ONLY MEN ALOUD plus special guests

Only Men Aloud have been delighting audiences around the world for over twenty years. They

were formed in the year 2000, with the hope they could inject some new life and blood into

the Welsh Male Choir tradition.

The men have become well known for their strong vocals and their varied and eclectic

repertoire. A typical OMA concert will feature many different styles of music. Welsh hymns

and folksongs, Opera and Music Theatre all the way to Swing, Acapella & Pop music.

Fourteen years ago, they were named BBC One’s Last Choir Standing, and this led to an album

deal with Universal Records. In 2010, they won a Classical Brit Award for Best Album of the

Year. They have toured every year since winning the show, all around the world and have

worldwide record sales of over 300,000.

Over the years, the hugely popular group has built up a strong fan base across the country

and were honoured to be asked to sing at the London 2012 Opening Ceremony at the very

moment the Olympic Flame was lit. This performance was broadcast to an estimated global

TV audience of 900 million people.

OMA have given many memorable performances, with numerous appearances at outdoor

festivals and proms. They have performed twice at The Royal Variety Performance, been seen

on numerous television programmes and are familiar faces at sporting events; they sang at

the opening ceremony of the Ryder Cup in 2010 and the Ashes in 2015. In 2014, they

undertook a highly successful tour of the USA including performances at the famous Ravinia

Festival in Chicago and the North American Festival of Wales in Minneapolis.

OMA have now recorded six studio albums and are making plans for a seventh. They continue

their busy touring and concert schedule, right across the UK, Europe and beyond. Recent

notable engagements have included performing at The UEFA Champions League Final

Celebrations in Cardiff, and a trip to Mumbai in India for the group’s first appearance in Asia.

The end of 2018 saw them heading out on the road for their Decade Tour, culminating in an

incredible Gala Concert in Cardiff to celebrate the ten years since winning Last Choir Standing.

Over the last couple of years, they have performed in Disneyland Paris, toured around the UK

with the World’s best brass band The Cory Band, held their own headline show in Cardiff

Castle and shared the stage with the legend Diana Ross who they supported on her World Tour.
