Posted onPosted on 31st Aug

Mansfield Palace Theatre is  reopening its doors following a month-long closure to undertake routine summer maintenance with a variety of original artistes and top tributes.

On Thursday, 1 September The ELO Experience includes a string section, light show and large screen projection to enhance the experience of hearing hits like Living Thing, Evil Woman, Don’t Bring Me Down, Mr Blue Sky and more.

Sian Booth, Cultural Services manager for Mansfield District Council, said: “We’re chuffed to announce another season of iconic and era-defining music in Mansfield. In a town full of music lovers we know we’re on to a winner with a line-up of some of the biggest household names in the business. So whether you’re with us for one of our world-famous tributes, or here for the real deal themselves like T’Pau and The South, you’re guaranteed anthem after anthem, night after night.

“We’re still making up for lost time, so let’s make this autumn count with a great night out. We’ve loads of new beers, fancy gins and our lovely team will be ready with the prosecco on ice.

“There’s one thing we can always be certain of, great music never changes. So let’s come together and celebrate the records that made us – and enjoy an ultimate night of care-free fun.”

On Wednesday 7 September The South (pictured) perform the songs of The Beautiful South. The nine-piece band features former members of The Beautiful South, including singer Alison Wheeler and lifelong sax player Gaz Birtles. Together they recreate treasured songs such as A Little Time, Perfect 10, Rotterdam, Song for Whoever, Don’t Marry Her and many more.

T’Pau burst on to the music scene in 1987 with the hit Heart and Soul, which reached number 4 in both the UK and US charts. They also had the classic ballad China in your Hand? The original line up of T’Pau split in 1991 after a final Top 20 hit, Whenever You Need Me, but Carol built a new version of the group.
