Wicked is coming to Liverpool Empire in 2024 on UK tour: when, how to get tickets and full tour dates

 Here’s everything you need to know about award-winning musical Wicked ahead of their visit in Liverpool in 2024.

Wicked will embark on a year-long UK tour from 2023 to 2025, which will include a month stop in Liverpool. According to WhatsOnStage, the multi-award-winning musical will visit 10 cities, beginning in Edinburgh in December next year and ending in Manchester in January 2025.

Based on Gregory Maguire’s classic novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, Wicked tells the story of two unlikely university friends in the land of Oz, one destined to become Glinda The Good and the other, the Wicked Witch of the West.  Joe Mantello directs and Wayne Cilento choreographs the musical, which has a soundtrack by Stephen Schwartz and a book by Winnie Holzman.

The musical is currently in its 17th year in the West End, where 11 million people have seen it. The new tour will also coincide with the filming and production of the two-part Wicked movie, with the big-screen versions of the performance planned to premiere in 2024 and 2025.
