Less than a year after winning Britain’s Got Talent, Collabro have today announced dates for their second nationwide tour. The announcement of their 2016 ‘Act Two’ tour tops off an astounding year for the band which has seen them go truly global. The band will tour the length and breadth of the country playing venues including London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall.
This announcement coincides with the release of their second album ‘Act Two’ on 1st June which comes less than a year after their debut album ‘Stars’ stormed to the top of the charts. The tour will once again showcase their incredible vocal talent which wowed the judges and audience alike to see them crowned Britain’s Got Talent winners in 2014. Demand for the band since the show has led to appearances all across Europe and Asia, while they have recently signed to Sony Masterworks in the USA, releasing their first US album.
'Act Two’ sees the band expand their musical horizons, recording some of the greatest songs that have influenced them as a band. The record includes some surprising re-interpretations of recent pop music’s finest moments such as Kodaline’s smash ‘All I Want,’ Christina Perri’s ‘A Thousand Years’ and ‘I Won’t Give Up’ by Jason Mraz. There’s also a touching rendition of The Rembrandts’ world-famous ‘I’ll Be There For You,’ which was debuted on the boys’ tour at the start of this year.
From the world of film and musical theatre the boys take on the likes of ‘Music Of The Night’ (which won a Facebook fans’ poll of songs for the band to perform), 'I Dreamed A Dream’ from Les Miserables and ‘The Circle of Life’ from ‘The Lion King.’
Michael Auger, Richard Hadfield, Jamie Lambert, Matt Pagan and Thomas Redgrave only became Collabro at the start of 2014 and it’s been a steady stream of incredible moments since then. Following their runaway Britain’s Got Talent victory last summer, Collabro have already released a No.1 Gold certified album and special edition follow up, performed at the Royal Variety Show for Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, and written and released ‘Our Story’, their first band memoir.
