Britain’s Got Talent stars Collabro are coming to Hull City Hall this Friday. We caught up with the boys to find out more.

The talented foursome actually first met in a pub in London, just a month before their first public performance on the BGT stage. They quickly rose to fame after winning the popular TV talent show back in 2014. Since then, they have become one of the world’s most successful musical theatre groups, with a number one debut album under their belts.

Collabro have rightfully become global superstars, performing to 30 million people in Japan and 7 million at Soccer Aid 2016.

Earlier this year saw the release of their third studio album, ‘Home’, which boasted a number of theatre favourites and their first original recording ‘Lighthouse’. This song also reached the Top 10 charts in the UK.

It’s safe to say, we can’t wait to see the group take to the stage in Hull on Friday.

What can audiences expect from the show?

Michael Auger: The show is truly amazing, it’s our biggest and most technically spectacular concert to date. We have a few really nice surprises, alongside a local children’s choir at each venue, which joins us for a few numbers. In Hull, this will be the Northern Academy of Performing Arts.

What would you say to someone who is completely new to Collabro to get them to try something different?

Jamie Lambert: Everyone who comes down to see us always claims that they have been on an emotional roller coaster! I would say to prepare for a lot of laughter, smiles and tears – the lot. We value new fans as much as the old, and love to meet new people. So definitely come down to see us to be converted.

What has life been like since your success on Britain’s Got Talent?

Matt Pagan: Life is wonderful. We get to travel the world doing what we love for a living, and with our best friends to boot. What more could you want? We are really lucky, and really grateful to our fans who have supported us all the way.

Are you looking forward to performing in Hull?

Thomas Redgrave: Hull is one of our favourite cities and we’re especially looking forward to performing during its year as the UK City of Culture. We’re so pleased to be coming back to Hull City Hall; it’s a beautiful venue and the audience is always incredible. See you there!

Collabro performs at Hull City Hall on Friday 17 November. Tickets start from £19.50 and can be purchased on the Hull Theatres website.
