Hello everyone,

What is the difference between those sentences?

*The show is due to start tomorrow at 18:00.

*The show will start tomorrow at 18:00.

In my opinion, there's no difference, isn't it?

Thanks in advance.

*The show is to start at tomorrow at 18:00.

Thanks in advance.

They are both fine if you delete "at" in the first one.

I'm so sorry, would you read it again because "due" was missing as well? And tell whether it's right or not!

It's fine with "due to" as well.

One more correction:

"In my opinion, there's no difference, [STRIKE]isn't it[/STRIKE] is there?"
