  • Featuring a brilliant LIVE BAND and backing singers – this show absolutely blows you away with the recreation of the sounds and musicality of one of the all time soul greats

  • After hearing Harry Cambridge sing as Luther Vandross, they just knew that they had to produce a show around him to bring Luther back to the masses!

More Information

  • What is the Seating Plan / Arrangements?

    Viva Blackpool - 2022 Seating PlanYour seats are reserved and guaranteed for the show.

    Our seating plan is a mix of table sizes with tables of 2,4 and 6 and 12 people.

    We have different tiers of seating which are represented by different coloured dots (seats) on the plan. Our main room shows have ‘Premier’, ‘Standard’ and brand new for 2022 are our ‘VIP Premier Tall Table’ seating areas

    No need to get up to the bar, or wait in queues as there’s waiter service throughout the night serving drinks and snacks

    You can make specific seating requests if you want (i.e. if you don’t want to sit too near to the front!). You can either select your own seat online, or make the request to the box office operative when booking

  • Can I get tickets just for the show?

    Yes. Tickets for our resident and visiting shows are all for a reserved seat for the show only.

    There are various upgrade options available for most shows after you have selected your seats/show ticket type (Adult/Junior etc.) with options to add a dining package, and pre-order drinks options etc.

    Whilst we recommend dining with us to get the complete ‘Viva experience’, you can opt to come just for the show by selecting a ‘Show Only’ ticket which is a reserved seat for the show.

  • Does Viva cater for groups?

    All inclusive drinks deal

    We LOVE groups.

    Viva is a perfect destination for a party, or a group. With different table sizes (2s, 4s, 6s, 10s and 12s) and a flexible layout meaning we can add tables together, or seat in the same area of the room – we can cater for any private party requirement within our big show atmosphere.

    When booking dining as a group, we’re likely to need your menu options before your visit (for groups of 6 or more people.)
