Elton John, Marc Bolan, One Direction, Robbie Williams, Paul Weller, Oasis and UB40 have all performed on stage at the Watford Colosseum.

World renowed for its acoustic qualities, the theatre continues to add to the list of first class performers with its autumn programme.

This includes From The Jam in October, featuring original The Jam members Bruce Foxton and Russell Hastings; The Blockheads in October; Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra in November; and The Waterboys in December.

Tenor Russell Watson appears in November with a stunning string quartet and a local choir.

In the same month the Philharmonia Orchestra celebrates the music of the best big screen icons with Screen Heroes including Indiana Jones, James Bond, Superman, Harry Potter, The Avengers, Pirates of the Caribbean, Sherlock Holmes and Mission Impossible.

Legendary American songwriter, guitarist and pianist Nils Lofgren appears in November and, as part of their 10th anniversary reunion tour, G4 will be performing in September.

Frontman Jonathan Ansell said: “It’s incredibly exciting to be going back on the road with the boys for the first time in a number of years. Audiences can expect the classic G4 treatment, lots of classic songs gvien the traditional G4 twist, and there’ll definitely be a surprise or two along the way!”

Pre-show dining is available for this show.

Tickets cost from £27.50 and there are also meet and greet tickets for £75.
