Diversity head for BIC on Christmas tour
After selling over 60,000 tickets at 27 shows across the country, and receiving rave reviews from both critics and fans alike, Diversity are bringing back their critically acclaimed Diversitoys tour at Christmas. Their new 13-date tour involves more jaw dropping routines from the group and includes state-of-the-art lighting and screens plus music as diverse as their performances. The show boasts action figures, Ninja style break-dancers, martial arts experts, a dancing robot, a bionic boy, spies, a contortionist, a beat boxer. This special Christmas edition of the show will feature even more surprises and promises to be the perfect family entertainment spectacle this Christmas.
Ashley Banjo, the group’s leader and choreographer has been dancing since he was 5 years old. Routines, incorporating several genres of music from classical to hip-hop won the hearts of the nation in May 2009, when Diversity, against all the odds and the phenomenon that was Susan Boyle, won Britain’s Got Talent. Since then they have performed in front of the Queen, at the Royal Variety performance, the Prime Minister at 10 Downing Street, and star in the new smash-hit movie StreetDance 3D. They were even invited to join Michael Jackson for the ill-fated “This Is It” shows before his untimely death.
Ashley says: "We have been blown away by the reaction we received from our first tour. It has been amazing. We are really looking forward to going back out there with this show at Christmas and delivering even more surprises. I hope it will be an evening that people will never forget.”
