Titled Lee Mead at the London Palladium, the concert will see the star of stage and screen performing highlights from his career in musical theatre including songs from Miss Saigon -Why God Why, Music of the Night from Phantom of the Opera; Any Dream Will Do and Close Every Door from his West End breakthrough performance in Joseph And The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat – the role that he won on the TV series Any Dream Will Do which brought him into the public eye.

Throughout the concert, Mead will be accompanied by a 12 piece band including a brass section who regularly perform with Michael Buble and Mark Ronson and a string quartet under the musical direction of keyboardist Adam Dennis.
Talking about the London Palladium show, Lee said: “It will be an incredible moment to bring my own show to the London Palladium for the first time – it really is something I have dreamed of my whole life. After a year of lockdowns and turning 40 this Summer, I thought what better way to celebrate. All performers have missed live theatre so much and it will be a fantastic moment for me.”
The Palladium concert will be the precursor to his upcoming UK tour which is set to begin on 3rd September and runs through 31st October. Dates and ticket sale links are available on his official website.
