• West End

West End star and musical innovator Ramin Karimloo is heading to the London Palladium for a special one-night show.

Iranian-Canadian actor and singer Ramin, who rose to fame on stages across the world, is now carving a career as one of the most uniquely talented singers around.

And rather than follow strictly in the footsteps of his peers by performing only songs from musical theatre, he is combining his passion for West End and Broadway with his love of Country and Bluegrass to create his own special blend of "Broadgrass". Ramin will perform at the London Palladium on Saturday July 16.

Speaking about his date at the Palladium Ramin said: "I was so excited to come back to London for the two sell out shows. The band, the sound and show have grown so much over the last three years. We love bringing this style of music which has organically grown to the great support we get. Playing the Palladium is such an honour. The history of great performers who have done shows there, the variety and calibre is second to none. I know my band is just as excited to bring this show to the greatest theatre in England. It's going to be an electric night - a hootenanny in the heart of the West End."

The Palladium concert will see Ramin perform a selection of classics from musical theatre alongside his own Broadgrass songs. Ramin, who also plays the banjo and guitar, will perform with his band comprising of Sergio Ortega, Hadley Fraser and Alan Markley with backing vocals from Katie Birtill. Musical theatre leading lady Louise Dearman, the first performer to have ever played both the lead roles of Glinda and Elphaba in West End hit Wicked, will also join Ramin for a duet or two.

Olivier and Tony Award nominee Ramin is best known for playing leading roles in both of the West End's longest running musicals - The Phantom and Raoul in The Phantom of the Opera, and Jean Valjean, Enjolras, and Marius in Les MisÚrables. He also originated the role of the Phantom in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Love Never Dies and made his Broadway debut as Valjean in the 2014 revival production of Les MisÚrables.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
