Jason Donovan

Jason Donovan, St David’s Hall, Cardiff.

An enjoyable evening was had at St David’s Hall on Monday when Jason Donovan brought his tour to Cardiff.

The evening started off with singer/songwriter Hannah singing some great songs from her new album “Everything is Changing”.

After the interval, excitement filled the air as Jason Donovan took to the stage. He began with the classic songs Let It Be Me and Love Letters from his new album (the first in 15 years) “Let It Be Me”. Other highlights from this album included Dream Lover and his current single Dreamboats & Petticoats.

The next section was probably my favourite of the night where he played 2 new songs that he had written this year but were not on an album yet, the first was one his dad loved called Home and the second (I missed the title) was dedicated to his children.

The build up to the finale included favourites like Rhythm of the Rain, Sealed with a Kiss and Especially for you with the concert finishing with Any Dream Will Do from Joseph and The Amazing Technicolored Dreamcoat and his first solo Number 1 hit Too Many Broken Hearts.

I must also mention the beautiful set with drapes and a chandelier making the venue feel like a luxurious ballroom.
