Idina Menzel announces UK visit
Date Posted: 30/11/14
Broadway and popular songstress Idina Menzel has confirmed that she will visit the UK for her international tour next year, with a performance slated for Wembley Arena on June 27th.
The actress, who has become a household name over the past year thanks to the success of Disney hit Frozen in which she played the misunderstood ice queen Elsa, confirmed the news via social media and her website yesterday (December 2nd).
"Hey UK and Ireland, I’m coming your way! Bringing my tour over in June. Can’t wait to be back," she said on her Facebook.
The dates have been added to Menzel's already extensive North American tour, which is set to take her from Richmond to Los Angeles over a three month period.
As well as performing at one of the hottest venues in the capital, Menzel has announced concerts in a number of other locations across the UK and Ireland, with nights also planned in Dublin (June 20th), Birmingham (June 22nd), Manchester (June 23rd), Glasgow (June 24th) and Bournemouth (June 26th).
Among the Broadway and West End veteran's previous credits, perhaps most prominent is the 2003 smash-hit Wicked, in which she originated the lead role of misunderstood green witch Elphaba before bringing it to the West End in 2006 for a limited three-month stint.
Other credits in Aida and Rent saw her popularity grow, but it wasn't until the phenomenal success of Frozen broke through that Menzel saw her popularity spiral skywards. She lent her vocals to the popular song Let It Go, which was nominated for and received an Academy Award.
Menzel is currently starring on Broadway in the new Broadway production If/Then, an original piece of musical theatre that explores the impact one simple decision might have on a woman's life.
