One night only, commencing on Sunday 26th October will be the 20th anniversary 'homecoming' concert at Rugby Theatre. Performing with Simon will be a trio of musicians and backing singers, 'The Awesome Foursome', plus 2 special guest stars.

Simon has a wealth of musical accolades, including; Award winning Musical Supervisor/Conductor of West End and major touring theatrical productions and pre-eminent concert/cabaret Musical Director for London and New York stars such as Olivier Award winners Janie Dee, Clive Rowe and David Bedella, Stephanie J Block, Ramin Karimloo, and Scott Alan.

Simon made his conducting début at the age of 20 conducting the German premier production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Sunset Boulevard'.

Simon has also recorded alongside an all male ensemble vocals for demo album of new musical, 'Company Man', composed by Barney Milner and featured in a duet track opposite Simon Bailey, Recorded/Produced by Ryan Martin.

In 1994, Simon performed the leading role of ‘MC’ in the musical ‘Cabaret’ at Rugby Theatre, as a young amateur. A year later he became a part of the professional community, conducting Andrew Lloyd Webber’s mega musical, ‘Sunset Blvd’, in its European premier in Germany.

Now, 20 years later, having performed all over the world with many leading artists from Victoria Wood, via Elaine Paige, to the ‘Phantom’ himself, Ramin Karimloo, and hot from performing to 15,000 people nightly with Monty Python at London’s O2 arena, he brings his solo concert show back to his home town and Rugby Theatre for the first time for this very special ‘one night only’ event.

Backed by his 7 piece band of London’s finest musicians and backing singers, and with two special guests from the West End and the classical music record industry, this is a night not to be missed, especially based on the reviews from his last local concert:
