Stage and screen star Andy Abraham is celebrating the 100th birthday of the legendary Nat King Cole at Lincoln’s New Theatre Royal.

Andy, who achieved fame on ITV’s The X Factor, is taking his Nat King Cole Songbook tour to theatres throughout the UK this spring and comes to Lincoln on May 3.

Nat King C ole was a jazz legend who sold more than 50 million records during a glittering career, which was recognised with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

The centenary of his birth, on March 17, is set to be celebrated by jazz fans worldwide and Andy, himself a platinum-selling artist, is delighted to have an opportunity to perform Nat’s music in such a significant year.

Andy said: “I feel extremely honoured that I get to celebrate a true legend in this way.

“This show really targets people who share my enjoyment of Nat’s music.

“His legacy, which has lived long in the industry, is something I really admire, and I think the fact that his music is still widely regarded as some of the best the industry, demonstrates the sheer impact he had on the world.”

The show will be a mix of the pianist and vocalist’s most-loved songs, and, will also include commentary from Andy throughout.

Tickets for the Lincoln show are available now on 01522 519999 or online.
