From ABBA and Queen to Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston, Aberdeen venues will reopen with a fantastic line-up of tribute shows.
While most touring West End productions – including Footloose, The Book of Mormon, Mamma Mia and Singin’ in the Rain – were rescheduled for 2022, music fans will still be able to enjoy some light-hearted live entertainment later this year.
MJ The Legacy – Starring CJ, the world-class tribute production to the “King of Pop”, will be the first tribute show taking to Tivoli Theatre stage. Taking place on August 29, the Michael Jackson tribute show promises to bring immersive theatrical experience to the north-east and capture the “electrifying energy” of the singer’s past live performances.
Lynn Sangster, The Tivoli Theatre’s general manager, said: “After being closed for 17 months, we are absolutely thrilled to announce that our curtain will rise again on August 29, with MJ Legacy, a tribute to the ‘King of Pop’ and on his birthday.
“We’ve got a wide variety of tribute shows. A Vision of Elvis who audiences absolutely love has been here a number of times. We’ve also got Hotel California – this may be their third or fourth time here. Just Beatles, UK Pink Floyd Experience – they’re fantastic bands who have a great following in Aberdeen now.
“Islands In the Stream is a new show for us – it’s a very popular show so we’re delighted to welcome them to The Tivoli.”
