Movie hunk Adam Garcia has joined the cast of ‘Tonight From The West End’ and will headline this musical extravaganza featuring the West End’s best loved hit songs.

Joining him on three Scottish dates - including visits to Dundee and Aberdeen - will be the sensational Christina Bianco and leading lady, Kerry Ellis.

This will be Adam’s concert debut in Scotland and he anticipates a warm welcome.

He said: “I’m so excited to do my first concerts in Scotland. I have Scottish blood so it’ll be like coming home.” 

‘Tonight From The West End’ will appeal to audiences young and old and will feature show stoppers from ‘Wicked’, ‘Saturday Night Fever’, ‘We Will Rock You’ and many more.

Leading lady Kerry Ellis has fast become recognised as the First Lady of West End musicals from her starring roles in London and on Broadway; she has also achieved chart-topping success as a recording artist signed to Universal Decca with her debut album ‘Anthems’.

Kerry originated the role of Meat, in Queen’s ‘We Will Rock You’ and was the first British Elphaba in the West End smash, ‘Wicked’, for which Kerry won the 2008 Award for ‘Best Takeover in a Role’.

She then immediately transferred to Broadway and played Elphaba at the Gershwin Theater for six months, where she won the Audience Award for Favourite Female Breakthrough Performance, before returning to London for six months in 2009.

Her many other leading role credits include Nancy in ‘Oliver!’ at the London Palladium, Eliza Doolittle ‘My Fair Lady’, Ellen in ‘Miss Saigon’ and Fantine in ‘Les Miserables’.

Kerry’s first major CD release was the amazing ‘Wicked in Rock’, which is still flying high in the Dress Circle’s bestseller list. ‘Wicked in Rock’ was a collaboration with long time friend and Queen guitarist, Brian May.

This led to her being signed to Universal as a solo recording artist and her debut album Anthems was released in 2010 on Decca Records.

Earlier this year Kerry joined forces with Brian May again and performed a new arrangement of ‘I Who Have Nothing’ at the Sanremo Festival in Italy, which was screened, live across Europe.

She has been involved in the ‘Les Miserables’ feature film and starred in the Arena tour of Jeff Wayne’s ‘War of the Worlds’ alongside Jason Donavan and Ricky Wilson of the Kaiser Chiefs.

‘Tonight From The West End’ will run for three dates in 2015, playing at the Music Hall, Aberdeen on Thursday, April 23 and the Caird Hall, Dundee on Friday, April 24.
