Unfortunately, this is now well and truly out of my price range, but I am happily recommending it to everyone on the basis of the John Barrowman show that I saw at the London Palladium in November 2011. John's show is very personal, it is uplifting and inspirational. It is founded on the fact that he is an openly gay man, and very proud to be so. If you are going along, have fun!
I can recommend the venue 100%. I saw James Blunt there last year, when my financial position was a lot better than it is now (!), and the venue was first rate.

John Barrowman, Sunday 24 June 2012
We are delighted to announce that for our 20th Anniversary we have added an extra show – the fantastic John Barrowman will close celebrations on Sunday 24th June!

As singer, actor and TV personality he is well known for his West End musical roles in ‘Anything Goes’, ’Miss Saigon’, ‘Phantom of the Opera’ and ‘La Cage Aux Folles’, for hosting his own BBC entertainment show ‘Tonight’s The Night’, judge on talent shows ‘How Do You Solve a Problem like Maria?’ and ‘I’d Do Anything’, as well as his outstanding role of Captain Jack Harkness in ‘Doctor Who’ and the hugely popular spin-off series ‘Torchwood’.
After the phenomenal success of four solo albums and accompanying tours, John returns to the concert stage, making Hampton Court Palace Festival his only London appearance this year. With a full band and dancers, John Barrowman will provide a spectacular finale to our 20th birthday celebrations!
