Colm Wilkinson performs West End concert in June as part of new tour
Colm Wilkinson, the original Jean Valjean, will return to the West End in June for a one-off concert performance at the Lyceum Theatre.
According to press material, "Broadway and Beyond gives fans old and new the opportunity to see and hear a more intimate and personal side of this phenomenal performer."
The two-hour concert will include "Music of the night", "Some Enchanted Evening", "Somewhere", and his signature song "Bring Him Home". He'll also tell stories from his long career and put a new spin on classics including "Danny Boy", "Whiskey in a Jar" and Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah".
Wilkinson, who was recently seen in the Oscar-nominated Les Miserables movie and has also starred in Jesus Christ Superstar, The Phantom of the Opera and Evita, will be joined on stage by two female vocalists and a seven-piece band under the musical direction of Gavin Murphy.
The Broadway and Beyond tour will also visit Dublin, Limerick, Edinburgh, Cardiff and venues across the USA.
