Sunny Afternoon will head out on a new UK tour in 2020, it’s been announced.
The musical tells the story of the early life of Ray Davies and the rise to fame of The Kinks, featuring some of the group’s biggest songs such as You Really Got Me, Waterloo Sunset, All Day and All of the Night and Lola.
A teaser reads: “Set against the backdrop of a Britain caught mid-swing between the conservative 50s and riotous 60s, this production explores the euphoric highs and agonising lows of one of Britain’s most celebrated bands and the irresistible music that influenced generations.”
Ray Davies said: “In these times of political uncertainties, it is a relief to know that SUNNY AFTERNOON is on the horizon to lift our spirits”.
The Olivier Award-winning musical first played in London’s West End in 2014 for two years before a tour in 2016.
Casting for the new tour is to be confirmed.
