Britain’s Got Talent winner, Colin Thackery, brings 2020 tour to Newcastle

Colin Thackery, the winner who stole everyone’s hearts on Britain’s Got Talent earlier this year,brings his 2020 tour Love Changes Everything to the Tyne Theatre and Opera House stage on Saturday 8th February 2020.

From the Royal Hospital Chelsea, to the Britain’s Got TalentFinal, Colin Thackery made quite an impression from start to finish. When the 89-year-old Chelsea Pensioner Colin Thackery started to sing, there was barely a dry eye in the house. Performing on Britain’s Got Talent in his iconic Scarlet, with a row of medals across his chest, he mesmerised the audience as he lifted his voice in memory of his beloved wife Joan. When he left the stage, he was told that even the technicians were crying. Colin is an incredibly worthy winner.

Since the show Colin has become the oldest person to ever sign their first record deal.

This new headline tour, surrounding his 90th birthday celebration, will see Colin perform all his favourite songs as well as his much loved tracks from Britain’s Got Talent. Colin will also be joined by acclaimed musical director, supervisor and conductor Jae Alexander.

Speaking on the new tour Colin says, “I am so excited to continue this journey and meet lots of new people”.
