PRESS RELEASE

Elaine Paige in Concert The Queen's Hall Edinburgh Saturday October 28th 2017

Singer Elaine Paige has announced a series of concerts from October 2017, which will see her perform songs from her illustrious career alongside an array of her favourite tracks by contemporary songwriters.  This follows on from the huge successes of Elaine’s last series of concerts at the end of 2016, which had audiences and critics raving.

Elaine said: "I'm so excited about taking this concert to more venues across the UK, we had such a great time last year.   It allows me to do something completely different, a brand new show celebrating songwriters I love such as Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman, Jim Webb, Burt Bacharach, Lennon & McCartney, Tim Rice & Andrew Lloyd Webber ... the list goes on… as well as many of my hits.  This music has been the soundtrack to all our lives, not just mine.  And it’s the ideal opportunity to perform in an intimate way.”

"an exceptional show that represents both a carefully formulated evening’s entertainment and a genuine labour of love” (musicaltheatrereview.com)
"a vocally remarkable and almost effortless performance … had the audience rising to their feet in rapturous applause” (redbrick.me)
"With her biggest hit Memory from Cats and With One Look from Sunset Boulevard as part of the set list, it’s a moment you don’t want to miss.” (ManchestersFinest)

Elaine has performed live in concert all over the world and as a recording artist has worked with legendary producers such as Tony Visconti, Dennis Lambert, Peter Matz, & Phil Ramone amongst others and has released 22 solo albums (4 multi-Platinum and 9 Gold,) been featured on 7 cast recordings and has had major worldwide hits with songs such as Memory (Cats) and I Know Him So Well (Chess.)

As a musical theatre performer Elaine has made a major contribution to the modern musical.  She has starred in more smash hit West End & Broadway musicals than anyone else of her generation and continues to present the hugely successful weekly BBC Radio 2 show Elaine Paige on Sunday, which is devoted to musical theatre and film music, and continues to delight audiences of over 2.5 million listeners each week with its mix of music, news and interviews. 

"A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to watch the lady who has quite rightly been given the epithet 'First Lady Of Musical Theatre' in an intimate, informal concert of epic proportion! A thousand times ‘bravo!” North West End

"The night as a whole was sensational, and it was an honour to witness musical theatre royalty doing what she does best.” Grapevine
