The West End cast celebrate smashing 100,000,000 streams

Theatre news

AS THE smash-hit West End musical SIX starts previews on Broadway, producers reveal that its catchy songs have been streamed 100,000,000 times on Spotify and Apple Music.

With 450,000 streams a day, SIX is now second only to Hamilton as the most streamed Musical Theatre album in the world.

Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, who wrote SIX while still students at Cambridge University, said:

“Our minds are completely blown at this incredible news! We are overjoyed that these nine songs – our little babies – have become so popular. With six productions of SIX playing simulatneously around the world, and Anne Boleyn’s song Don’t Lose Ur Head shared over half a billion times on Tik Tok – well, we’re just feeling kinda overwhelmed and incredibly grateful!

“We wrote these songs in our final year at college for a show at the Edinburgh Fringe, and our only thought at that time was to not embarrass ourselves or our friends. To be nominated for five Olivier Awards, be named “the musical of the decade” by WhatsOnStage and with us now being second only on Spotify and Apple Music streaming to Hamilton is beyond our wildest dreams. The sold out audiences at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre in New York where the latest production is previewing on literal B-R-O-A-D-W-A-Y!!! have been going just as nuts as those in the West End, across the UK and in Australia.

“The past 18 months has been the most unforgettable journey. We keep pinching ourselves but want to say 100,000,000 thank yous from the very bottom of our hearts to each and everyone of the fans out there who love SIX and its songs and are listening to them in such mind-blowing numbers every day! WE LOVE YOU!!! THANKS!!!”

SIX is currently booking at the Arts Theatre until Sunday, January 31, 2021.
