Let It Shine winners will come to Nottingham in Take That inspired musical


Tour dates have now been announced for the new Take That inspired musical called The Band, which will star the five members of Five to Five, the boy band created on BBC talent show Let It Shine.

But fans will have a long wait to see them in action as the tour doesn’t reach the Theatre Royal in Nottingham until summer 2018.

Tickets go on sale for the two-week run – June 12 to June 23 – on April 3. Prices are yet to be released.

Let It Shine, created by Gary Barlow who was head judge, ran for seven weeks on BBC One – a search for five guys to play the lead roles in the new stage show The Band, written by Tim Firth.

Five to Five were crowned champions at the weekend, beating fellow finalists Nightfall and Drive, who included Nottingham’s Jazzie Mattis.

The quintet, which consists of AJ Bentley, Sario Solomon, Curtis T Johns, Nick Carsberg and Yazdan Qafour, topped the public vote in Saturday’s live final.

The boys will now play the role of the band members in new musical The Band, which is based on the songs of Take That – but is not about the band itself.

What you can expect from the show is obviously a lot of Take That songs, but, rather confusingly, the story is about five 16-year-old girls.

Five to Five will be doing no spoken acting in the production.

The Band will tour the country from September 2017 and finish its opening twelve-month run in July 2018.
