History’s most famous concert is being reimagined as a London stage musical, debuting at The Old Vic in early 2024. The 1985 gig ran for 16 hours and was watched by over 160,000 people in person and over 1.5 billion people via the live broadcast. Curated by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure to raise money and awareness for Ethiopian famine relief, the musical will chronicle the lead-up to the big day, showcasing how ‘the day rock ‘n’ roll changed the world’ came to be.

Getting back in the habit for a limited run next year is Sister Act, the smash-hit musical based on the 1992 film starring Whoopi Goldberg as nun-on-the-run Deloris van Cartier. The task of stepping into the shoes of Deloris this time round, however, will be a two-part affair – with Olivier Award winner Beverley Knight starring in the first half of the show’s run and pop icon Alexandra Burke picking up the second half.
