THE CHOIR OF MAN STORMS NORTH AMERICA IN FIRST U.S. TOUR!

Monday, September 24, 2018

DES MOINES, IA ― Des Moines Performing Arts will present THE CHOIR OF MAN at the Des Moines Civic Center on Thursday, Jan. 31, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. as part of their North American tour! This worldwide smash, and runaway hit of numerous music festivals, will have stateside audiences on their feet! Tickets to THE CHOIR OF MAN will be available on Monday, Oct. 1, 2018 at DMPA.org, the Civic Center Ticket Office, and by phone at 515-246-2300.

Known across the globe as “the ultimate-feel good show,” THE CHOIR OF MAN offers up 90 minutes of indisputable joy. It’s a party. It’s a concert. It’s a pint-filled good time set in a real working pub that combines hair-raising harmonies, high-energy dance, and live percussion with foot-stomping choreography. The multi-talented cast of nine handsome blokes sings everything – pub tunes, folk, Broadway, classic rock – all to roof-raising heights. It’s the best singing, dancing, stomping, pub crawl of a show you’ll ever attend! 

One of the show’s producers, Nic Doodson states, “The guys have spent the last couple of years touring the UK and Australia and they are ready to bring this show to American audiences! This concert is such a great time for all – whether it’s a ladies night, first date, guys night out or even a bachelorette party! So, grab your best mates and we’ll see you at the venue…the first pint is on us (seriously!)”

Imagine the greatest pub gig you’ve ever been to, multiply it by ten, and you’ll still be nowhere near the fun that this show exudes throughout. The show celebrates music that has wide appeal including songs by Adele, Queen, Paul Simon, Katy Perry, Red Hot Chili Peppers and more. The cast features world-class tap dancers, acrobats, singers, instrumentalists and poets, ensuring that there is something for everyone in this joyous and uplifting show for all ages.

THE CHOIR OF MAN is the latest show from the creative minds of Nic Doodson and Andrew Kay – the team behind Soweto Gospel Choir, The Magnets, and the award-winning North by Northwest.

”A feast for the senses, Choir of Man will have you dancing down the aisles. Leave your worries in your coat and grab a pint!” – Broadway Baby
