Get lucky and see fab shows at Town Hall Symphony Hall Birmingham this summer

I always like to have something in the diary to look forward to; a new event, a show to go to or a gig coming up on the calendar. Having worked with Town Hall Symphony Hall Birmingham for a while now, and reviewing so many fantastic events over the past few years, I know first-hand what an eclectic and exciting mix of events they have on offer, no matter your musical taste and for everyone in the family.

Dates in our diary for the summer include:

  • Travis - The Man Who in Concert, Monday 25th June: Hubs and I love this band and first went to see them very early on in our relationship, so they hold a special place for us and we've seen them many times over the years. I can't wait to see them in this special location, it'll be such a different experience.

Stay tuned for reviews and you can follow me on Instagram for live updates at each event too.

Here's a few other upcoming events this summer that might catch your eye (the full what's on guide can be found here and you can search by category).

Grammy award winning a cappela group Take 6 

Ten time Grammy award winners Take 6 will make their welcome return to Birmingham when they perform at the iconic Symphony Hall on 20 July for their only full UK show of 2018. Heralded by Quincy Jones as the “baddest vocal cats on the planet!”, Take 6 is the quintessential a cappela group and model for vocal genius.

Audiences can look forward to hearing six virtuosic voices united in crystal clear harmony, against a backdrop of syncopated rhythms, innovative arrangements, and funky grooves that bubble into an intoxicating brew of gospel, jazz, R&B, and pop.

With praise from such luminaries as Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Brian Wilson, Ella Fitzgerald and Whitney Houston, the multi-platinum selling sextet has toured across the globe, collaborated across genres, and is recognised as the pre-eminent a capella group in the world.

Showing the global appeal of this phenomenal group, Take 6 celebrated their 25th Anniversary last year with a World Tour including Asia, South America, eastern and western Europe and the United States and debut tours of Australia and Canada. Receiving rave reviews and overwhelming audience reception wherever they go, they remain the quintessential and pre-eminent a capella group in the world, working harder than ever, and loving every minute of it.
