TOTP to hit the stage

Many music instrument players may well have first been inspired to try the piano, guitar - or whatever their instrument of choice may be - by watching BBC favourite Top of the Pops.

Many music instrument players may well have first been inspired to try the piano, guitar - or whatever their instrument of choice may be - by watching BBC favourite Top of the Pops.

And although the music show no longer appears on television in the way that it once did, it is about to be presented as a stage version, which will include clips from the programme, it has been revealed.

Eastbourne will see the new show - called Top of the Pops Live - first next year, and then it will set out on a tour.

Many famous pop stars appeared on the TV version of the show, which famously concluded with a list of the top ten singles, and a performance of that week's number one. The Spice Girls, Take That, Oasis, Pulp and The Smiths are just a tiny collection of the musical stars who took to its stage.

The same people who were responsible for Thriller – a musical themed around Michael Jackson – are going to be responsible for the show's reimagining on the stage.
