Jason Sean Donovan was born into a show business family in Melbourne Australia on 1 June 1968. His good looks and talent made him a natural on Australian TV. His first appearances on television there included as ‘I Can Jump Puddles’, ‘Skyways’ and ‘Gold Pennies’.
His big break came with the role of Scott Robinson in the primetime soap ‘Neighbours’ which turned him into an international star gaining every Australian major award including Most Popular Actor. The series went onto to become one of the highest rating shows in the UK which led to Jason’s huge chart success within the PWL Pop era. His debut album ‘Ten Good Reasons’ was the biggest selling album of 1989 with sales of 1.5 million including the duet ‘Especially For You’ with Kylie Minogue and ‘Too Many Broken Hearts’ which contributed in the impressive world sales of 13 million albums and 4 UK No. 1s. Music was always a constant in Jason’s career and in particular he shone in his portrayal of Joseph in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s production of ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ at London’s Palladium in 1991 reaching 18-month sell out run, number one single and best- selling soundtrack album.
In February 2018, Donovan will take to the road on a 47-date UK tour for his autobiographical show ‘Jason and his Amazing Midlife Crisis’. The ‘in conversation’ style show will be filled with stories, laughter and music spanning Jason’s amazing career.
The show will examine every aspect of Jason’s life, from where he began to where he is today as we revisit his past, present and future. Jason’s relentless enthusiasm and a refreshingly blunt compulsion towards honesty will reveal all about his rollercoaster life. The show will be a rare chance to get up close and personal with the star with an opportunity for the audience to ask questions. Jason will also perform some acoustic versions of his classic hits.
