Collabro come to New Theatre Oxford
Collabro are the world’s most successful musical theatre group.
They met in 2014 above a pub in London for their first rehearsal and only a month later went on to rouse the whole of the Hammersmith Apollo into a standing ovation during their first ever public performance of Stars in their first audition for Britain’s Got Talent.
Having won their semi-final heat with over 63% of the votes, they then won the overall competition with one of the biggest majorities ever and subsequently signed to Simon Cowell’s label Syco, becoming label mates with the likes of One Direction, Little Mix, Susan Boyle and Il Divo.
In the two years since the competition, Collabro have released a number one debut album, Stars, and their follow up album, Act Two, peaked at number two in the charts in the summer of 2015. They have performed at the Royal Variety Performance, twice on Britain’s Got Talent including the ten-year grand final compilation of past contestants, and have become enormously successful internationally. Notably, they have performed for over 30 million people in Japan on Music Station on two separate occasions, completing a tour and winning a gold disc award for top international artist alongside Sam Smith and Meghan Trainor. They have also completed two tours of America alongside with a major record deal stateside.
Collabro, now made up of Jamie Lambert, Michael Auger, Matt Pagan and Thomas Redgrave, have already performed to 7 million people on Soccer Aid 2016 to critical appraise and excellent reviews as a four piece. Excited for the future the band are looking forward to releasing their third album ‘HOME’ in early 2017 and will be embarking on tours of Canada, Japan and America before their heading back to the UK for a major tour next winter.
Tickets for Collabro’s Home UK Tour go on sale 10am Friday 18th November and available here.
