ALEXANDER ARMSTRONG CELEBRATES HIS LOVE OF MUSIC AND GREAT SONGS
IN THIS FANTASTIC NEW STAGE SHOW

The acclaimed comedian, actor and presenter, introduces us to the songs he loves, from jazz standards and rock classics to some lesser known pop delights. Armstrong's gloriously powerful baritone, along with his exceptionally versatile band, breathe new life into a wonderfully diverse range of songs from artists including Louis Jordan, Spandau Ballet, Cyndi Lauper, Rainbow and The Wombles!!

Armstrong says "I’ve never done anything like this before but I am so looking forward to heading out on the road with this extraordinary band of musicians, and to meeting the people who come along. I wonder if they'll be Pointless fans, comedy fans or - strange to say - music fans. Certainly there'll be something for everyone in the evening."

Armstrong’s exceptional band consists of joint Musical Directors: the incomparable Harry the Piano who also gives us an example of wonderfully witty piano improvisations based on live suggestions of songs and styles from the audience; and virtuoso woodwind player and sumptuous jazz soloist Simon Bates. The band is completed by Van Morrison’s dazzling drummer Jeff Lardner and Jools Holland’s amazing bass player Dave Swift.

The set will feature a superb collection of hand-picked songs in stunning new arrangements. Along with Armstrong's wonderful self-deprecating humour in between, you are promised a truly entertaining evening not to be missed.

Armstrong, best known for being one half of BAFTA Award winning comedy duo Armstrong and Miller, has also undertaken many straight acting roles including Love Life, Life Begins and most recently double Comedy Award winning Hunderby. He is also the host of popular quiz show Pointless as well as Alexander Armstrong's Big Ask and Epic Win and is a frequent host of Have I Got News For You. This summer he has introduced TV audiences to his vocal prowess as a competitor on ITV's new celebrity singing show Your Face Sounds Familiar.
