Lee Mead is to celebrate his 40th birthday with a live concert at the London Palladium.
The star of stage and screen will return to the West End with a special live concert on 10 June 2021 with tickets on sale now here.
The show will see the ever popular star celebrate his forthcoming 40th birthday with his fans with an evening of wonderful music spanning his 20 year career.
Joining Lee will be special guests including Kerry Ellis, Marisha Wallace, Dalton Harris and Steve Balsamo.
They will be accompanied on stage 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.
The concert will see Lee performing highlights from his career in musical theatre with songs from Miss Saigon, Phantom of the Opera, Wicked, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Joseph And The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat – the coveted role that he won on the TV series Any Dream Will Do which catapulted him into the public eye.
In addition to the musical theatre elements of the concert, Lee will also be performing songs from his five albums along with new material that he has been busy writing during lockdown, including new single Little Light, a song written by Steve Balsamo (Jesus Christ Superstar) who will make a special guest appearance at the Palladium to perform a duet with Lee on Snow Falling In June which Lee co wrote with Balsamo and MD Adam Dennis.
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.”
Following the Palladium concert, Lee will head out on a 35-date UK tour between 3 September and 31 October with tickets and dates available on www.leemead.co.uk
