Ahead of her debut solo album being released next week, Gay Times favourite Sheridan Smith has revealed she’s hitting the road next year.
The solo tour, which features dates across the country, will feature a rather special date at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall – an event that’s sure to be a career highlight for the former Funny Girl leading lady.
Sheridan: The Album will be released on 3 November and features tracks including City of Stars from La La Land, Superstar, My Man, For Forever from Broadway smash Dear Evan Hansen, and even the signature Dreamgirls track And I Am Telling You (I’m Not Going).
There’s also her now somewhat signature song Anyone Who Had A Heart – a Cilla Black classic.
Announcing the album release, Sheridan said: “It has been an ambition since I was a child to record my own album so I’m incredibly excited to be recording some of my favourite songs and working alongside an amazing team at East West Records.”
Tour dates throughout April include:
10th Gateshead, The Sage
13th Liverpool, Philharmonic Hall
16th Manchester, The Bridgewater Hotel
17th Blackpool, Opera House
19th Nottingham, Royal Concert Hall
22nd Norwich, Theatre Royal
24th London, Royal Albert Hall
26th Edinburgh, The Playhouse
29th Cardiff, Wales Millennium Centre
The album will be featured as part of Sheridan’s special one-off TV extravaganza which will be broadcast by ITV at 9pm on 5 November.
Sheridan’s a long-standing supporter of the LGBT+ community. On receiving her Olivier Award nomination for Funny Girl earlier this year, she wrote: “All my loves (except god) in 1 pic!!!❤️”
She later added a comment below, featuring all the “Love You!” It was followed by five rainbow love hearts.
