Top of the Pops to return as a musical
Top of the Pops is to make a return - to the stage, that is.
The classic music TV show has been off the screens around the UK for a number of years now, with calls for its return a regular occurrence.
The BBC reports that a new stage musical is to launch in the UK later this year and will tour through to 2013.
It will be made by the people behind the Michael Jackson tribute stage show Thriller and it is set to focus on the show's period between the 1970s and 1990s.
Producer Derek Nicol said he is looking forward to delving into Top of the Pops history on show. He said:
"Like most people I have nothing but fantastic memories of Top of the Pops. I look forward to delivering a great live show...reflecting the great music that became the soundtrack to many of our lives."
