Britain’s best all-round entertainer John Barrowman has announced a 16-date tour for 2015 in support of his new album, ‘You Raise Me Up’ (June 30th release).

This will be John’s first full UK tour in four years, and promises to be an entertainment experience not to be missed.

‘I’m so excited to be touring again,’ said John, ‘that I’m choreographing songs and arranging stories in my sleep.’

John’s fans funded the album through PledgeMusic’s Direct to Fan platform. It features new arrangements of many of John’s favourite songs, including ‘Mandy’, ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’, ‘A Thousand Years,’ and the title track, ‘You Raise Me Up.’

‘This album has been a thrilling personal journey for me,’ added John. ‘Each lyric, each melody means something special. I can’t wait to perform them live for all my fans who helped fund “You Raise Me Up.”’

John’s career has been nothing short of incredible and this year has been no exception. John was awarded an MBE in HM The Queen’s Birthday Honours this month and apart from starring in ‘Arrow’ as Malcolm Merlyn (aka The Dark Archer) in the US and on Sky in the UK, hosting ’Sing Your Face Off’ for ABC in the US, John is about to release his third fantasy novel, ‘The Book of Beasts’ co-authored with his sister Carole Barrowman. John’s new Channel 4 show ‘John Barrowman’s Pets with Problems’ will air this summer, and later this year he’ll host the BBC 1 quiz show ‘Pressure Pad,’ The National Lottery Awards, and play Buttons in Glasgow SECC’s 2014-15 pantomime production of ‘Cinderella.’

‘I’ve got lots to celebrate with my fans on this “You Raise Me Up Tour,”’ said John. ‘Let’s raise these theatre roofs together!’
