News: Blake Announce ‘In Harmony’ 2015 Tour2 min read
(UK) Brit-Award winners Blake are back and better than ever, with a refined new sound, new songs and their biggest UK tour yet. For complete tour dates and ticket information click here. Re-inspired by the enduring trio harmonies of The Three Tenors, The Bee Gees, The Lettermen & Boyz-II-Men, BLAKE’s latest concert show entitled ‘In Harmony’ sees them combining classic songs from their first four albums, with exclusive new songs from their critically acclaimed 5th album ‘In Harmony’ which was released earlier this year.
Musicals, pop and classical songs collide in the group’s most eclectic stage spectacular yet, accompanied by great musicians and impressive video projections. Returning from tours to the United States, Russia, Eastern Europe, South Africa & Asia, we expect their famous and hilarious rat-pack banter with the audience to feature some fascinating new stories.
Following on from previous years, Blake are once again searching the UK for talented local choirs to join them on stage as part of their ‘In Harmony’ tour. Over the last five years the group have been joined by more than 250 local choirs around the UK and overseas, in venues as far apart as Manchester, Moscow and Manila.
Choirs simply need to email their latest videos to the Blake website and the chosen groups will perform alongside Blake on five big ensemble songs, as well as present their own solo song to the audience. Performers in past guest choirs for Blake’s shows have recently been seen attaining places at prestigious London music colleges and even taking star roles in West End shows.
In the autumn of 2014, Blake released their 5th studio album entitled ‘In Harmony’. The album has received rave reviews from the likes of Women & Home who claim it is ‘brilliant’ and OK! magazine who insist ‘…after a listen there won’t be a dry eye in the house’.
The album celebrates a unique mix of music enjoyed in the bands live shows. This CD draws from the worlds of classical, musicals and pop music, linked together with stunning trio harmonies and lush acoustic backing. Three guest artists appear on this album, including Brit-Award nominee Camilla Kerslake, rising classical soprano Rebecca Newman and Filipino superstar Rachelle Ann Go, who is currently starring in the new production of Miss Saigon on the West-End in London.
