Strictly star Simone to samba into Stourbridge
Tickets are still available for Strictly Come Dancing star Vincent Simone’s new show in the borough this autumn.
The king of the Argentine Tango is at Stourbridge Town Hall on Wednesday September 28.
Simone joined the hit BBC show in 2006 and was a professional dancer on Strictly for seven series. He never lifted the glitterball but came close in 2008, reaching the final with pop star Rachel Stevens.
Tango Passions is his first solo tour and will see him team up with Argentine Tango specialist Paula Duarte as his leading lady.
Kelly Martin, manager of Stourbridge Town Hall, said:
Vincent is no stranger to our venues, having performed with fellow Strictly star Ian Waite at both Dudley and Stourbridge town halls in recent years.
He has always been popular and gone down a storm, so we can’t wait to see what he has in store for us with his first solo show in September.
There are still tickets left but they are going quickly, so we would urge people to act quickly to avoid disappointment.
Simone’s show is just one of a number being held at Stourbridge Town Hall in the coming months.
On August 2 and August 3, there will be four performances of family show Sarah & Duck's Big Top Birthday, bursting with all the charm from the BAFTA award-winning CBeebies series.
There is live music from award-winning rock 'n' rollers The Bluejays (Fri 2 Sep), Ireland's finest folk group The Kilkennys (Wed 14 Sep) and US acoustic blues pioneer Catfish Keith (Sat 8 Oct).
The hall will host concert cinema screenings from Irish heart-throbs Westlife (Sat 6 Aug) and the 'King of the Waltz' André Rieu (Sun 28 Aug).
There will be exclusive tricks, breath-taking magic and heart-stopping illusions from world-class artists in ILLUSION:IMPOSSIBLE (Sat 10 Sep).
And there is also live comedy from one of the UK’s hottest mimics and stand-ups Luke Kempner (Thu 29 Sep), plus a headline set from Geoff Norcott as part of Comedy Unleashed (Sat 1 Oct).
