Eddi Reader - 40 Years Live Tour

"Just perfect Eddi Reader gets every song just right" - The Sunday Times

"Flawless, not just perfect, world class" - R2 Magazine

"Timeless and universal" - The Scotsman

One of my favourite singers of all time Jools Holland

Eddi Reader is perhaps Scotland's greatest living female voice. In 2020, she celebrates her 40th year on stage with the '40 Years Live' concert tour.

From her earliest years playing the folk clubs of western Scotland and learning how to street sing across Europe (like her hero Edith Piaf) Eddi's path soon lead her to a professional career in music as a backing singer for the Eurythmics and Gang of Four. Her band Fairground Attraction had huge international success and number one hits with 'Perfect' and debut album 'First of a Million Kisses' which stormed the charts in the mid 1980's.

Throughout her successful solo career, Eddi has released consistently great works, including highly acclaimed albums such as 'The Songs of Robert Burns' and last years 'Cavalier'. She has won Brit Awards, been awarded four honorary degrees, an MBE, sung to millions on some of the world's greatest concert and festival stages and collaborated with a host of stars across a myriad of genres including Folk, Jazz, Pop, World, Punk and even Classical work with various orchestras.

In 2019 Eddi guest starred with Jools Holland's Rhythm & Blues Orchestra for an extensive tour, released the 'Starlight' EP, played sold out headline shows, recorded a programme for BBC's Classic Scottish Album series about her Robert Burns recordings and appeared on BBC Television's Songs of Praise and as part of (her friend) Billy Connolly's Made In Scotland series.

2020's '40 Years Live' concerts promise to be something special, as with any Eddi Reader concert, the magic is being made in the moment, no two concerts ever the same.

They are also acclaimed for their elaborate live shows, which feature costumes, balloons, puppets, video projections, complex stage light configurations, giant hands, large amounts of confetti, and frontman Wayne Coyne’s signature man-sized plastic bubble, in which he traverses the audience.

BLOG are delighted to have been granted limited license to perform the adult cast version of this fantastic musical, and to have an amazing production team; directors Steve Stapley and Stuart Simons, MD Lesley Van Egmond and choreographer Stuart Simons.

While imprisoned, Joseph discovers his ability to interpret dreams and soon finds himself in front of the mighty Pharaoh. Joseph's solution to Egypt's famine elevates him to Pharaoh's right-hand man and reunites him with his family.

Combining country and western, ballads and calypso with Elvis-style rock, the show includes songs by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice that have become unforgettable pop and musical theatre standards, including Any Dream Will Do, Close Every Door To Me, Jacob and Sons, There's One More Angel In Heaven and Go, Go, Go Joseph.
