Q arts centre: JOHN BARROWMAN

Q Magazine - - News -

From West End lead­ing man to time-trav­el­ling hero, John Barrowman MBE is the epit­ome of en­ter­tain­ment. Exclusive to Arts Centre Mel­bourne, on Tues­day Jan­uary 16, 2018, John Barrowman will make his Aus­tralian de­but with an in­ti­mate per­for­mance of songs and sto­ries at Hamer Hall.

In his first Aus­tralian con­cert, John Barrowman, ac­com­pa­nied by a live band, will per­form a reper­toire that ranges from Sting to Sond­heim, Cole Porter to Barry Manilow and Big Band to Mo­town, with a few surprises in be­tween. John will also share sto­ries and anec­dotes from his life and ca­reer that are both hu­mor­ous and heart-warm­ing.

John Barrowman's first per­for­mance was at his par­ents' par­ties in Scot­land when he was a wee boy. He has been en­ter­tain­ing au­di­ences on stage and screen ever since. Fa­mous for his por­trayal as the charm­ing Cap­tain Jack Hark­ness in BBC's Doc­tor Who, John's char­ac­ter was so pop­u­lar he was given his own hugely suc­cess­ful spin-off se­ries, Torch­wood. John also starred as Mal­colm Mer­lyn in five sea­sons of Ar­row.

On the stage, John's ver­sa­til­ity is un­ri­valled. From ‘Any­thing Goes', ‘The Phan­tom of the Opera', ‘La Cage Aux Folles', and ‘Miss Saigon' on London's West End, ‘Sun­set Boule­vard' and ‘Putting it To­gether' on Broad­way to his sold out con­cert tours across the UK, John's ex­tra­or­di­nary show­man­ship and sin­gu­lar tal­ents daz­zle au­di­ences. In 2014, he was awarded an MBE (Mem­ber of the Order of the Bri­tish Em­pire) for ser­vices to en­ter­tain­ment and char­ity in the Queen's Birth­day Hon­ours list.

John Barrowman says of his up­com­ing per­for­mance: “I am truly thrilled to be com­ing to Mel­bourne to sing and en­ter­tain my fan fam­ily down un­der. You will recog­nise my songs as I blend them with sto­ries from mo­ments and events through my life and ca­reer. If you don’t know John Barrowman, come along and I prom­ise you a great night of en­ter­tain­ment.”

A unique tal­ent and a true show­man - this is a show not to be missed.
