The current UK and Ireland tour of Les Misérables has announced new venues for 2019.

The hit musical, which kicked off its tour in Leicester earlier this month, will now visit Plymouth (11 June to 6 July), Bradford (9 July to 10 August), Liverpool (9 to 26 October) and Cardiff (26 November to 4 January), with even more locations to be confirmed.

The tour is based on Cameron Mackintosh's newest production of the show, which first premiered in 2009 and toured throughout the year and ran at the Barbican for 22 performances in 2010.

It stars Killian Donnelly as Jean Valjean alongside Nic Greenshields as Javert, Katie Hall as Fantine, Martin Ball as Thénardier, Sophie-Louise Dann as Madame Thénardier, Harry Apps as Marius, Tegan Bannister as Eponine, Will Richardson as Enjolras and Bronwen Hanson as Cosette.

Based on Victor Hugo's 1862 novel about the lives of people in 19th century France, Boublil and Schönberg's musical features the classic songs "I Dreamed a Dream", "On My Own" and "Do You Hear the People Sing?". It is currently running in the West End at the Queen's Theatre, where it is booking until June 2019.

Other locations on the tour include Dublin, Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham and Milton Keynes.
