A lot of nice photos, videos and clips became available after this morning’s Martin’s apperance in BBC Radio 2 “The Chris Evans Breakfast show” in which both Martin and Tamsin Greig – his co-star in Labour of Love – talked about the play and enjoyed a live performance by The Fizz which included some dancing.
Some photos came from Social Media, click on the photos to access larger versions:
Even a lucky fan:
Then there were some uploads from the programme’s website featuring Martin and Tamsin, click on the photos to go to the Gallery and find larger versions:
There are several clips from the show. You can listen and watch them here. If you want to listen to the entire show (Martin and Tamsin appears during the last hour aproximately, i’d say 8:30 am considering the show starts at 6:30), you can do so from the BBC website here but only for 29 days. There’s no country restrictions for this. But we’ve uploaded the entire audio here (important: 420mb m4a file).
As if that’s NOT enough, a band called The Fizz played some songs during the show and for their last performance they played their own cover of DNCE’s Cake By The Ocean. Luckily, this performance during the show has a video and you can watch them on the BBC website here, or you can also download the video if you want (we’ve uploaded it for you, it’s an HQ 37mb mp4 file). But I’m sure you want a little preview, don’t you?
Last but definitely not least, we have some UHQ photos of Martin arriving and leaving BBC’s studios at Wogan House. We’ll make a separe post for that later! So watch this space!
As you probably know by now, when Labour of Love was announced they said that they were going to be offering 20000 tickets at £10, sponsored by more expensive tickets (that range from £40ish, £60is and £90ish). They probably – as it usually happens in plays – they didn’t released all of them at once and today they are announcing that more £10 tickets are available to be purchased. So if you were having doubts, go ahead and try to get yours now!
We’ve updated our Labour of Love gallery with glorious UHQ photos to replace the previous ones that appeared via What’s On Stage. Go check them out!
Another little gem was found by our very kind visitor S. Want to see? Click on the photo to view a larger version from our Gallery:
Can you spot Martin?
This photo comes from Mervyn Stutter’s website who was the writer and one of the stars of the BBC Radio 4 show called “Getting Nowhere Fast“. Martin played the character of Neville Dilkes during series 1. Unfortunately, series 1 is not available to be played from BBC. But if you have a link to it, it would be lovely if you could share it with all of us. Just send us a message through our contact form.
Tomorrow, Friday 22nd September, Martin and Tamsin – the two stars of Labour of Love – will be on BBC Radio 2 tomorrow at The Chris Evans Breakfast Show which airs from 6:30 to 9:30, discussing the new play that is less than a week from opening the previews. You can listen to it live on BBC Radio 2 website. Or you can catch it later from the programme’s website (linked before). We will be publishing the clip as soon as posible after it’s available.
The play is closer each day. Michael Grandage Company – one of the companies behind Labour of Love – published some stories showing the signs already up at the Noël Coward Theatre. EXCITING.
Our kind visitor S told us about this 2005 photo shoot Martin did for a Marks & Spencer ad campaign called “My Autograph”. This photoshoot by photographer David Bailey included not just Martin but other actors like Bob Mortimer and Jimmy Carr. We’ve added a better quality version in our gallery so go check it out! He definitely needs to do more of these, what do you think? Let us know.
According to Yolanda Ramke, writer of Cargo, the tickets for the premiere at the Adelaide Film Festival are sold out!
If you’re in Adelaide and you’re interested, there are still some tickets left for the second screening and Q&A session on October 7th. You can buy them here.
