Rip It Up – Bringing you the finest hits from the '60s
Expect the most remarkable Strictly spin-off boy band. Look forward to a string of dazzling '60s tunes from back in the day when women's skirts were shorter than belts and men felt coolly confident wearing deep purple velvet flares. You're in for a treat thanks to a massive, irresistible explosion of songs, dance, acrobatics, and remarkable visual effects. Welcome to Rip It Up 2019!
The band is made up of singers Aston Merrygold from JLS and Jay McGuiness from The Wanted, drummer Harry Judd from McFly and McBusted, and the brilliant Olympic champion Louis Smith whose eye-watering gymnastic feats seriously impress. So far so good. But the best thing is, all four are the most incredible, amazing dancers. And that's what makes this superb show really take off.
The four boys are joined by a large cast of talented dancers, singers, and musicians, all of whom collaborate to deliver a unique celebration of the 1960s' iconic tunes, sights, sounds and events, a magical decade that changed the world forever. The band members are all passionate about dance, of course. Aston was a Strictly contestant in 2017's competition, the 'People’s Champion’. Harry won in 2011. Louis won in 2012 and took the prize for 2017's Christmas special too. And, of course, Jay was crowned champion in 2015.
The songs? You're going to love this. There are tunes by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Beach Boys, The Byrds, The Doors, Burt Bacharach, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and loads more, all performed to perfection by a group of young men who weren't even born when the songs first hit the charts.
Genuine film footage from the decade support the music beautifully, and there are plenty of awe-inspiring visual delights to enjoy. This show really does showcase the atmosphere, the excitement, the rebellion that the decade signified in all its colourful glory.
Rip It Up – The 60s is a dose of pure energy. The tunes are uplifting, the artists legends in their own lifetime. If you adore Strictly, love the 1960s, or both, come along and sing along.
