    Excellent, I was in Edinburgh with my 16 year old daughter, booked the tickets just the day before,. The show was very good value, vibrant and funny and the music was great, we both came out with a big smile on our faces, exceeded our expectations

  • Some fun but average

    30 December 2016

    A tale of two halves. The acting in first half was poor, diction was awful. The songs were quite good and the band was fantastic. However in the second half because it was mostly a singing performance it was a lot more enjoyable. The chicken song was really good. The venue had multiple columns around the donut stage which gave constant restricted views, overall I'd rate it 6/10
