NEWS: Tony Christie Makes West End Stage Debut with Dreamboats and Petticoats

Tony Christie – the legendary singer / songwriter is to make his West End stage debut, appearing in the smash-hit musical Dreamboats and Petticoats at London’s Playhouse Theatre on July 5th. 
 
“I saw the show’s original opening night in London almost a year ago and just loved the story.” says Christie, “And of course the music is incredible – The Platters, Phil Spector, Roy Orbison, Marty Wilde – all artists I grew up listening to. As soon as I saw it I’ve been searching for a gap in my diary to join the show.”
 
Christie will play the parts of ‘Older Bobby’ and ‘Phil’ (Bobby’s father), who runs the St. Mungo’s Youth Club, around which the hit feel-good production, is based. With music from the late 50’s and early 60’s driving the story from start to finish, the show – which itself was inspired by the million-plus selling albums Dreamboats and Petticoats (One, Two and Three) – will suit Tony Christie down to the ground. Fans will also be treated to a rendition of Christie’s chart-topping single, ‘(Is This The Way To) Amarillo’, which has been added specially for his run in the show.
