This year's amazing tribute acts.
In 12 years the band have over 600 gigs under their belts across the length and breadth of the UK and abroad in numerous countries.
The band are firmly established in many of the country's top tribute venues with repeat bookings year after year. They regularly tour abroad and have played in nearly 20 different countries, some of them regularly. Their adventures have led them to appear on Sky News, BBC Radio One and Two and The Gadget Show and to have played at festivals along with Bob Geldof, KT Tunstall, Ringo Starr and Roxette to name but a few.
The American Divas is a spectacular live tribute to 3 of the greatest women in music, Madonna, Cher and Tina Turner backed by an incredible live band and dancers...
More about the show...
The American Divas reveal their uncanny copycat to the Material Girl herself, Madonna. The striking choreography and couture costumes based on originals by Gaultier and Givenchy are the ultimate tribute to the Queen of Pop's famous sell-out tours. With hits including VOGUE, LIKE A PRAYER and HUNG UP, we are reminded exactly why Madonna is the biggest selling female artist of all time.
With a remarkable recreation of Cher's spectacular tours, the cast draws the audience into Cher's crazy world of flamboyant hair and outrageous costumes. Topped off with that distinctive deep, rich voice and dry wit, the show features all the greatest hits including the classic TURN BACK TIME, THE SHOOP SHOOP SONG and Grammy Award-winning BELIEVE.
Tina Turner -
Exploding to the stage is West End performer Karin Bello, who throws herself heart and soul into the incredible ball of energy that is Tina Turner. With the voice, the legs and the dynamic stage presence of Tina herself, Karin leads the dancers across the stage with a strut, a shimmy and a shake to hits such as THE BEST, RIVER DEEP MOUNTAIN HIGH and PROUD MARY.
KT Perry is the UK's No. 1 tribute to Katy Perry. Stunning Vocals, replica costumes, amazing choreography and incredible stage presence. The KT Perry show will have you up on your feet dancing and singing along to all of Katy Perry's biggest hit songs. With Cupcake and lollipop stage props, confetti release and beautiful routines, the KT Perry show will knock your socks off!
Some tribute artists look like their idol, some sound like their idol. Paul Bacon as Elton John does both! Close your eyes and you won’t believe your ears, open your eyes and you won’t believe them either! You simply won’t find a closer tribute to Sir Elton John.
"Having been Elton John's manager for 28 years, I was absolutely flabbergasted when I saw Paul walk out to take the stage, momentarily believing it was Elton himself, and when he started to sing I was even more convinced.". John Reid.
If You Like REM, You Will Love this REM tribute band! They are the premier REM tribute band in Europe and no other REM tribute is as experienced!
This REM tribute is the only REM tribute in the World to have an endorsement from Michael Stipe himself!!
Since forming in 2004, Oasish, have quickly become the most sought-after oasis tribute band in the UK. Not only does the band feature many professional musicians, it also features members that have played the bigger stages with names such as Robbie Williams, Pete Townshend (The Who), Bryan Adams, Chesney Hawkes, Nik Kershaw, Jason Donovan plus many more...
As one happy spectator once said, "Oasish were far more entertaining than the real thing on the 2 occasions I have seen them. If they were ever on the same bill at the same time I would watch Oasish every time!!!"
