The Hoff “Can’t Wait” to Return to Blackpool

Wednesday, 25th March 2015

US star David Hasselhoff says he can’t wait to come back to Blackpool ahead of his World Premiere show Last Night A DJ Saved My Life.

It was revealed last month that the Blackpool Opera House is to host the World Premiere of the brand new musical starring the Hoff, as he is known to millions of fans across the world, in October.

And speaking from LA the Hoff said he is looking forward to returning to the UK seaside resort and making some new friends.

He said: “I love Blackpool, last time I was there we had a wild day at the Pleasure Beach. I can't wait to come back. Often I am only in one place for a short time, but I will be in town for a few weeks and look forward to making some friends.

“I know Blackpool is the holiday entertainment capital of the UK and I know folks will love our show, 'Last Night A DJ Saved My Life'. It's full of hit songs, big laughs and great memories and I'd say that just about sums up what Blackpool is all about too."

The Hoff will lead the cast in the World Premiere when it opens in Blackpool on October 17. Tickets are on sale now.

From the creators of ‘Dreamboats and Petticoats’ and ‘Boogie Nights’ comes a heart- warming and hilarious story promising to be the party night of the year.

The Hoff plays an extrovert, party going, DJ and night club owner on the party isle of Ibiza at the start of the 90’s. His teenage daughter arrives to stay for the summer and he has to cope with being a single parent to a girl who wants to meet boys and live the party life. Suddenly his motto is “do as I say, not as I did!”

‘Ride on Time’, back to a ‘Saturday Night’ in the 90’s ‘When Things Can Only Get Better’, and ‘The Only Way Was Up. Girls wanted to ‘Spice Up Their Life’, Robbie Williams-types wanted to love these ‘Angels’ and friends promised ‘I’ll Be There For You’. A string of hits from Mariah Carey’s ‘Hero’ to M.C.Hammer’s ‘Can’t Touch This’, underscore a fast and funny story that will register with young and old when mobile phones were the size of house bricks, Nintendo Gameboy was the ‘in’ thing and we discovered Windows 95! We watched Beverley Hills 90210, not to mention The Hoff in ‘Baywatch’. Titanic the movie was released and youngsters loved Rugrats and Power Rangers, Michael Jackson married Lisa-Marie Presley, OJ took a drive and Monica Lewinsky and Lorena Bobbit hit the headlines!

Michael Williams, Managing Director of Blackpool’s Winter Gardens, said the show promises to be a fantastic night out for all.

He said: “This is a great show for the Opera House and Blackpool and I have every confidence it will be incredibly popular.

“Clearly the Hoff is looking forward to spending some time in Blackpool again and we’re looking forward to welcoming him, his fans and lovers of music when the show begins.

“It’s fantastic to have a World Premiere at the Blackpool Opera House and when you couple that with the fact it is starring someone as iconic as the Hoff it is sure to be a big hit.”

The World Premiere of Last Night a DJ Saved My Life is on Friday October 16. It will then run from Saturday 17 to Sunday November 1.

Tickets for Last Night a DJ Saved My Life are on sale now and are available from www.wintergardensblackpool.co.uk
