The Glenn Miller Show
As his legion of fans already know, Tommy Steele – Britain’s first Rock and Roll Star – made his legitimate debut in 1958 starring in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella, which enjoyed a sold out run at the London Coliseum. What they probably don’t know is that the inspiration for Tommy’s extraordinary career was an American band leader whose music Tommy had worshiped from the moment he first heard it in his early teens.
And so, 60 years on, Tommy Steele returns to the London Coliseum to salute his idol Glenn Miller, in a new musical celebration…
Featuring the authentic sounds of ‘In the Mood’, ‘Moonlight Serenade’, ‘Little Brown Jug’, ‘Pennsylvania 6-5000’, ‘Tuxedo Junction’, ‘Chattanooga Choo Choo’, and many more…
…the life, fame and untimely death of the big band leader whose music defined an era is celebrated in The Glenn Miller Show.
