Nelson is joined in the cast by Hannah Barrie, Jack Lord, Ruth Alexander, Vanessa Schofield, Jordon Kemp, Michael Hugo, Andy Cryer, Andrew Whitehead, Jessica Dyas, Lauryn Redding, Russell Richardson and Adam Barlow.

The tour will visit Oldham. Bury St Edmunds, Scarborough, Cheltenham, Huddersfield, Newcastle under Lyme, Lancaster, Liverpool and Halifax.
