AUSSIE 80s heartthrob Jason Donovan is saying G’Day to Barrow — and promises to dish the dirt on his long and varied career.

The actor turned singer shot to fame alongside Kylie Minogue in Neighbours and a string of hit records followed bringing fame and fortune.

But life was often a bumpy road for the star, whose hits included Too Many Broken Hearts and the worldwide smash Especially For You sung with co-star and then girlfriend Kylie.

And he will tell all when his brings his Amazing Midlife Crisis’ show to The Forum, talking about his life and telling tales of his storied career.

Jason is no stranger to the area and is excited to share his stories with his fans.

He said: “Cumbria is a beautiful part of the world and I’m looking forward to coming to Barrow and seeing you guys.”

Throughout his career, from Neighbours, to his chart-topping music career, to Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat to an appearance on I’m A Celebrity, Jason has captured the hearts of his adopted country.

Starting out in Neighbours at the height of its popularity and his relationship with Kylie, he went on to score no fewer than 16 hit singles, sell over 30 million records worldwide

Pigeon-holed from early on, his desire to shake-off his family friendly image resulted in him famously collapsing during a cocaine-fuelled binge at Johnny Depp and Kate Moss’s party and passing out on top of Jack Nicholson.

Now aged 49 and with a wealth of tantalising tales under his belt, Donovan’s autobiographical show takes the singer’s looming 50th birthday as its starting point and stretches through his life in which becoming a heart-throb at 18 and falling from grace at 27 plays only a tiny part.

Talking about his tour and the reception it has received, he said: “When I first started the tour, I did not expect to get such an amazing response

“If I’m honest I didn’t think anyone would be interested in my life story.

“But it’s so humbling to be selling out theatres across the country.

“My fans are the best.”

“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 fiftieth birthday, “I’m and older and wiser, if a little more weathered.

“I believe 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”.

The show at The Forum takes place on March 30.
