John Barrowman announces UK tour to accompany greatest hits album
Date Posted: 15/03/11
John Barrowman has announced he is to embark on a UK concert tour later this year to accompany the release of his The Best of John Barrowman album.
Famed for his appearances on Doctor Who and its spin off Torchwood, Barrowman has also had a number of hit albums including Another Side, Music Music Music and a self titled release.
The tour, which kicks off in Northampton on October 19th, will see him perform a selection from all his previous records and bring his flamboyant personality live on stage.
"Touring round the country doing live performances for all my fans has to be one of my favourite times of the year. I love the thrill of a live performance," he said.
Barrowman is set to perform just one gig for those on London breaks, on November 7th at the Palladium, while those staying in Manchester hotels will be able to catch him twice on October 30th and November 15th.
He will also be heading to Birmingham, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Cardiff on the 27-date tour. Tickets go on sale at 09:00 GMT on March 18th.
Over the years, Barrowman has appeared in a number of hit musicals, including Miss Saigon, The Phantom of the Opera and Sunset Boulevard.
