The London Gay Men’s Chorus, the UK’s largest and best-known gay choir, have announced the initial round of dates for their first ever tour of the UK and Ireland.
The tour kicks off on 4th May at The Stables in Wavendon, near Milton Keynes, the venue owned by Dame Cleo Laine and John Dankworth. It moves to the National Concert Hall in Dublin on Sunday 16th June in a joint concert with Dublin choir Gloria, then The Waterfront Studio in Belfast on Monday 17th June, and The Queen Elizabeth Hall on London’s south bank on July 18th. Further dates in cities including Manchester and Brighton will be announced over the coming weeks.
The show, entitled ‘Tying The Knot’ is an evening of musical romance and love, from flirting and first love, to lifelong commitment or heartbreak. Stephen Sondheim, Kurt Weil and Tom Lehrer are among those putting their spin on the trials and tribulations of the heart, with numbers including ‘Company’, ‘Sing Me Not a Ballad’ and ‘The Masochism Tango’.

Martin Brophy, Chairman of The London Gay Men’s Chorus is looking forward to the tour.

“Our first UK & Ireland tour is an exciting step for us. Having toured American and Australia, a tour closer to home is long overdue! As always audiences can expect a great evening of top-notch music and entertainment. Anyone who has seen the London Gay Men’s Chorus in concert before will know that we have our own unique style and sound, and always keep a few surprises up our sleeve!”

With over one hundred singers on stage, and a show that includes full choir choreography, small ensemble numbers and a lot of comedy, the London Gay Men’s Chorus have established themselves as one of the most entertaining choirs in the country. All concerts are sign-language interpreted for the hearing-impaired.

Since their formation in 1991, The London Gay Men’s Chorus have performed across the world including The Sydney Opera House, The Royal Albert Hall, Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, the opening ceremony of The Millennium Dome and The Royal Festival Hall. They have sung with Boy George, Elton John, Cleo Laine, Willard White and Jools Holland among others, and on the hit single ‘Jerusalem’ with Fat Les 2000.
