John Barrowman announces summer UK tour dates


John Barrowman has confirmed he’ll bring the Fabulous Tour to the UK this summer.

The newly announced dates kick off in the entertainer’s hometown of Glasgow on 18 June 2019, taking in a total of 12 shows before finishing at Cardiff’s St David’s Hall on Tuesday 2 July 2019.

The tour sees Barrowman celebrate 30 years on stage and screen, with his favourite songs and stories from his life and career in show business.

Barrowman first rose to fame starring opposite Elaine Paige as Billy Croker in the musical Anything Goes. He has since gone on to star in West End productions of Miss Saigon, The Phantom of The Opera, Sunset Boulevard and most recently La Cage Aux Folles. In 1998 the actor was nominated for an Olivier Award for his role in The Fix. 

Alongside theatre, the actor is well known for his television performances in shows such as Arrow and Desperate Housewives. Barrowman is perhaps best known for his role as Captain Jack Harkness in Doctor Who and its spin-off Torchwood. 

An accomplished singer, Barrowman last toured the UK in 2015 in support of his You Raise Me Up album. The performer has released eight studio albums in his career so far.

In December 2018, Barrowman participated in the ITV reality series I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, where his upbeat attitude in the jungle helped lift the mood of a nation and his fellow campmates. The performer finished third in the celebrity show, behind Emily Atack and winner Harry Redknapp.
