Pop heart-throb Jason Donovan has good reason to visit Sheffield – for a greatest hits tour.
The Aussie star of stage and screen is returning to his roots with a solo tour of his smash-hit debut album Ten Good Reasons – featuring number one hits SealedWith A Kiss and Too Many Broke Hearts – in its entiriety, alongside some greatest hits.
The Eighties icon, who will play Sheffield City Hall on Wednesday, March 16, next year, said: “One of my favourite albums of all time was Peter Gabriel’s So.
“When I saw ads recently for a So album tour, I thought what a good idea, the opportunity to play an album from top to bottom in its true authenticity while giving the fans exactly what they want.
“I plan to include some tracks in the second half from periods other than 1989, but the audience will know all the songs.
“Whether it’s theatre or touring, I’ve always placed a high importance on giving my fans a great live show.
“I’m looking forward to bringing all the pieces together and creating a show that gives personality, some great memories and most importantly, giving the audience exactly what they want to hear.
“Although so much time has passed since I recorded Ten Good Reasons, it has the ability to transport us all back to the halcyon days on the 80s and 90s.
“It’s so touching to have an album which has a place in so many peoples’ hearts and one which remains a huge fan favourite.”
* Tickets, priced from £28.50, go on sale on Friday, at 10am, from www.sheffieldcityhall.co.uk
