Jason Donovan will be heading to Harrogate Theatre later this year.

He's announced a 34-date UK tour for his autobiographical show 'Jason and his Amazing Midlife Crisis', which will be filled with stories, laughter and music.

It'll examine every aspect of his "rollercoaster" life, from where he began to where he is today, and will be a rare chance for the audience to ask questions.

Jason will also perform some acoustic versions of his classic hits.

He said: "In the past, I've either been too young, too busy or too dazed and confused to be able to make sense my life. But now, on the eve of my 50th birthday - and older and wiser, if a little more weathered - I believe that I am finally in a position to put my life into perspective. I'm in a great place, surrounded by good people and don't feel like I need to prove myself any more."

Jason was the ultimate 80s heart-throb who commanded an audience of 22 million in 'Neighbours', dated Kylie and went on to score no fewer than 16 hit singles, sell over 30 million records worldwide and appear in a series of hit West End musicals.

He added: "My dad always said to me, the secret to a long and happy life is not to take it all too seriously. I've been on the edge, pushed my life to the extreme and come back from it, which has actually made me stronger and made me realise what I DON'T want to do with my life.

"I think perhaps the key to a good life is keeping a balance both physically and mentally, and the realisation that success is not the key to happiness, happiness is the key to success."

'Jason and his Amazing Midlife Crisis' will be at Harrogate Theatre on 2 November.

Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday 24 March at www.jasondonovan.com
