Hugh Maynard, currently starring as John in Miss Saigon at the Prince Edward Theatre, is to mark the release of his eagerly awaited solo debut album Hugh Maynard – Something Inside So Strong, with an intimate concert supported by a four-piece band.
As well as performing songs from the album, a vibrant collection of rock, soul and musical theatre numbers, Maynard will be joined on stage at the London Hippdrome on Wednesday 25 March by two very special guest stars – his acclaimed, award-winning Miss Saigon co-stars, Kwang-Ho Hong and Rachelle Ann Go.
Hugh Maynard – Something Inside So Strong gives an insight into Maynard’s range and eclectic musical taste. Key tracks include Marvin Gaye’s ‘Let’s Get It On’, John Farnham’s ‘You’re The Voice’, Seal’s ‘Kiss From a Rose’ and his own showstopping anthem ‘Bui Doi’ from Miss Saigon.
The album will be available the same day at the Prince Edward Theatre, Dress Circle Records and via Hugh Maynard’s official website (www.hugh-maynard.com). A digital version will be available to download on iTunes and Google Play.
Further information and events will be released on Hugh Maynard’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/OfficialHughMaynard).
Maynard said: “I have dedicated this album to the people who have continued to love and support me. It is amazing what you can achieve when people have belief in you.”
