Lee will be accompanied on stage by a 12-piece band including a brass section who regularly perform with Michael Buble and Mark Ronson and a string quartet under the musical direction of keyboardist Adam Dennis.
The show will see Lee performing highlights from his 20 year career in musical theatre, along with songs from his five albums and new material that he's been busy writing during lockdown. There will the live premiere of Lee's forthcoming new single Little Light, a song written for him by Steve Balsamo, who will make a special guest appearance at the Palladium to duet with Lee on Snow Falling In June which Lee co wrote with Balsamo and Adam Dennis.
Talking about the London Palladium show, Lee said: "It will be an incredible moment to bring my own show to the London Palladium for the first time – it really is something I have dreamed of my whole life. After a year of lockdowns and turning 40 this summer, I thought what better way to celebrate. All performers have missed live theatre so much and it will be a fantastic moment for me." Commenting on Twitter after the announcement, he added that the show was "as much for the fans as it is for me". This fan (and I know I'm not alone) thanks you Lee!
