Sir Michael Parkinson - Our Kind of Music

Sir Michael Parkinson - Our Kind of Music

Alongside his interviewing and writing Sir Michael Parkinson has spent much of his career promoting the appreciation of the music of the Great American Songbook and encouraging those of the new generation who are fighting to keep that flame alive. In the process, he has developed an encyclopaedic knowledge of that genre as well as interviewing some of the greats and finding time to talent spot the likes of Bublé, Krall and Cullum.  But he is much more than a jazzer.  His taste in music takes in everything from Razorlight to Paul Simon, The Beatles to Oasis with the consequence that Sir Michael’s seal of approval came to mean a great deal with every record label in the country wanting to bottle his A&R talent.

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.
