John Barrowman is so excited to be touring again next year, he says he’s choreographing songs and arranging stories in his sleep.

The singer and actor is coming to Southend’s Cliffs Pavilion on May 16 and the Ipswich Regent on May 26.

Both visits are part of a 16-date tour, his first full UK tour in four years, promoting new album You Raise Me Up, out on June 30.

Funded through PledgeMusic’s Direct to Fan platform, it features new arrangements of many of Barrowman’s favourite songs including Mandy and Bridge Over Troubled Water to the title track You Raise Me Up.

“This album has been a thrilling personal journey for me,” said the Doctor Who and Torchwood star.

Tickets go on sale from 10am Friday.
