Brit-Award winners Blake are back and better than ever, with a refined new sound, new songs and their biggest UK tour yet, which is set to arrive at Lynn’s Corn Exchange tonight.

Re-inspired by the enduring trio harmonies of The Three Tenors, The Bee Gees, The Lettermen & Boyz-II-Men, Blake’s latest concert show entitled ‘In Harmony’ sees them combining classic songs from their first four award winning albums, with exclusive new songs from their upcoming 5th album ‘In Harmony’.

Musicals, pop and classical songs collide in the group’s most eclectic stage spectacular yet, accompanied by great musicians and impressive video projections!

Returning from summer tours to the United States, Russia, Eastern Europe, South Africa & Asia, we expect their famous and hilarious rat-pack banter with the audience to feature some fascinating new stories!

Supporting this tour as special guest artist will be the beautiful Brit-Award-nominated soprano Camilla Kerslake, performing her own spellbinding songs and joining the boys for some breath-taking duets throughout the evening. Camilla has previously toured with classical superstar Andrea Bocelli and she also joined with Blake to headline the Brit Awards at the Royal Albert Hall.

Blake are once again searching the UK for talented local choirs to join them on stage as part of their In Harmony tour. Over the last five years the group have been joined by more than 250 local choirs around the UK and overseas, in venues as far apart as Manchester, Moscow and Manila. Humphrey Berney said: “We three guys got our musical starts in life through performing in choirs, so it’s been inspirational to see so many UK groups sending us their YouTube clips for consideration over the years. We look forward to welcoming 20 more talented groups of singers to our shows this Autumn”.

Choirs simply need to email their latest videos to the Blake website and the chosen groups will perform alongside Blake on five big ensemble songs, as well as present their own solo song to the audience.

Performers in past guest choirs for Blake’s shows have recently been seen attaining places at prestigious London music colleges and even taking star roles in West End shows.

Ollie Baines said: “We’re delighted that our campaign to get local choirs on professional stages results in new solo stars being found. Singing within a choir is the best way to build confidence as a vocalist. The UK should be proud of its choral heritage.”

Blake In Harmony will be at Lynn’s Corn Exchange on Friday, October 10. Tickets cost £26.50 and are available from the box office on 01553 764864 or online at www.kingslynncornexchange.co.uk
