COMING HOME FOR CHRISTMAS

South Shields-born Joe McElderry returns to the North East this December, taking the lead in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat at Newcastle's Metro Radio Arena...

It’s official: former X-Factor winner, Joe McElderry, is back on home turf this Christmas. He’ll be making the festive season colourful at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Aren in his celebrated and critically-acclaimed role of Joseph in the sparkling family musical, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor® Dreamcoat.

The musical will run at Newcastle’s prestigious Metro Radio Arena for a strictly limited season from December 19-31, 2017 and the star’s special Christmas homecoming will complete his hugely successful year touring the UK playing the title-role – his first major theatrical appearance, which has been met with Five Star reviews and standing ovations up and down the country.

It also follows the release of his new recording of the ‘Joseph’ soundtrack (which reached the top of the Amazon Musical Soundtrack Charts,) his top 5 entry in the official charts with his new hit single ‘Gloria’ and the announcement of his highly-anticipated fifth album, Saturday Night at the Movies, and supporting concert The Gloria Tour this summer.

“I am so excited to be bringing this wonderful show back home for Christmas,” says Joe.

“I have had an amazing year touring with Joseph so far and we have had fantastic audiences, so to bring it back to Newcastle over Christmas is very special and is really the icing on the cake to an already fantastic year! I cannot wait to see everyone at the shows over the festive period.”

The vibrant and exciting retelling of the biblical story about Joseph, his eleven brothers and the coat of many colours, sings out to young and old alike with a score crammed with hits, including Jacob and Sons, Close Every Door and Any Dream Will Do.
