To All My Brilliant Fans And Everyone Who Has Bought Tickets For Jason Donovan And His Amazing Midlife Crisis.
It is with huge regret that due to reasons associated with my speaking voice, I've decided to postpone my forthcoming Midlife Crisis tour until Spring 2018.
Those that know me will know that this was not easy decision, nor a decision taken lightly.
For the past ten years I've done hundreds of shows and have only ever cancelled a handful of dates. As you can imagine, when your speaking voice is strained, it’s difficult to embark on a 35 date tour that primarily revolves around me telling stories about my career and my life! I want to be on top form so as I can enjoy the experience and most importantly that you as an audience can share these memories without a sense that I'm compromising my performance therefore my personality.
Postponing this tour was the absolute last option but necessary if I’m to explore all avenues associated with improving this condition, which strains my speaking voice but does not directly affect my singing voice. The good news is that it is treatable but requires time, time to work through various options that medical advice has suggested.
I will continue to fulfil all scheduled singing dates.
There is some more good news too. Due to popular demand, we have been able to add 11 more shows to our tour, so I really hope that means everyone who wants to can come and join me for what I think will be a fantastic evening that we are all going to love.

Again, my sincere apologies to all for the inconvenience. Thanks for bearing with me, I'll be back after Christmas in full voice putting on a show that I'm really looking forward to.
Can’t wait to see you all in 2018
Jason is delighted to announce that he will be hitting the road once again in the autumn, only this time, it’s a tour with a twist!! He is headed to new locations across the country and these intimate gigs will be a unique opportunity to see him like you’ve never seen him before!
At aged 49 ½ and with a wealth of tantalising tales under his belt, this autobiographical show will take Jason’s looming 50th birthday as its starting point and will zigzag back and forth through his life.
Hear some new stories (and possibly one or two you’ve heard before!) plus some of the songs you know and love for a night like no other!
