Elaine Page: Stripped Back

Elaine Page: Stripped Back


'Stripped Back' will see Elaine Paige perform her favourite tracks, from an array of contemporary songwriters, with a small group of musicians. This follows Elaine's last solo tour in 2014 which was a sell out celebratory concert encompassing her incredible 50 year career and saw her say "farewell" to a full touring schedule. Elaine said: "I'm so excited about this series of 'weekend' concerts. Having made the decision not to do a back to back tour again, this appealed to me not only because of the schedule, but as I've marked my 50 years on stage, this is going to allow me to do something completely different, a brand new show celebrating the contemporary songwriters I love such as Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman, Jim Webb, Burt Bacharach, Leonard Cohen, Sting, Elton John, Lennon & McCartney ... the list goes on. Their music has been the soundtrack to all our lives, not just mine. And its the ideal opportunity to perform in an intimate way ... I recently played the Royal Albert Hall with the 60 piece BBC Concert Orchestra ... I'm doing these new shows 'Stripped Back!" Elaine has performed live in concert all over the world and as a recording artist has worked with legendary producers such as Tony Visconti, Dennis Lambert, Peter Matz, & Phil Ramone amongst others and has released 22 solo albums (four multi-Platinum and nine Gold,) been featured on seven cast recordings and has had major worldwide hits with songs such as Memory (Cats) and I Know Him So Well (Chess.) As a musical theatre performer Elaine has made a major contribution to the modern musical. She has starred in more smash hit West End & Broadway musicals than anyone else of her generation and continues to present the hugely successful weekly BBC Radio 2 show Elaine Paige on Sunday, which is devoted to musical theatre and film music, and continues to delight audiences of over 2.5 million listeners each week with its mix of music, news and interviews.
