An Evening with Sylvester Stallone comes to Manchester, UK

By Webmaster on June 17, 2014 / 2 mins read

Following the huge success of Sly’s appearance at the London Palladium in January, the triple ‘A-list’ superstar, writer, producer and director of almost 90 movies and one of Hollywood’s biggest box office draws is coming to Manchester, UK for another evening of conversation.

The event will take place on the 1st of August 2014 at The Manchester Phones4u Arena and will be constructed in an intimate theatre style with only a limited number of tickets available. This is an incredible opportunity to get up close and personal with one of cinema’s all-time legends!

An Evening with StalloneFrom his breakthrough in Rocky in 1976, to his latest blockbuster movie franchise, The Expendables, Stallone is regarded as one of the most popular movie stars of all time. In this exclusive event, Mr Stallone will share private moments and insights from his outstanding career as he is interviewed on stage by popular Hollywood Journalist Sandro Monetti, flown in from the states to host the evening.

Sylvester Stallone has established 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. 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 Rambo: First Blood. His most ambitious project, the action thriller The Expendables, which he wrote, directed and starred in, saw him hire 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 US box office, making Stallone the only actor in Hollywood history to open a number one film across five decades.

This special evening will be graced with high quality entertainment on stage and backstage, including an exclusive 90 min interview with Stallone followed by a chance for the audience to put questions to the superstar. There will be chances on the evening to win prize draws which include a Stallone meet and greet and professional photo + high quality framed, signed Stallone memorabilia.

This is the ONLY event in the UK, so it is advised to book quickly to avoid disappointment. Click on the image above or follow this link to buy tickets:

    I had to chime in and add to the love. That first kill with the .50 calliber, where he sthoos the guy a foot from the barrel, is just pure poetry. And I have an enormous affection for the whole "Aging Gunslinger Takes Up Arms One Last Time"/"You Ain't Gonna Build No Reputation Offa Me, Youngster" genre. FIRST BLOOD is one of my very favorite action movies and holds about as much rewatch value for me as any film I can name. Dennehy, Caruso back when it seemed he was destined for a career as an interesting character actor, Crenna leaving teeth marks on every last inch of scenery ("He can EAT things that'dmakeabillygoat PUKE!!!), etc.I keep wanting to make myself look smart by saying my most anticipated film of the year is something I read about in Film Comment's coverage of the Berlinale, but I am positively giddy at the prospect of THE EXPENDABLES.

    I did the Event last Friday in Manchester. Thank you very much Sly for this Evening and for the Photo Opportunity. Hope you do it again, i will be there. Rocky Musical: I am from Germany and we were so proud that you open this in our country. Now we heard from the US that people there don't like it. How can that be ? The show is phänomenal. What Fans discuss in the german Internet ist: Changing the commercial to Love wins with the new Foto was a big mistake. Nobody unterstand what does that mean and it doesn't relate to the original Rocky und you very well. Stallone-Rocky-Fight from the heart and the picture of adrian was much much more better. Hope that help a little bit und hope the Musical Projekt will continue. All the best. Thanks again. Ralf

    Just bought my VIP platinum ticket, I know it was expensive but worth every penny as I can finally meet my idol and take photo with him. Can't wait! I went to the London show which was great, but this is awesome as getting to meet sly and ask a question is going to be unbelievable, once in a lifetime opportunity!

  • Steven McArdleJune 17, 2014

    I've managed to get VIP tickets for this unbelievable opportunity - never thought this would happen to me in my lifetime. Hasn't even sunk in. A million to one chance.
