Fascinating Aïda at St Ives September Festival
Fascinating Aïda, back on the road with a brand new show, are heading to the 2020 St Ives September Festival.
Billed as “Britain’s greatest cabaret trio”, Dillie Keane, Adèle Anderson and Liza Pulman are the latest additions to the Festival’s star-studded Guildhall line-up. Fascinating Aïda returned this year and are currently engaged in their 42-venue Spring Tour before announcing an Autumn Tour which will include their visit to St Ives.
For nearly four decades from their first album Sweet FA in 1984, through the lates 90s show It, Wit, Don’t Give A S**t Girls to the 2012 smash-hit tour Cheap Flights, Fascinating Aïda have captured the political and social fixations of our times. They are promising that their new show will feature “a selection of old favourites, songs you haven’t heard before and some you wish you’d never heard in the first place!”
The group has played in hundreds of theatres in the UK and Ireland, with London seasons at the Donmar Warehouse, Lyric Hammersmith, Piccadilly, Vaudeville, Garrick, Apollo and Comedy theatres and the Theatre Royal, Haymarket. They have toured Australia three times, including a month at the Sydney Opera House, and also played New Zealand, San Francisco, New York, Berlin, Kenya, South Africa and Singapore. They have made numerous television appearances and radio recordings, released seven CDs, three DVDs, two videos, an autobiography and a songbook, and have also been nominated for several awards including the Olivier and New York Drama Desk three times each, the Perrier and in 2013 they won Best Musical Act in the London Cabaret Awards.
Despite being around since before the birth of the internet, Fascinating Aida have clocked up more than 25 million YouTube and Facebook hits for Cheap Flights and their incredibly rude Christmas song and they are expected to sell out St Ives Guildhall in quick time.
