I recently caught up with the ever lovely John Owen-Jones for an article about Les Mis (you’ll have to wait a while for that, sorry!) and he mentioned that he would be travelling to Japan in the near future for a couple of concerts. The repertoire will be mainly musicals with songs from his last couple of albums thrown in…Rise Like A Phoenix should be amazing live. Tokyo will feature a band but Osaka will have a much more intimate feel with John accompanied by just John Quirke on piano.
During the interview, John talked about a few new projects coming up, one of which involved directing! Sounds intriguing.
In case, Japan is a long way to go for a concert, John is also appearing at the following UK summer concerts:
Aug 2 – Les Mis v Phantom
Aug 6 – Welsh National Eistedfodd
Oct 23-25 – Broadway to the Bay
John’s album, Rise, is available here:
