WEST End star Lee Mead is to perform live in Cheltenham next month, it has been announced.
The winner of BBC’s popular talent series Any Dream Will Do will bring his show ‘An Evening With Lee Mead’ to Cheltenham Town Hall on Sunday, September 29, starting at 7.30pm.
The show will see Mead take to the stage to perform hits from his West End triumphs including Joseph, Wicked and Legally Blonde.
He will also perform various songs from his three albums ‘Lee Mead’, ‘Nothing Else Matters’ and last year’s album titled ‘Love Songs’.
Likened to a young Michael Ball, Mead’s vocal talents can now be enjoyed by thousands as a solo artist and the show will feature backing from a live band led by
MD Mason Neely.
While performing in The Phantom of the Opera, Mead auditioned for the 2009 BBC series in a bid to play Joseph in a West End revival of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.
After reaching the final stages was voted the winner by the British public and following his successful run, more work came Mead’s way as he played the title role in a touring revival of Lord Arthur Savile’s ‘Crime’ adapted by Trevor Baxter.
He then returned to the West End in May 2010 to take on the role of Fiyero in the musical Wicked and pursued a solo career – taking his own show An Evening
With Lee Mead to various venues across the UK. A year later saw Mead back in theatre action as he starred in Legally Blonde before departing for a tour in Japan at the end of the year.
Last year saw Mead tour with his new band and he then later released his third album.
A fourth album and a new tour next year are among the highlights for Mead whose show is one not to be missed.
