London’s CHESS Concerts selling extremely well

If you fancy getting along to Kensington to see Josh Groban, Idina Menzel, Adam Pascal and Kerry Ellis (along with a choir of over a hundred voices and a full orchestra), then time is running out.

The arena, stalls, loggia boxes, grand tier and second tier are all now SOLD OUT on both nights, leaving just  a few seats in the circle available.

The venue is dark on the 14th May, by the way. There couldn’t be a third night, could there?


  • I am really looking forward to this concert and only hope that if there are any special appearances by the composers, that they will consider both nights – especially as 13th was made available first (and that’s when I’m going!). I agree with many who say that Chess works better as a concert and nearly 24 years after seeing the first Chess concert at The Barbican, I can’t wait to experience the magic all over again.

  • I, too, hope that any appearance by Tim Rice (scheduled to "introduce" the performance) and/or Benny & Bjorn happens on both evenings! Being a huge Abba and Chess fan, and too young to have experienced it on stage during its original run, I eagerly bought tickets when they first went on sale – so let’s hope the additional date (ironically, the first scheduled performance) isn’t the one that features an impromptu appearance by Benny & Bjorn! I wonder also how likely it is that either Agnetha or Frida will make an appearance – now, that would be amazing!
