AUTUMN UK TOUR ANNOUNCED

 WWW.JOHNBARROWMAN.COM 

John Barrowman, Britain’s most successful – and comfortably Britain’s best – all-round entertainer releases his third solo album, the self-titled John Barrowman this week on Arista and has now announced a brand new 23 date UK Tour including a show at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

John Barrowman is easily one of the most familiar faces on British television and the West End stage. Best known for playing Captain Jack Harkness in the BBC series’ Torchwood and Doctor Who, he has also been a judge on the award-winning BBC1 entertainment shows How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?, Any Dream Will Do and I’d Do Anything. More recently he has hosted his own primetime Saturday night TV extravaganza, Tonight’s The Night and graced London’s West End as Zaza in the Olivier Award-winning La Cage Aux Folles.  John Barrowman recently announced he has accepted a role in the hit TV show Desperate Housewives and will start filming imminently.  

John Barrowman is perhaps his most personal album to date – the album he has always wanted to make.  As with 2007’s Another Side and 2008’s Music Music Music, it is a masterful, evocative and uplifting journey into perhaps the man’s first love, musical theatre, comprising his favourite moments from Cats, Mamma Mia, Jersey Boys and Mack and Mabel to name a few. The album is filled with instantly familiar classics – Memory, The Winner Takes It All, My Eyes Adored You – to the less immediately familiar, such as So Close, a spine-tingling duet with Jodie Prenger lifted from the recent Disney movie Enchanted and chosen for his niece Clare. Also included is a beautiful version of You’ll Never Walk Alone from Carousel, a song which his mother sang to him as a child. Every track holds an emotional relevance for John.

Recorded exclusively for the iTunes album, The Doctor and I, about Captain Jack’s relationship with Doctor Who, is an imaginative re-working of The Wizard And I from the musical Wicked.

John Barrowman is representative of a man at the height of his powers, someone who can fill a song with the same chutzpah and style that he can a role on the West End stage. Simply put, he has never sounded better. 2010 is already promising to be a remarkable year for John Barrowman with a number of major projects confirmed. Watch him go global!
