His former WHAM! bandmates gave a beautiful introduction to a musical tribute from Coldplay's Chris Martin.
There's a new musical in town and it's reworking some of our favourite classics! Have a first glimpse...
We do love a good musical here at Smooth and the latest one to hit the West End features the music of one of our favourite songwriters.
'Close To You: Burt Reimagined' features classics like 'Say A Little Prayer', 'Anyone Who Had A Heart' and 'Alfie' reworked by Canadian songwriter Kyle Riabko.
Riabko has opened for artists such as B.B. King and James Brown, and brings a contemporary touch to Burt Bacharach's much-loved songs.
The show will open at London's Criterion Theatre on 3rd October 2015.
