Review: Kevin Wilson at Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury

Shrewsbury | News | Published:

Irreverent Australian comedian Kevin 'Bloody' Wilson returned to Shrewsbury last night for a sell-out show at the town's Theatre Severn.

Political correctness was left at the door as the performer, whose act includes a range of comedy musical numbers, came to town for what has been billed as his farewell concert tour in the UK and Ireland.

It was his first time back in Shrewsbury for three years, having previously performed at the Theatre Severn in autumn 2009 shortly after it opened.

Craig Reeves, marketing officer for Theatre Severn, said Wilson had proved to be a popular draw with his fans in Shropshire, with the show selling out well in advance.

Over his 25-year career, the international star has released more than 20 albums, selling over four million copies of them across the globe.

Many of his songs have also become major YouTube hits, with the likes of I Wanna Be A Builder When I Grow Up and Dilligaf attracting hundreds of thousands of views.

And his fans in Shrewsbury lapped up last night's performance, with many taking to his official Facebook page after the show to give their thumbs-up to the concert.

Wilson's UK tour continues until mid-November, with the comedian due to perform at venues in Manchester, Blackpool, Newcastle and Glasgow in the next few weeks.
