An Evening with Stallone

By Webmaster on December 21, 2013 / 2 mins read

Sylvester Stallone is set to enthral, enlighten and entertain the UK at a unique ‘An Evening With’ event at the world famous London Palladium (previously announced at Central Hall Westminster) on Saturday, 11th January 2014.

This un-missable event is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see one of the world’s biggest stars. The event is presented by leading entertainment impresario and event organiser Rocco Buonvino and entrepreneur Joe Ricotta.

An Evening with Stallone at the PalladiumSylvester Stallone, who is famed for his roles in such cult classics as Rocky, Rambo, Demolition Man and The Expendables, will treat the audience to an intimate evening of anecdotes about his illustrious career, private insights from his life as one of the world’s most admired screen idols as well as partaking in a special question and answer session with audience members.

Sylvester Stallone rose to worldwide recognition as an actor, writer and director since he played the title role in his own screenplay of Rocky, which won the Academy Award for Best Picture and was nominated for a staggering 10 Oscars. Rocky grew to a franchise of five sequels and in 2006 Stallone concluded the series with Rocky Balboa, a critical and audience success which resolutely confirmed both Stallone and Rocky as iconic cultural symbols. In more recent times, Stallone wrote, directed and starred in Rambo, which continued the saga of Vietnam vet John Rambo 25 years after the debut of First Blood.

Stallone then released his most ambitious project, the action thriller The Expendables, which he wrote, directed and starred in, and for which he hired an all star action cast including Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, Jet Li, Eric Roberts, Dolph Lungren and Steve Austin – as well as Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. It opened at number one at the Box Office – making Stallone the only actor in Hollywood history to open a number one film across five decades.

Seen as one of Hollywood’s most iconic stars, Sylvester Stallone will be seen at Christmas 2013 starring in Grudge Match with Robert DeNiro. In March, 2014, Rocky the Musical will open at The Winter Garden on Broadway. The musical is based on the original film written by Sylvester Stallone with music by Stephen Flaherty and Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens.

‘An Evening with Stallone’ is undoubtedly an exceptional occasion to catch an icon in the flesh.

    Happy Birthday! Unlike most of these posts, I will not be attending any of your appearances. I teach English to the Burmese, Chin, refugees as well as the Vietnamese, Brazilians, Chinese, about ten different cultures. And I want to say, Thank you for your 'Rambo' movie. When the Chin toddlers would use the restroom facilitates, they put their feet on the seat and swatted. They were amazed when they saw the toilet flush. Then I see high school students refusing to stand for the, Pledge of Allegiance. And because of their Civil Rights, they don't have to. I tell them to spend a week in Burma. I tell them to watch, 'Rambo'! I read that you have found Jesus. I believe he has always been with you. Thank you again for all your hard work and perseverance and have a wonderful birthday.

    I met my Idol Sylvester Stallone at comic-con in NYC on October 13, 2013 this year, and it was amazing. Mr. Stallone, I am sorry for crying, but it was truly a dream come true to meet you. You have been my idol since I was a child, and never in a million years did I think I would ever meet you. You are a role model to me, and an iconic figure that no one comes close to. You have truly been an inspiration for me throughout all these years, and you've been my inspiration to keep pulling forward despite the obstacles that might come one's way. From the bottom of my heart, Thank you !!!!

  • Christiane SchärlJanuary 25, 2014

    I thank god, that i`ve could say to him, that he`s THE SEXIEST MAN ALIVE!!!!! I was in London, he`s the most charismatic man, i`ve ever seen, in his tailor-made suit he can go for a model, God bless him!

  • Danielle FraustoJanuary 20, 2014

    Sly, Been your biggest fan for as long as I can remember. I hope & pray one day you have "An Evening With Stallone" in Southern California. I would give anything to attend & hopefully one day meet you. I have "Stallone movie marathons" all the time at my house, it never gets old! XOXOXOX

  • Alan&PaulineJanuary 16, 2014

  • AndyJanuary 14, 2014

    Fantastic evening Mr Stallone! I thoroughly enjoyed your humorous, witty and motivational talk and stories about your career. It was a pleasure and a privilege to be in the audience. Thank you so much for coming to the UK and giving your British fans a wonderful evening. Very best wishes to you and thanks again!

  • Lisa & SageJanuary 13, 2014

    What hasn't already been said!! OMG what a truly amazing evening. Something I'll cherish forever. I don't what you did to me as I cried for the first 5 minutes!! I only hope its not long before you're back in the UK again and that you had a safe trip back. The one thing I would've said to you was don't give up on the comedy side of things but by the look of Grudge Match it has your awesome comic twist in it. I'm begging that I get to meet you one day. Your fan forever....Lisa xxxxxxx

  • MartinJanuary 13, 2014

    Hi Sylvester Thank you so much for doing this event in the UK. I was lucky enough to be there in the second row. You were captivating. So charming, charismatic, natural, funny, inspiring and motivational - just what you were going for I'm sure! Didn't get chance to ask a question but I'd love to know about your mindset on work / family balance when you have so many things going on. Maybe next time. Thanks again for such an inspiring experience and good luck in your future projects. I'll be there supporting you!

    Thank You Sylvester Stallone, For A Truly Fantastic Evening It Was Great Seeing You In Person & Listening To You I've Been A Fan Of Yours For 25 Yrs Now & I had The Pleasure To See You Enter The Building From The Back Entrance It was Great To See My Childhood Hero In Person & Spend A Great Evening In Your Company. I Really Enjoyed Escape Plan & Really Looking Forward To Grudge Match & The Expendables 3

  • Lea DaviesJanuary 12, 2014

    Wow! What a night! After being a fan for nearly 40 years I can't believe I was lucky enough to be there. Sometimes when you've been a fan of someone it can be a disappointment when you see them in the flesh as they cannot live up to the image you've created in your head but this was not the case last night. Mr Stallone is a genuinely and thoroughly nice person and was everything I hoped and more. Jonathan Ross' interviewing was superb and Sly was inspirational. Thank you for a fantastic evening, the only down side is that it's over.

  • Sukhdev BajwaJanuary 12, 2014

    What a great night it was! It was great to see you on stage and talk about your movies and your life! You truly inspired the audience! Thank you so much for taking the time out to see your fans!!

    I recently heard you received Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Is this true, or just a rumor? If true, I rejoice with you. Most important decision of your life!

  • LindaJanuary 1, 2014

  • Paul WheelockDecember 26, 2013

    It is amazing to hear that you received Christ in your heart. I am praying that God does a great work in your heart and shows you how incredible He is. Praying that you find the perfect church to grow in and learn who He is going to make you into. He has more for you than what you have experienced up to now . God bless you in your new life with Him.

  • Lucie K.December 20, 2013

    Hello Mr. Stallone, me and my father ,we are your big fans. We would love to meet you but we live in Czech republic so it is far from London. We like all of your films :-). It is a shame that you can't arrive to our country. Is it possible to get your card with your signature? Best wishes and Merry Xmas for you and whole your family Lucie

  • Zoheir SedehiDecember 20, 2013

    Hi Mr. Stallone, I just want to tell you that I'm 36 years old and I've grown up with your movies. I loved every movie played but my favorite is Rocky. To me Rocky is all about heart, everything he touched came from a good place. Sure he got carried away a little in RockyIII but Rocky V is my favorite. Rocky V suns up everything for me. Sylvester, you're a good guy, you can't be anything but greatness! I wish to get a chance to see one day and pay my respects to you sir!

  • AliceDecember 20, 2013

    What a wonderful idea!!!! I would absolutely LOVE to be there, but the distance is too great. I vote he goes on tour!!! :D I have been the biggest fan FOREVER! Sending happiness and positive vibes your way, Sly!
