Fame! UK Reunion
Coming exclusively to M&S Bank Arena Liverpool, The original cast of the TV series Fame will reunite for the first time on a U.K. stage in 35 years.
We have received the following message from the producers for Fame UK reunion:
"Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control, Erica Gimpel is no longer able to take part in Fame UK reunion. We are delighted that Loretta Chandler will be stepping into the role of Coco Hernandez from Fame the tv series."
Fame U.K. Reunion concerts will take place here in Liverpool on 5 - 6 May 2019 and the cast will be reuniting to perform a selection of your favourite songs from the smash hit series, along with new and original material. Performers from LMA will be backing the show keeping the vibe young and fresh.
The show will feature no less than eight original cast members of the Fame TV series: Loretta Chandler, Valerie Landsburg (Doris), Lee Curreri (Bruno), Carlo Imperato (Danny), P.R. Paul (Montgomery), Cynthia Gibb (Holly), Nia Peeples (Nicole) and Jesse Borrego (Jesse). The cast is brought together by a small team of volunteers, producing the show in aid of the Claire House Children’s Hospice.
The Kids from Fame are one of the biggest pop acts from the 1980s, emerging from the immensely popular television series Fame. The show ran for six seasons. Five television soundtrack albums were released. Due to huge demand, the cast members did two concert tours as ‘The Kids from Fame’ in the UK, Europe and Israel, including the Royal Albert Hall.
35 years later the cast are back in the UK and are ready to “celebrate life” with you.
The concerts are in aid of Claire House Children’s Hospice. All net profits will be donated to this charity.
