Elaine Paige will be touring the UK in October 2017

Stage legend Elaine Paige will be touring the UK in October.

Elaine Paige will be playing a mixture of her own material and renditions of favourite tracks by contemporary artists. She last toured the UK towards the end of 2016, celebrating rave reviews.

“I’m so excited about taking this concert to more venues across the UK,” she announced. “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.”

To date, Elaine Paige has 22 solo albums under her belt, as well as being featured on 7 cast recordings. Her biggest musical numbers include Memory from the musical Cats, and I Know Him So Well from Chess.
