Leona Lewis prepares for tour at The Backstage Centre in Purfleet

GLOBAL singing star Leona Lewis spent three days at “The Backstage Centre” in Purfleet last week ahead of her European tour.

Leona became the first superstar to rehearse at the facility as she put the finishing touches to her ‘Glassheart’ tour. The tour opened in Berlin on Monday and will be in the UK next week.

Leona Lewis became a household name after winning the third series of The X Factor in 2006. She has sold over 20 million records worldwide since her debut album, Spirit, which included the best-selling single “Bleeding Love”.

Commenting on The Backstage Centre, production management company SW19 said:

“It was a pleasure to be at The Backstage Centre and we are looking forward to coming back to work in the facility again – we’ll be recommending to everyone we know”.

Gary Sparkes, Technical Consultant at The Backstage Centre, said:

“It’s been great to have Leona and her team working at The Backstage Centre. It’s always been our goal to attract and accommodate world-famous acts as they prepare for large scale productions.

“The Centre has only been in operation since late 2012 and already we are building a reputation as one of the premier venues for rehearsal and training in the UK.

This is testament to the capabilities we have at The Backstage Centre, and it also bodes well for our wider aims. Our ability to attract acts like Leona Lewis is central to our vision of The Backstage Centre as a place where young people aspiring to enter the industry can train in the same space as world-class professionals”.
