Jug', 'Pennsylvania 6-5000', 'Tuxedo Junction', 'Chattanooga Choo Choo', and many more era-defining favourites, the show will be produced by Bill Kenwright with choreography by Olivier Award winner Bill Deamer and direction by Bob Tomson and Kenwright.

Steele said: "I am and always will be one of Glenn Miller's biggest fans. That sound, that wonderful sound, and his search for it, is one of the most inspiring stories I know. So, I'm returning to the Coliseum to say two thank you's!"

Glenn Miller was the best-selling recording artist in the world from 1939 to 1943, leading one of the best-known big bands. In those four years he scored 23 No. 1 hits - more than Elvis Presley and The Beatles.

Tommy Steele landed his first UK No.1 with 'Singing the Blues' in January 1957, reaching the top spot before Elvis, the same year he filmed the movie The Tommy Steele Story. His career has included more than 20 hit singles, 12 musical movies - including Finian's Rainbow, The Happiest Millionaire, and of course Half a Sixpence - and several stage musicals such as Half a Sixpence, Hans Andersen and Singin' in the Rain. He starred in the musical Scrooge, which enjoyed two successful runs at the London Palladium, and made him the theatre's all-time record breaking performer, having headlined more performances than any other star in its history.
