Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak and the government measures implemented to limit its spread, the Diversity 2021 tour has been postponed. The rearranged tour will instead take place in 2022. Customers are advised to keep hold of their tickets as they will be valid for the rescheduled dates.
It’s with a heavy heart and great disappointment that we have to announce that the Connected Tour has been rescheduled. It’s just not possible to go ahead with the dates starting in the Spring 2021. The health of everybody; fans, stage crew, performers & venue staff is what is most important and has had to take precedence.
Everyone has been working tirelessly behind the scenes and the tour will move to 2022, we’re gutted we just couldn’t make things work any sooner. It’s the longest tour we’ve ever undertaken and we want it to be the best possible experience for you all.
Thank you for your understanding, these are truly extraordinary times. We can’t wait to see you all as soon as its safe and possible to do so, in the meantime stay safe and take care of each other. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
DIVERSITY Presents ‘CONNECTED’ CREATED BY ASHLEY BANJO
WATCH DIVERSITY’S PERFORMANCE FROM BRITAIN’S GOT TALENT HERE
After nine sell out UK and Irish tours, over 600,000 tickets sold, and countless television and live performances Diversity have announced one of their biggest tours to date including a date at Waterfront Hall, Belfast and a matinee show at 3Arena in June 2021.
Last year marked 10 years since Diversity won the third series of Britain’s Got Talent. Over the past 10 years thanks to the overwhelming support of their fans they have continued to wow audiences around the world with their innovative live tours and performances. They celebrated this incredible achievement with a critically acclaimed sell out 48 show tour, Born Ready.
This tour is set to be even bigger, and as Diversity promised their fans on the Born Ready tour, they will continue the legacy of Diversity and never let anyone tell them they cannot achieve something. To take them into the new decade of Diversity, Ashley has created a new show, ‘Connected’, which centres around the world of social media, the internet, and the digital era we now live in, but more importantly how this connects us all.
Creator and choreographer Ashley Banjo said of the forthcoming tour, “Every year that goes by, and every time we get to create a new touring show, I cannot believe we are still lucky enough to get to do this. But even after all this time, we are still growing, and this new decade and new chapter for Diversity is sure to be something even more special than the last. I truly do believe that we are all connected in more ways than one and I cannot wait to bring this to life on stage.”
Diversity are also certified TV superstars. Ashley Banjo recently returned to Britain’s Got Talent as a guest judge in place of Simon Cowell with Diversity giving an extremely powerful and emotive performance at the semi-final – watch it here.
Ashley was also a judge on Dancing on Ice which saw fellow Diversity member Perri Kiely finish runner up. Ashley also hosted, choreographed and starred in the BAFTA nominated The Real Full Monty (2017-2019) and International Emmy Award, Broadcast Award, and Royal Television Society award winning The Real Full Monty: Ladies Night (2018) and (2019). Ashley’s show Flirty Dancing on Channel 4 completed it second hit series last December.
Fellow Diversity member Jordan Banjo returned to host the second series of BBC 1’s primetime and BAFTA nominated show The Greatest Dancer earlier this year. Jordan and Perri are also part of breakfast radio royalty, presenting Kiss Breakfast every weekday following the launch of the new show last month.
Diversity continue to inspire the next generation of dancers and cannot wait to launch their online dance classes 20DV.
