Multi-platinum artist Josh Groban will wrap up the European leg of his 'Stages' tour at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre on May 29.
‘Stages’ is Groban’s7th studio album and his highest charting album to date in Ireland coming in at number 2 in the Irish charts while it hit number one in the UK.
Tickets go on general sale from Friday September 25th priced from €59.50 including booking fee via www.ticketmaster.ie
It is a collection of some of the greatest musical theatre songs of all time, which Groban describes as “gorgeously arranged songs that have stood the test of time,” and which he was drawn to because of their combination of “incredible melody with an incredible story.”
Recorded with producers Humberto Gatica and Bernie Herms in both Los Angeles and London’s Abbey Road (with a 75-piece orchestra), ‘Stages’ features songs from musicals including Les Misérables (‘Bring Him Home’); Carousel (‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’); Into the Woods (‘Children Will Listen’); Phantom of the Opera (‘All I Ask of You’) and The Wizard of Oz (‘Over the Rainbow’).
It also features three duets: Kelly Clarkson is featured on ‘All I Ask of You’ (“she can, quite simply, do anything”); Audra McDonald sings on ‘If I Loved You’ (“in my head I heard her on this and to sing it in the room with her was a dream come true”); and trumpeter Chris Botti plays on ‘Old Devil Moon’ (“he plays with such control and expressiveness”).
