Diversity announce 2012 arena dates - tickets available now
After selling out more than 50 dates in 2010, Britain's Got Talent-winning urban dance troupe Diversity are hitting the road again in 2012.
Say what you like about Britain's Got Talent, and most do, but after all the 'journeys' are over, the plucky underdogs dispatched and the two-a-penny standing ovations finished, the winner does, usually, have at least one talent worth boasting about.
In 2009, Susan Boyle moved the BGT studio audience to tears with the shock revelation that unattractive people can sing, but it still wasn't enough to secure the series victory, with Diversity being named winners after a public vote. Their final performance was called 'genius' by judge and famous person Amanda Holden, and there can be no higher praise than that.
But Diversity were serious about their art and with the choreography of their lead performer Ashley Banjo (his real name) and his mother's management to fall back on, Diversity managed a couple of shows in the latter half of 2009 before selling out those 50 or so dates the following year.
In the last year, Ashley Banjo has been a judge on Sky One's 'Got to Dance' and also appeared in British dance flick 'StreetDance 3D', along with fellow BGT winner George Sampson. A sequel is mooted.
Confident that their popularity will not have waned, Diversity are performing at some of the nation's biggest indoor arenas in 2012. The tour starts at Glasgow's SECC on 29th March 2012 and takes in Cardiff's Motorpoint Arena, the MEN Arena and the O2, before the final date at the Liverpool Echo Arena on 11th April.
Tickets are available now, prices starting at £21.50 (£23.50 for the O2).
