Dave Stewart Working on Eurythmics Musical?
Dave Stewart of Eurythmics, brought GHOST to Broadway earlier this year after writing a score for the stage adaptation with Glen Ballard. Now, he's playing with the idea of bringing some of his most popular tunes to a stage musical. He told Reuters: 'Annie [Lennox] and I wrote so many songs together, and they keep popping up in different places, and I have this idea of putting them all together in a theatrical piece in the not too distant future.'

Described by Bob Dylan as "a fearless innovator," Dave Stewart has built a repertoire of remarkable songs that have been performed by some of the most influential musicians of our time. In 1999, Dave Stewart, along with his Eurythmics partner, Annie Lennox, was honored with The Lifetime Achievement Award at the Brit Awards after having sold over 75 million albums with hits like Here Comes The Rain Again, Who’s That Girl, Would I Lie To You, Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves (with Aretha Franklin) and Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).
Stewart was recently presented with the Legend in Songwriting award from the City of Hope, and has collaborated, both as a songwriter and producer, with several of today’s biggest stars in music. Stewart recently released Dave Stewart Songbook, Vol. 1, that includes his hits with Tom Petty (Don’t Come Around Here No More), No Doubt (Underneath It All), Mick Jagger (Old Habits Die Hard) which won a Golden Globe for Best Song in the film Alfie and Celine Dion (Taking Chances). In his new capacity as Nokia’s Change Agent, Stewart is charged with leading the Artists Advisory Committee which ensures the artist’s point of view is represented in the “new world.” In conjunction with his company, Weapons of Mass Entertainment, Stewart is poised to rethink, reshape and reinvent music, film, television, books, theatre, new media and eventually the entire creative process.
