SIX in Concert at twelve open air sites across the UK

THE international hit SIX has announced that it will be the first West End musical to perform again after Lockdown.

SIX will join the Utilita Live From The Drive-In summer shows with eight shows a week at 12 open air sites across the UK – in London, Birmingham, Bolton, Bristol, Cheltenham, Edinburgh, Leeds, Lincoln, Liverpool, Milton Keynes, Newmarket and Teesside.

Three hundred vehicles can attend each show with a maximum of seven people allowed in each car.

Fans will be able to picnic and party as they watch the festival-style full length show live from their own dedicated area next to their vehicle.

Tickets will go on sale at 8am on Friday, July 3, 2020 at www.livenation.co.uk/.

Designed to comply with all official guidelines, Utilita Live From The Drive-In will deliver the UK’s premier drive-in experience, boasting concert quality sound from a live stage with a full state of the art sound system, lighting rig and high definition LED screens, creating an arena or stadium concert feel in a safe Drive-In setting adhering to the Government’s current social distancing rules to protect fans, artists, crews and staff at all times.

Producer Kenny Wax said: “We are delighted that SIX will spearhead the reopening of one of London and the UK’s most popular shows. With the industry in crisis, theatres struggling and some even going out of business, this drive-in event offers hope for the future and equally importantly, jobs for about 50 of our company including cast, musicians, stage managers, technicians and freelancers. We are using both our West End and UK touring casts, rehearsing and touring them in a bubble and having them work in teams of six (fortunate for us) as per the government guidance.”

Thousands of SIX fans were left bitterly disappointed when sold out runs at the Arts Theatre in London as well as up and down the country on the UK Tour were cancelled. All cancelled UK touring dates have been moved to 2021.

From Tudor Queens to Pop Princesses, the six wives of Henry VIII take to the mic in SIX to tell their tales, remixing 500 years of historical heartbreak into a 75-minute celebration of 21st century girl power.

Written by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, and directed by Lucy Moss and Jamie Armitage, SIX has choreography by Carrie-Anne Ingrouille, set design by Emma Bailey, costume design by Gabriella Slade, lighting design by Tim Deiling, sound design by Paul Gatehouse, musical orchestration by Tom Curran, musical supervision by Joe Beighton and musical direction by Katy Richardson.
