One Direction may have gone on to become the biggest band in the world ever (so proud) but they weren’t that popular back in 2010 as they didn’t manage to win The X Factor. Oh no, it was Matt Cardle that took the crown that year and now he’s taken a pause on releasing music to star in musical Memphis alongside fellow popstar Beverley Knight.
Who wants some photos of Matt in action on stage?
Inspired by true events from the underground dance clubs of 1950s Memphis, Tennessee, Memphis: The Musical follows the fame and forbidden love of a radio DJ (that’s Matt) who wants to change the world and a club singer who is ready for her big break (and that’s Bev).
And if you think that looks amazing (you’re right) then you can buy tickets for Memphis: The Musical at Shaftesbury Theatre, London here.
