Only Men Aloud
Special Guest: Gruffyd Wyn
Ten years ago, this coming summer, Only Men Aloud became the Last Choir Standing, winning the BBC1 primetime show and becoming Britain’s favourite choir. To celebrate this anniversary, Only Men Aloud are heading back on the road to perform their Decade Tour – a celebration of the last ten years.
Since winning Last Choir Standing, Only Men Aloud have gone on to achieve great success. In 2009, their album Band of Brothers won a Classical Brit Award for Best Album of the Year. They have toured every year since winning the show, all around the world and have worldwide record sales of over 300,000.
Over the years, the hugely popular group have built up a strong fan base across the world and were honoured to be asked to sing at the London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony at the very moment the Olympic Flame was lit. This performance was broadcast to an estimated global TV audience of 900 million people.
Gruffydd is a talented Classical crossover artist who hails from the Isle of Anglesey North Wales. A singer from an early age, he has dedicated his life to following his dream of becoming a world-class vocal performer.
Gruffydd has recently seen success as a finalist on the globally renowned talent show ‘Britain’s Got Talent’, where he received Amanda Holden’s Golden Buzzer and narrowly missed out on a place on the podium.
During the series he received widespread acclaim for his big voice and professional performances under pressure; with judges’ comments such as ‘Epic, phenomenal and outrageously good’ and Simon Cowell calling him “The musical version of Rocky”.
