Alexander Armstrong, fresh from his starring role in ITV’s Your Face Looks Familiar, celebrates his love of music and great songs in this fantastic new stage show.
Armstrong’s gloriously powerful baritone, along with his exceptionally versatile band, breathe new life into a wonderfully diverse range of songs from Louis Jordan’s Is You Is Or Is You Ain’t My Baby, to Spandau Ballet’s True and Cyndi Lauper’s Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.
Alexander said “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 “
Alexander’s band consists of his MD Harry the Piano, virtuoso wind player Simon Bates, Van Morrison’s drummer Jeff Lardner and Jools Holland’s bassist 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, Epic Win, is a frequent host of Have I Got News For You and most recently as a competitor on ITV’s new celebrity singing show Your Face Sounds Familiar.
