Some people assume that, when a singer vanish from the music charts, their career is over and done with. However, that is not always the case. Just take former Sugababes singer Jade Ewen for example. Jade has just joined the cast of the new Ben Elton musical Tonight's the Night, which features over 20 Rod Stewart songs.
Stewart said of the musical, "In the past, any ideas for musicals revolving around my songs just didn't work for me.; "It was only when we were approached to do Tonight's The Night that the idea really took off. I'm absolutely thrilled that this great show is touring the UK again."
Meanwhile, Elton added, "Rod is such a totally unique artist. I initially approached him about a musical because his songs are all about storytelling and I felt that a great story could grow from them."
As well as featuring Jade Ewen, the rest of the cast includes Michelle Antrobus, Joshua Dever, Amy Diamond, Rosie Fletcher, Rosie Heath, Sinead Long, Tom Millen, Darryl Paul, Ricky Rojas, Spin and Lindsey Tierney. The tour will begin on January 20 at Manchester Palace Theatre and finish on August 2 at Canterbury Marlow Theatre.
