Kerry Ellis brings tour to London
Date Posted: 02/10/14
Popular demand has seen West End stalwart open up a date in her tour in central London, with Cadogan Hall due to host the singing starlet's concert series on October 26th.
The performance will take place the day after she finishes her second stint in the award-winning musical Wicked, widely regarded as the production that made her name when she joined the original cast back in 2006.
Her latest concert tour, however, features a rather eclectic song list that includes musical favourites from My Fair Lady, Oliver!, Andrew Lloyd Webber's Song and Dance, Dirty Dancing and other West End hits.
But Ellis proves her range extends far beyond the stage with a number of unexpected inclusions, such as Let It Go from Disney's hit animated film Frozen and a Katy Perry medley.
The setlist showcases both her soaring vocals in dramatic numbers such as the opening Bond medley, and tactile and warm tones in numbers such as As Long As He Needs Me from Oliver!
Other songs to expect include Edge of Glory, I Dreamed a Dream, Take That Look Off Your Face, As Long as You’re Mine, I Could Have Danced All Night and even Pharrell Williams’ hit Happy.
Reviewers have already responded positively to the first few shows of the tour, which began in Leicester, particularly commenting on Ellis's rapport with the audience - many of whom will have funded her latest self-titled album Kerry Ellis through the crowdfunding campaign.
If you're a fan of the UK's theatre scene, you'll undoubtedly have heard of Ms Ellis already, since she made her name performing in a variety of musicals on both the West End and on Broadway before becoming a solo artist with the help of Queen guitarist Dr Brian May. This evening of wonderful music will please fanatics both old and young.
