The multi Olivier Award-winning hit Sunny Afternoon UK Tour is back in 2020 opening at the Manchester Opera House in 7 August 2020 with further dates to be announced.

The Kinks exploded onto the 60s music scene with a raw energetic new sound that rocked a nation. But how did that happen, where exactly did they come from and what happened next?

Set against the backdrop of a Britain caught mid-swing between the conservative 50s and riotous 60s, this production explores the euphoric highs and agonising lows of one of Britain’s most iconic bands and the irresistible music that influenced generations.

Sunny Afternoon features some of The Kinks’ best-loved songs, including You Really Got Me, Waterloo Sunset and Lola.

Producer Sonia Friedman said today, “I’ve loved this musical from the moment Ray Davies, Joe Penhall, Ed Hall and I started to develop it several years ago and am incredibly excited and proud that we are bringing back our joyous and celebratory Olivier Award-winning Best New Musical. For those who missed it the first-time round, UK audiences will have the treat of experiencing it for the very first time or, if you’ve seen it before, you’ll be able to see it again and again! The Kinks helped shape a generation and Ray’s beautifully truthful lyrics and music are as exhilarating and relevant today as the day he wrote them. I’m so happy we will all get a chance to see Sunny Afternoon soon – I’ve missed it in my life.”

Ray Davies added, “In these times of political uncertainties, it is a relief to know that Sunny Afternoon is on the horizon to lift our spirits”.
