THE summer holidays may be over for another year, but there’s still loads to keep you entertained at St David’s Hall!
Over the next few weeks there’s an action-packed programme in store with superb stand-up comedy, legendary musicians and terrific tribute acts. Plus, there’s a perfect parody of a Netflix smash-hit series!
Few names are bigger in the music world than soul superstar Dionne Warwick (Weds 19 Sept), who has worked with genuine greats like Burt Bacharach and sold a staggering 25 million albums worldwide. Dionne is only staging five UK tour dates, so make sure you book quickly if you want to hear the huge hits like Walk on By, Heartbreaker and Don’t Make Me Over. You’re already too late though for Scottish indie rockers Biffy Clyro (Tues 18 Sept), and there’s only limited tickets for iconic doo-wop group The Drifters (Thurs 13 Sept) and 80s giants Europe (Fri 21 Sept). Make sure to keep an eye on our social media for any late seat releases!
There’s more fab music and nostalgia this month with six top tribute shows. The Simon & Garfunkel Story (Weds 12 Sept) celebrates 50 years since the duo first started writing songs together, whilst You Win Again (Thurs 6 Sept) relives all the groovy dancefloor fillers of The Bee Gees. Meanwhile,the uncanny Vika Bull stars centre-stage in At Last: The Etta James Story (Thurs 27 Sept), and Let’s Hang On (Sun 30 Sept) features all the hits and memorable movie soundtracks from Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons. If guitar music is more your thing, then you’ll love the six-string classicsof Dire Straits in Money for Nothing (Weds 26 Sept). Plus, you won’t be able to stop singing and tapping your toes to the tunes of The Dubliners in Seven Drunken Nights (Fri 7 Sept).
Elsewhere, Cardiff’s own Capital City Jazz Orchestra (Tues 11 Sept) return with a helping hand from saxophonist Simon Spillett, and folk heroes Blowzabella (Tues 25 Sept) kick off the 2018/19 Roots Unearthed series with their mix of bagpipes, hurdy-gurdy and acoustic instruments. Another season starting in style is the Lunchtime Concerts, which begin with a powerful performance of piano and cello from the Jenkinson & Frith Duo (Tues 25 Sept).
Dave Gorman (Sat 15 & Sun 16 Sept) is back exploring the intricacies of PowerPoint armed with a laptop and projector screen - but hurry as there’s limited availability! Likewise, there’s very few seats left for Jurassic Park in Concert (Fri 28 Sept) as the Czech National Symphony Orchestra perform a stunning live accompaniment to the epic film. You won’t want to miss this concert that was 65 million years in the making!
If you’re still after something a bit different, there’s a fascinating insight into the life of intrepid explorer and world famous journalist Simon Reeve (Thurs 20 Sept), whilst The Dreamboys (Sat 1 Sept) return with their hottest show yet. And if you’re addicted to the smash-hit Netflix series, you’ll love One Man Stranger Things (Sat 29 Sept) – expect Eggos and all manner of mysterious goings on!
