Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musicals to be celebrated in summer concert

By Robin Johnson Published 20 February 2018

The work of Andrew Lloyd Webber, who turns 70 this year, will be celebrated at a special musical event this Summer, with performers including Tyrone Huntley and the West End casts of School Of Rock – The Musical and The Phantom Of The Opera.

Also set to perform at the event are talent show winners and actors Ben Forster and Joe McElderry, Irish singer/songwriter Imelda May, and actress and singer Mica Paris. Further star names are to be announced, all accompanied by The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, and the evening will culminate in a spectacular firework display.

Audiences can expect to hear showstopper songs from a variety of musicals in Andrew’s world-famous repertoire, including Cats, Jesus Christ Superstar, Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Evita, and Starlight Express.

Andrew Lloyd Webber - A Musical Celebration

As part of the ongoing celebrations for his 70th birthday this year, Andrew Lloyd Webber – A Musical Celebration will take place on Sunday 17 June at the Royal Hospital Chelsea.

The most successful musical theatre composer in history, Andrew’s productions have sold more than 330 million tickets worldwide, being seen in more than 80 countries around the world. When Sunset Boulevard joined School of Rock, Cats and The Phantom Of The Opera on Broadway last year, he became the only person to equal the record set in 1953 by Rodgers and Hammerstein, with four Broadway shows running concurrently, and he has claimed a multitude of awards, including seven Tonys, three Grammys, seven Oliviers, one Golden Globe and an Oscar.

Andrew also owns seven West End theatres, including the Theatre Royal Drury Lane and the London Palladium, and last year acquired The Other Palace, which he has established as a unique London home for new musicals in development and fledgling writing talent.

Tickets for the A Musical Celebration go on sale at 10am on Friday 23 February through the Live At Chelsea website.

Join in the celebration of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s work – see The Phantom Of The Opera or School Of Rock – The Musical!

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
