Ramin Karimloo, the dashing Tony Award nominee currently co-starring in the new Broadway musical Anastasia, has announced plans to premiere his new solo concert show in January 2018 at the Royal Festival Hall in London.
The Iranian-Canadian actor has played major stage roles in London and New York, earning a Tony nomination for his Broadway debut as Jean Valjean in the 2014 revival of Les Misérables. He sold out three 2016 concert shows in London, where he has played leads in The Phantom of the Opera and its sequel, Love Never Dies.
Currently scheduled for a single performance on January 13, the as-yet-untitled London concert show will feature numbers from some of Karimloo’s shows, including “Bring Him Home,” “Music of the Night,” “Empty Chairs and Empty Tables,” “Old Man River,” plus his own original songs. He will perform with a band that includes a string quartet and brass section.
In the meantime Karimloo is in previews for Anastasia at Broadway’s Broadhurst Theatre in the role of General Gleb Vagonov. Opening night is scheduled for April 24.
Tickets for the London concert, at £20–£50, plus a £1.75 booking fee, can be ordered now through Southbankcentre.co.uk, or by calling 020 3879 9555.
