Searching for a great gift for Dad this Father's Day? Why not treat him to something special...
As with anyone, your Dad's taste is unique to him. From comedy to drama, or from rock and roll to opera, there's a wide array of incredible shows on offer and one of them will be perfect for your Dad. So, take a look at our top choices and give your Dad a gift to remember.
1. Only Fools and Horses The Musical
If the theme tune of Only Fools and Horses is still burned in your memory from childhood - chances are your Dad will love this gift. Mais ouis, mais ouis, the world may have changed a lot since we first bid a jovial ‘au revoir’ to the Trotters of Peckham, but good ‘ol Del Boy, Rodney and the rest of the gang haven’t changed a bit...
2. The Exorcist
If your Dad was around when the cult classic horror, The Exorcist, hit the screens in the 70s - he'll probably remember the phenomenal mix of fear and excitement that struck the country. The Exorcist live, features the voice of Ian McKellen as the Demon in a spine-tingling new stage production that comes direct from London’s West End.
3. The Book of Mormon
The rather crude but hilarious Book of Morman would be perfect for any Dad with a naughty sense of humour. The show follows a pair of Mormon boys sent on a mission to a place that's a long way from Salt Lake City... Uganda. Encountering people more concerned with famine, poverty, war and AIDS - the task of converting their religion becomes rather difficult. Poking fun at organised religion, the economy and consumerism and even the musical theatre genre - you'll be sure to have Dad laughing all night long.
4. Jimmy Carr
If you often find yourself shaking your head whilst laughing at your Dad's 'terribly funny' jokes - we've matched his humour. Jimmy Carr's new show, appropriately titled 'Terribly Funny', brings us more dry, dark humour and outrageous jokes - perfect for Dad.
5. Susan Boyle
If your Dad has a soft spot for the magnificent sound of Susan Boyle the recent announcement of her new tour will have been much-welcomed news. So, why not go one step further and treat him to tickets?
6. We Will Rock You
Bringing the incredible music of Queen to the theatre stage - the incredible musical by Queen and Ben Elton, We Will Rock You is touring the UK and there's a ticket with your Dad's name on. The show will dazzle the senses in breath-taking style and blow your mind - so don't let Dad miss this musical phenomenon.
7. Rod Stewart
He's a British musical icon and quite possibly the soundtrack to many of your Dad's memories. The wonderful Rod Stewart is touring again in celebration of his 30th studio album Blood Red Roses.
8. Back to the Future The Musical
The 1985 movie and pop culture phenomenon, Back to the Future, is coming to the stage for the first time! Even better, it's by the creators of the original film, Bob Gale and Robert Zemeckis. No explanation is needed as to why this is the ultimate gift for Dad!
9. Ben Elton
Over 30 years ago, Ben Elton exploded onto the scene hosting C4’s groundbreaking Saturday Live. Now, after disappearing for 15 years, the King of modern stand-up is back. Probably much like Dad, Ben is trying and make sense of a world which appears to have gone stark raving mad... As Ben says: 'The last time I toured I was still smarter than my phone. Things have definitely taken a funny turn.'
10. Andrea Bocelli
The world famous Andrea Bocelli has performed for two Popes, four US Presidents and many Royal families, and now he could perhaps perform for your Dad! Having sold over 80 million albums worldwide and even bagged himself a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame - tickets to Andrea Bocelli is a spectacular way to show Dad your appreciation .
