This year United Kingdom�s representative in the Eurovision Song Contest, Andy Abraham, has just embarked on his national theatre tour. From November to July 2009, Andy will be visiting over 50 theatres in the UK, giving his fans a chance to hear tracks from his latest album Even If, along with many songs featured in the 2005 season of ITV talent show X-Factor which saw his transformation from a the former bin man to a top selling recording artist. His debut album, The Impossible Dream, entered the charts at number 2 in 2006, selling 176,000 copies in its first week
Unfortunately ticket sales for his latest concert were disappointingly low with less than 200 people turning up to see him at the Worthing Assembly Hall. The venue has a capacity of 900.Andy Abraham’s agent Barry Collings said the low turnout to the show was a reflection of the country’s current financial situation. He said: “The show went down very well with the audience members that were there. “The small attendance is entirely due to the current credit crunch and everyone is seeing attendances hit across the country for all types of shows.”
A spokeswoman for Worthing Theatres said: “Andy Abraham’s concert was very much enjoyed by his loyal fan base and he proved what a personable entertainer he is by happily signing autographs and meeting and greeting them before the concert.”
The tour will continue over the next 8 months and will include theatre appearances in over 50 UK towns, including Portsmouth, Milton Keynes, Swansea, Newcastle, Bournemouth and Ipswich.
