A star of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing – The Professionals (UK tour), several West End Productions, and concerts, including GhostTop Hat the MusicalThe Classic Rock Show and Women On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown, we are thrilled to welcome Ricardo into our concert production of An Evening of Queen this Friday and Saturday.
