This tribute to Michael Ball, the king of the West End musical, features his greatest hits.

Songs include the stirring Empty Chairs and Empty Tables and Bring Him Home from Les Miserables, the haunting Gesthemene from Jesus Christ Superstar and the glorious This is the Moment from Jekyll & Hyde.

Michael Courtney and his band raid Michael Ball’s back catalogue of concert favourites. The finale is the song that shot Michael Ball to fame – Love Changes Everything, from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Aspects of Love.

Michael Courtney has appeared in musicals in the West End and on tour, including playing Joseph in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Rolf in The Sound of Music, Action in West Side Story and Edmund in King Lear at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, London.

His other theatre credits include Lion In Winter with Richard Todd, How The other Half Loves with Eric Sykes and Run for your Wife with Britt Ekland.

Michael has also toured with Jasper Carrot, Anne Charleston and Gene Pitney.
