The song ‘Mr Brightside’ is still in the charts after 16 years. How did it end up like this? An investigation with karaoke, lip syncing and absolute bangers.
Tim and Hannah come across a viral video of an Irish bar singing ‘Mr Brightside’ to their recently departed friend. Reading online comments they uncover a series of stories of incredible people who are all celebrated by those around them – all united by one song. Tim, Hannah and the audience conduct an investigation into the chart-busting phenomena, exploring how this song touched the world and became an anthem for millions. Award-winning company Shepard Tone celebrate the importance and strength of community and give their audience an unashamedly good night out in the process.
