Former Strictly star Brendan Cole is embarking on his final tour before moving on to the next chapter of his career, but he is determined to go out with a bang

BRENDAN Cole is bringing his popular Show Man tour to the Congress Theatre in Eastbourne in what he vows will be his final tour.

Taking its inspiration from the magic of theatre and the movies, Show Man brings something for everyone.

With his amazingly talented hand-picked championship dancers and scorching eight piece live big band and singers, Brendan will bring audiences many of their favourite Strictly dance styles with choreography full of excitement, intimacy, emotion and skill.

Brendan emphasised that his latest show is no “sit back and watch” production; each show is full on high energy dance dynamite, up close and personal, with superb choreography, stunning lighting and amazing special effects.

Expect everything from a cheeky Charleston to a saucy Salsa to Despacito, music from Beggin’ to Bublé, plus numbers from The Greatest Showman and La La Land.

Brendan is best known from television favourite Strictly Come Dancing where he danced the first show of the first series and lifted the very first glitterball trophy.

Show Man is hiss fifth theatrical production and sees him tour the UK for the 12th time.

He said: “I’m really excited to be bringing back Show Man having toured this production early in 2019.

“This is my most exciting tour to date it’s so dynamic and theatrical – much more so than any previous tour.

“We have five male dancers, three female dancers, choirs, a violinist and brand new staging which allows the choreography to be exciting and different with bigger and better lifts, some very strong theatrical numbers as well as a new look set.

“It really is something special.

“My aim is to wow the audience and give them everything they’d expect and much, much more.”

However, he is now set to take a big step back from the limelight.

He added: “This will be my last big band tour after touring for so many years. In some ways it will be sad to say goodbye but it is time to move on to the next chapter.

“I’ve loved every second of being on the stage with my friends who have now become family.

“It’s time for something different and I’m honoured to be taking Show Man out for one last run.

“I’m so proud of this production and I’m going out on a high.”

The Show Man Tour is at the Congress Theatre in Eastbourne on March 13
