It has been announced that West End and Broadway star Ramin Karimloo will headline a solo concert at the London Palladium.
The Iranian-Canadian actor and singer - who recently received a Tony nomination for his performance as Jean Valjean in the Broadway revival of Les Miserables - will play the one-night-only show at London's most iconic theatre on Saturday 16th July 2016.
Karimloo recently played two sold out concerts at Islington’s Union Chapel and the Assembly Hall. Performing a selection of classics from musicals alongside his own Broadgrass songs, Karimloo will be joined by his band including Sergio Ortega, Hadley Fraser and Alan Markley with backing vocals from Katie Birtill.
The show will be directed by Peter Taylor. Wicked legend Louise Dearman will join Karimloo for a "duet or two."
Karimloo says: "I was so excited to come back to London for the two sell out shows. The band, the sound and show have grown so much over the last three years. We love bringing this style of music which has organically grown to the great support we get.
"Playing the Palladium is such an honour. The history of great performers who have done shows there, the variety and calibre is second to none. I know my band is just as excited to bring this show to the greatest theatre in England. It’s going to be an electric night - a hootenanny in the heart of the West End."
After completing his run in Les Miserables on Broadway, Karimloo recently starred in The Prince of Broadway in Japan. He has also played Jean Valjean in Les Miserables in the West End and Toronto. Karimloo has starred as The Phantom in both Love Never Dies (Adelphi) and The Phantom of the Opera (Her Majesty's/Royal Albert Hall). His latest EP The Road To Find Out - East was released in April 2014.
