Ramin Karimloo In Concert

His devoted fans would love anything he does, but im not sure it is enough to attract the wider mainstream audience. His album debuted very well at 16 in the charts, but then dropped to the 60s and now seems to have dropped out of the top 100. Reminds me of Kerry Ellis last album

However, I don't think he is trying to move away completely from musical theatre. The album is what he wants to do at this time of his career but he will be back on stage in the West End in the not too distant future I'm sure.
He's been working in theatre solid for the last 10 years so he probably just wants a change for a while.

I can't remember all details (only that Simon Bailey is doing Glasgow, LouiseDearman is doing a few venues as is Jonathan Ansell). But it's all up on his Twitter.
Thanks for that. Seems I'll have Johnathan and Louise in Birmingham! What a treat!

It was a very enjoyable night, and I was very impressed with the guitar, piano and banjo playing. With the album there's no real mix up in the orchestrations so it was great to hear more variety behind the songs.
Sorry to hear whooping man is still ruining shows. Thankfully I couldn't really hear him from where I was.

On to the concert, I went to the RFH opening night. I love his album and I think he likes to dabble in all kinds of music. He did say he hadnt broken away from theatre and if he was offered a role he would take it. I really wish they'd bring back Miss Saigon. I never saw it and I'd love to see Ramin in that. Instead they revive awful things like Wizard of Oz. I did find though that the band was too loud and drowned him out a bit. Also I would have loved a female guest because I love him dueting with romantic stuff. I thought there was an over ambudance of male guests and I really wasnt madly keen on his old mate Tim Howar (didnt know he was married to Ruth Henshall), who I found a bit cabaret and he reminded me of a kind of 60/70s entertainer, sort of Austin Powers with that suit and fluffy shirt and page boy haircut. And the love-in was a bit annoying.
Other than that really enjoyed, Sorry I'm rambling on first post!

We can't always choose our 'fan'
