RIP IT UP - THE 60s - press / VIP night - Garrick Theatre, London WC2.

The ultimate Strictly boy band of dance bring the 60s smashing into the 21st century, in an explosion of song, dance, acrobatics and amazing visuals!

What shines through is the incredible dancing talents of our awesome foursome Aston Merrygold (JLS), Jay McGuiness (The Wanted), Harry Judd (McFly), and Louis Smith (Olympian), who also sing, drum and perform some amazing gymnastics that will have you out of your seat dancing and singing the night away!

The boys are joined by an incredible cast of dancers, singers and musicians, to celebrate the iconic sounds, sights and events of the decade which transformed the 20th Century. One of the most energetic shows to ever hit the West End stage, just watching will leave you exhausted.

Dance the night away with music from the legends who shook a generation including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Beach Boys, The Byrds, The Doors, The Mamas & The Papas, Dusty Springfield, Burt Bacharach, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin, James Brown Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, The Supremes and many more.

With celebrity contributions on screen, footage from the era and a host of other visual delights, the show celebrates everything there is to love about the 60s.

The 60s are back with a bang!


Celebrity guests in the crowd included Lulu , Paul Young and Lizzie Cundy.

Also here were Jonathan Shalit, Rhydian Roberts, Richard Arnold, Kate Garraway, Leo Green, Tom Fletcher,

Dougie Poynter, Darcey Bussell, Ashley Roberts, Kimberley Wyatt, Melvin Odoom and Danny Jones.

The show was on for around 2 hours 10 mins over two sets of 60 mins and 70 mins.

There is a big screen which acts as a television screen from the 1960s which showed video clips chat

from the likes of Lulu, Roger Daltrey, Tony Blackburn, Dionne Warwick, Zandra Rhodes and others.

Lots of great songs from the 60s including segments from The Beatles, Burt Bacharach and Motown/Soul.

All four of the guys have been on Strictly Come Dancing so there is a dance routine for every song.

The energy they burn up through the evening will keep them fit for their stint here.

Leggy girl dancers in tight shorts and mini skirts were nice to look at.

Lots of colourful costumes from the boys and the dancers.

The crowd were up an dancing for the last few songs.

The last song was 'Shout' and the cast pointed to Lulu who was sitting a few rows back.

An enjoyable show.


I was at the after-party for this event at The Cafe de Paris from 10pm to 11.30pm.

Around 300 guests are here including the cast.

This show is so much fun, full of energy, non stop brilliant singing and dancing. The time just flies by as you sing along to the 60s classics. Jay, Harry, Louis and Ashton are superb, with an enormous amount of stamina. Loved it so much I’m going again.

Brilliant. One of the best musicals ever. the boys were so good. How they remembered all the routines was amazing. My favourite musical has always been 'Les Mis' but now, not so sure.
