The UK’s longest running rock and roll show, That’ll Be The Day, celebrates its 35th
anniversary with an incredible national tour… and it’s coming to a theatre near you!
From humble beginnings 35 years ago touring the UK in a transit van, the show has gone from strength to strength and is this year celebrating its huge 35th Anniversary. That’ll Be The Day usually performs around 200 shows a year in major venues including 5 sell out shows at the London Palladium, with last year being the longest time away since the show began. The anniversary tour kicked off by returning to the last venue they played in 2020, which was of course Weston-Super-Mare, and the cast and crew can’t wait to return on the 2nd leg of their Anniversary Tour performing again at The Playhouse for the show’s extremely loyal fan base.
The legendary show has already performed to over five million people over the last three and a half decades, including several super fans that have seen the show over 500 times and three people that have seen the show an incredible 1,000 times!
Unashamedly nostalgic and relentlessly entertaining, That’ll Be The Day takes its audience on a rollercoaster ride through the ‘golden’ age of Rock and Roll and Pop, mixing brilliant vocals and superb musicianship with impersonations and hilarious comedy routines. The 35th anniversary show will be infused with the same unique formula that fans have come to know and love, promising some old favourites and of course brand new material complete with some very special surprises – a guaranteed night of nostalgia and laughs!
Director, producer and performer Trevor Payne says: “It’s incredible to think that this will be our 35th year on the road. The show has developed right along with our audiences and we never take for granted the fact that they expect the best from us. We always work hard to deliver the highest possible production with great attention to detail to make sure our audiences have a great night out. We completely change the content of the regular show and the Christmas show every year to keep it fresh as we know our audiences come back year after year.”
“It’s all down to the commitment of all involved – the crew, cast and creatives and all of the people behind the scenes – it’s a real team effort,” adds Trevor.
Trevor has written a book about his time with That’ll Be The Day, filled with some extraordinary stories from 35 years on the road. The book, which will be released this year, is a must read for any fans of the show wanting to know more about Trevor’s time on and off the prestigious That’ll Be The Day stage.
Over the years That’ll Be The Day has collected over a million pounds for many charities including Childline and Help for Heroes. The ‘Make a Wish’ foundation is the latest charity to benefit from the show’s bucket collections by over £350,000.
