The Barricade Boys are hitting the road in 2022, with their new Bring Him Home Tour.
Fresh from their crowd loving appearance at West End Live earlier this month – their fifth consecutive appearance at the annual celebration of London theatre – the boys will kick off their tour at Wales Millennium Centre on 1 May 2022.
Starring past performers from the global theatrical sensation that is Les Misérables, The Barricade Boys features Craig Mather, Kieran Brown, Scott Garnham and Simon Schofield.
Simon and Scott established The Barricade Boys in 2015 with the aim of creating a night at the musicals like no other. They blend powerhouse vocal harmonies and slick dance routines with a journey through the decades of musical theatre, bound together by the friendship and affection they have for each other, sharing anecdotes from the shows they have starred in.
Brought together through their shared experience as past performers in the global stage sensation Les Misérables, The Barricade Boys are one of the most exciting musical theatre groups in the UK.
The Bring Him Home tour will feature songs from shows including The Phantom Of The Opera, Miss Saigon, Jersey Boys and, of course, Les Mis, alongside hits from pop and rock music’s all-time greats.
Announcing the tour, Scott said: “The Barricade Boys all have one thing in common – our shared history of performing in the West End, International tour and movie versions of Les Misérables, which is the world’s greatest musical without a doubt. Through that connection, we have developed great friendships which make our shows a very special event for theatregoers.”
“While our background is in musical theatre, we also love to perform hits from the greatest artists of our time – and we can’t wait to share our take on tracks from music legends such as The Rolling Stones, Tom Jones, The Beatles and Elton John.” Simon added.
Ben Hatton, Director of Theatre Touring for promoters Cuffe and Taylor, said: “A night with The Barricade Boys is a must-see for any fans of musical theatre. They are an exceptionally talented group who were all born to entertain and we’re delighted to present their latest UK tour.”
