The very first Love Never Dies UK Tour has been cancelled. The sequel to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom Of The Opera was to have opened at Leicester Curve.
Latest: The Love Never Dies UK Tour appears to have been cancelled with the first two announced stops at Leicester Curve and Manchester Opera House being withdrawn from sale.
There is an indication that the production may be rescheduled in 2021, but without announced tour dates we are listing the event as cancelled at the moment to avoid confusion.
Following on from a sell-out tour of North America, the Love Never Dies UK Tour was to have opened at Leicester Curve on Saturday 26 September 2020 before moving to the Manchester Opera House on 14 October 2020 with further venues to be announced.
Love Never Dies the musical has music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, lyrics by Glenn Slater, book by Ben Elton, based on The Phantom of Manhattan by Frederick Forsyth, additional lyrics by Charles Hart, orchestrations by David Cullen and Andrew Lloyd Webber.
Whilst the original production of Love Never Dies played at the Adelphi Theatre, London for a short run, this reworked production of the show was first seen in Australia, before embarking on the hugely successful tour of North America and received acclaim from both audiences and critics alike. It is directed by Simon Phillips, with set and costume design by Gabriela Tylesova, choreography by Graeme Murphy and sound design by Mick Potter.

It is 10 years after his disappearance from the Paris Opera House and the Phantom has escaped to a new life in New York where he lives amongst the screaming joy rides and freak shows of Coney Island.

In a final bid to win back Christine’s love, The Phantom lures her, Raoul, and their young son Gustave, from Manhattan to the glittering and glorious world of Coney Island… not knowing what is in store for them….
