Earlier this week Lee chatted 'down the line' to Eric Smith for his Saturday breakfast show on BBC Radio Shropshire, ahead of his Lee Mead - 10 Years - The Anniversary Tour stop at Theatre Severn Shrewsbury on Friday 27 April.
And it's a really good listen - well-researched, wide-ranging, relaxed, full of interesting insights, including many that were new to me, despite how many of Lee's interviews I've heard before! Plus airplay for two tracks from Lee's new 10 Year Anniversary album - Close Every Door from Joseph and his stunning cover of John Legend's All Of Me - what a great start to a Saturday morning!
Both tour and album celebrate an amazing decade since Lee first won and played the role of Joseph in the West End. Having opened with two sell-out shows in February, the tour continues one weekend a month through to November - the extended schedule allowing for Lee's ongoing Holby City filming commitments. In addition to April's Shrewsbury date, there are two further dates later in the tour that are also reasonably local to the station's area - in Malvern on Sunday 20 May and Redditch on Sunday 28 October.
