The Waterboys

The Waterboys

Ever since Mike Scott first brought The Waterboys to public attention their career has been marked by storied departures. Staking out bold, new territory with fresh approaches and inspirational collaborators has been the defining factor of Scott’s creative flow. Now Out Of All This Blue, The Waterboys’ 12 and first double album is maybe the most brilliantly daring and accomplished reinvention of The Waterboys to date.

The show is a sensational showcase of spoken word – a chance to see John perform material both classic and brand new as he delves into his vast back catalogue, as well as his prolific collection of new work, all read from his trademark battered notebooks, delivered in John’s legendary, rapid fire style and iconic Salford drawl.

Ross Noble

Ross Noble

Who is El Hablador? It’s Ross Noble.

No, but who is the one they call El Hablador? I just said, it is Ross Noble. You know? Long hair, does stand up where he dances about the stage, spinning out all the nonsense in his head into a show.

But what is the legend of El Hablador? I don’t think it’s a thing. It’s clearly Ross coming up with a name for his show, so he can make out like he is some sort of mysterious shadowy figure.

Ok I get it.

Ross Noble returns to dance around the stage spinning out all the nonsense in his head into a hilarious stand up show. At some point, he may wander into a shadowy part of the stage and look a bit shadowy.

In the 1880's the site of the present theatre was home to Hengler's Circus. The current theatre was built in 1910 and presented variety. It was originally named The Palladium before changing to the now familiar name The London Palladium in 1934.

The London Palladium became known to many millions in the mid-1950's with the weekly television variety show "Sunday Night at The London Palladium", a format that was revived some years later in the late 1980's with "Live From The Palladium". The theatre has also been used for concerts - perhaps the most famous one being the 1960's Judy Garland/Liza Minnelli concert which was televised on television.

In 1931 the London Palladium saw the emergence of a group of comedians who together formed what became to be known as the famous "Crazy Gang" who occupied the theatre from June 1931 through to Oct 1939.

From the 1980's in particular the London Palladium become associated with large scale musicals such as, "The King and I" with Yul Brynner and Virginia McKenna, Barnum with Michael Crawford, "Singin' in the Rain" with Tommy Steele, the short lived "Ziegfeld" with Topol, "La Cage Aux Follies" with George Hearn and Denis Quilley, the Opera North/Royal Shakespeare Company's production of "Show Boat", "Oliver!" with Jonathan Pryce and "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" starring Michael Ball.
