John Barrowman to embark on UK concert tour

John Barrowman will embark on a 16-date concert tour in 2015, his first full UK tour in four years. Beginning on May 16, 2015 in Southend, the tour will visit towns and cities across the UK, before finishing at the Sage, Gateshead on June 8, 2015.

The You Raise Me Up tour will be in support of his new album of the same name, which is released next week and was funded via music crowdfunding site PledgeMusic.

Barrowman was awarded an MBE in the 2014 Queen’s Birthday Honours list. He is best known for his leading roles in TV shows such as Torchwood, Doctor Who and Desperate Housewives. His theatre credits include Anything Goes, Chicago, La Cage Aux Folles, Beauty and the Beast, Phantom of the Opera and Sunset Boulevard to name a few. 

You Raise Me Up, which coincides with his album of the same name, opens in May 2015, with tickets going on sale this Friday (27 June). The tour includes a date at the London Palladium, on 24 May.

Barrowman said: “This album has been a thrilling personal journey for me. Each lyric, each melody means something special. I can’t wait to perform them live for all my fans who helped fund You Raise Me Up.”
