After its record-breaking outdoor run at The Turbine Theatre this Summer, the American tribal love rock musical Hair is back, celebrating sixties counterculture in all its barefoot, long-haired, bell-bottomed, beaded and fringed glory. Hair is coming to the West End's London Palladium for a one-night-only special concert this June!
In this specially produced concert version directed by Arlene Phillips, get ready to groove to an infectiously energetic rock beat with songs like "Aquarius," "Good Morning, Starshine," "Hair," "I Got Life," and "Let The Sun Shine." Exploring ideas of identity, community, global responsibility and peace, Hair remains relevant as ever as it examines what it means to be a young person in a changing world.
