West End and Broadway star and musical innovator Ramin Karimloo will bring his unique band, The Broadgrass Band to London for a very special one-off show at London’s Eventim Apollo on Wednesday, 15th December.
Billed as ‘An Evening with Ramin Karimloo & The Broadgrass Band’, the Iranian-born Canadian singer and performer will deliver his reinterpretations of musical theatre hits, folk favourites and some of Ramin’s original songs all under the Broadgrass style he has made his own – breathing some bluegrass into Broadway and bringing some drama into Bluegrass.
Talking of the show Karimloo said, “I can’t wait to return to London to perform these songs with The Broadgrass Band at Hammersmith’s legendary Eventim Apollo this December. We’ll be pulling out all the hits for what I promise to be a celebratory evening that’s been a long time coming.”
Known around the world as one of the most formidable talents in musical theatre, Karimloo’s portrayal of leading roles such as Jean Valjean in Les Miserables on Broadway (2014 Tony Award nominee) and London’s West End, and the Phantom in Phantom of The Opera in London, served to highlight why he is a musical force unlike any other.
Karimloo immortalised the role in the 25th Anniversary Concert of Phantom of The Opera at The Royal Albert Hall, and originated the leading role in Love Never Dies, the sequel to Phantom of the Opera, for which he received an Olivier Award nomination. In addition, he played the role of Enjolras in the 25th Anniversary of Les Miserables at the O2 Arena in London.
Karimloo was then introduced to a new audience when he joined the main cast of the BBC drama series Holby City in 2019, playing consultant cardiothoracic surgeon Kian Madani.
Karimloo’s style of music is both innovating and exciting as he merges the two genres together seamlessly. The show at the Eventim is bound to be a spectacle not to be missed!
