CDC Events and Manchester Albert Hall are bringing to life the iconic soundtrack from the even more iconic TV drama Queer As Folk.

Still Doin It Live features some of the show’s best songs, as interpreted by the Manchester Camerata’s 28-piece orchestra, plus star guests including Faye Tozer from Steps.

Russell T. Davies’ phenomenal Queer As Folk followed the lives of Stuart, Vince and Nathan in Manchester’s Gay Village sparked debate, brought rimming to the popular consciousness and inspired a slew of shows about LGBT people at the turn of the Millennium (including a US remake).

The soundtrack included hits such as’I Am What I Am’, ‘Love Pains’, ‘Santa Maria’ and ‘Haven’t You Heard’. Writer Rob Ellis (writer of comedy Fetish Knights) brings the show to life – which promises to examine where some of the characters are now, as well as the popular music that made the show so much fun.

‘As Russel T Davies’ ground-breaking and iconic show Queer As Folk marks its 20th anniversary – it’s an honour to be producing the ultimate birthday party alongside Manchester Camerata, a superb team and a glittering list of guest star performers. As with the TV show, audiences should expect shocks and surprises in abundance!’ said Ellis.

Tickets are now on sale, with the show performance on Friday 22 February 2019, at the Manchester Albert Hall.
