Yorkshire, UK – October 23, 2023
Get ready to sing your heart out, Yorkshire! Gareth Malone, the renowned choirmaster and presenter, is set to bring his interactive musical extravaganza, Sing-Along-A-Gareth-Two, to venues across the region this autumn. Audiences in York, Leeds, and Sheffield are in for a treat as Malone encourages ticket holders to join in the musical festivities at the Grand Opera House in York on November 5, City Varieties in Leeds on November 6, and Sheffield City Hall on November 19.
The tour aims to tackle the ongoing debate about audience behavior at concerts and theatrical performances. In a time when musicals are curbing unruly antics and gig etiquette pointers are being shared, Gareth Malone offers a refreshing solution. Sing-Along-A-Gareth-Two is not just a show; it’s an experience where the audience becomes an integral part of the performance.
Unlike traditional theatre experiences, Malone’s show is all about the sing-along. “It’s about the sing-along, and generally, people come with their choirs or they aspire to be in a choir, and they want to do some singing, and that’s fine,” Malone explains. The event promises an engaging and interactive evening where the audience is encouraged to belt out the lyrics alongside Malone, creating a joyous and unifying atmosphere.
Malone, known for his work as the choirmaster of the Military Wives and his popular television shows like ‘The Choir,’ has a deep passion for bringing people together through music. He believes that singing has the power to unite people and create a sense of celebration, especially after the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The show will feature Malone playing guitar and bass on stage, accompanied by fellow musicians and choirs selected from local areas. Additionally, Malone plans to incorporate artificial intelligence (AI) into the show, experimenting with generating song lyrics based on local towns using AI technology.
“It might be funny and quite interesting, and quite sort of timely,” Malone says about the AI experiment. “Lots of people are worried about AI. We’re going to give it a go.”
For those attending the show, the general song list will be available in advance, allowing them to prepare and fully immerse themselves in the sing-along experience. From classics like Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5” to Queen’s “We Are The Champions,” the audience can anticipate an evening filled with familiar tunes and infectious energy.
Malone’s infectious enthusiasm for music and community shines through in his performances. “When you’ve got a great song and a lot of people singing it, it’s quite thrilling. It’s like a bit of a celebration,” he shares.
Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of a musical celebration like no other. Grab your tickets now for Sing-Along-A-Gareth-Two and get ready to sing your heart out alongside Gareth Malone and fellow music enthusiasts. Let the music bring us together and fill the air with harmony and joy.
