Owner description: The biggest show in Blackpool - and the longest running show of it's type in the country!! Fantastic production worthy of the West End or Las Vegas, and a super star line up in 2015 - Michael Jackson, Lionel Richie, Cher, Elton John, Freddie Mercury, Tina Turner, Gary Barlow, Robbie Williams, Meat Loaf and Lady Gaga!! Not forgetting the brilliant comedian Tom Bright and guest vocals from Leanne Fury - a fantastic night's entertainment, live musicians, stunning dancers, awesome production.

Thanks for your review, Alan - we have now moved to the beautiful Sands Venue on the promenade, and we hope you'll come back to see us. This year we have a star studded line up from June 13th - November 2nd of Adele, Neil Diamond, Freddie Mercury, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, the Blue Brothers, Elton John and Robbie Williams, also with comedy compere Tom Bright and the fantastic Leanne Fury on guest vocals. We hope you'll enjoy the new venue, near the Blackpool Tower, just a little across from the Comedy Carpet. Have a great day and thanks for commenting!

“Very entertaining night out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

We booked this at the Sands centre and were glad we did.

Even though it was opening night at the new venue, the acts were all excellent - particularly Elvis.

The tables are set out so that you are seated with other couples - which wasn't explained at the door when we booked. It all seemed a bit muddled and the staff did not seem to be very well prepared for customers who were expecting seating on their own.

Still, it was opening night, and I'm sure it's all fine now.

Not sure I would bother with the food though - very basic menu.

“Great Show, Great Location.....but........”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

We had a great night at the Sands watching the Legends show. We were welcomed on arrival and seated on the general floor as the "fine dining" seats were all taken.

The show was excellent...the artists (Elton, Robbie, Elvis & Freddie) were amazing. If you don't enjoy the show your pulse must have stopped.

...BUT...the seating we had only offered basket meals or various platters. The food was poorly presented and an absolute rip off. Very poor quality and poor value for money. We didn't even get given condiments or knives and forks. Also, if you are on the general floor area, your wine glasses will be plastic, though the fine dining area have proper glasses.

My advice is go and see a great show, but if seated in the general seating area, give the food a miss.

Dear Pete,

Thanks so much for attending the show at Easter at The Sands- our first three nights in a brand new venue after 15 years!

I'm so pleased you enjoyed the show, the cast and crew worked hard to deliver an experience fit for this beautiful room and the reports have been magnificent.

I am sorry you didn't enjoy the food experience - we feed back all comments about the service and the food to the lovely Sands venue staff who are very keen to get responses from the customer.

Once again, thank you for your rating of the show and we look forward to you returning soon!

Kind regards
Richard

“Wow, what a show!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Lovely plush place and excellent show. A warm welcome on arrival & shown to our seats. I would not hesitate to recommend anyone going to see the shows here if they are anything like the one we saw (Robbie, Elton, Freddie Mercury & a very excellent Elvis).
