Footloose musical UK Tour

Everybody Cut Loose as the explosive Rock ‘n’ Roll musical Footloose burst onto the stage in 2016. In fact, the tour proved so popular that it is back in 2017 including a limited West End season at the Peacock Theatre. Now, Footloose is back in 2020.

The Footloose UK Tour will star Gareth Gates as Willard*. Based on the 1980s riveting screen sensation, which took the world by storm with its youthful spirit, dazzling dance and electrifying music. Footloose tells the story of city boy Ren who has to move to a rural backwater in America where dancing is banned. All hell breaks out as Ren breaks loose and soon has the whole town up on its feet.
