Beach Boys

February 17, 2016

Let the celebrations commence! It's hard to believe that these guys have been helping the world to rock and roll for five decades since releasing "Fun Fun Fun" but there you have it. This tour will also mark the official introduction of singer/guitarist Jeffrey Foskett, who has worked regularly with the group since 1981, as a permanent member of the Beach Boys touring band, well overdue in our opinion. He replaces Christian Love, who left the group to embark on a solo career.

Chris Young

February 26, 2016

Hold onto your Stetsons ladies and gents, Country music heartthrob Chris Young is headed out on tour and bringing along his megawatt smile. The crooner brings a touch of romance to his modern take on the classic genre, so it's easy to understand why he won the reality TV show/competition Nashville Star in 2006, winning over (predominantly female) audiences with an effortless charm and a rich, deep vocal tone.

Star Trek - The Ultimate Voyage

March 3, 2016

Take a journey into the cosmos with this unique immersive concert experience exploring 50 years of Star Trek. The franchise's unforgettable musical moments will be presented by a live orchestra, alongside fascinating clips of the series most iconic scenes, beamed onto a giant screen.

Ballet Theatre of Maryland: The Sleeping Beauty

March 19, 2016

Prepare to be mesmerised by this wonderfully magical ballet, recounting one of our most beloved fairytales, that of the cursed Princess Aurora, otherwise known as The Sleeping Beauty, in the first ballet scored by Tchaikovsky.

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater: Revelations

April 26-27, 2016

More than just a popular dance work, Revelations has become a cultural treasure. This enduring classic is born out of the choreographer's "blood memories" of his childhood in rural Texas and the Baptist Church. Since its premiere in 1960, the ballet has been performed continuously around the globe, crossing barriers of faith and nationality, making it the most widely-seen modern dance work in the world.
