THE legendary Joanna Lumley will embark on her first ever live tour, It’s All About Me, in autumn 2018.
Joanna will take to the road for a 30-date tour including a visit to Southampton Guildhall on Friday November 2.
There will be further local dates at the Bournemouth International Centre on Saturday November 3 and Portsmouth Guildhall on Sunday November 4.
Joanna said: “The thought of this tour next year, travelling across the British Isles and Ireland, has completely taken over my waking hours.
“It’s utterly thrilling to start planning the stories I can tell, and the rapture (and gratitude, to be fair) with which I shall greet the audiences. Nothing like this has come my way before, and I may have to be dragged off with a hook at the end of each show. Oh people! This is especially for you from me, with masses of love. I think it will be fabulous.”
Joanna Lumley icon, national treasure, activist, comedy actress and all-round top girl is barely off our TV screens and appears to have been a permanent fixture in our sitting rooms since she burst onto our screens as Purdey in the New Avengers in 1976.
Now in a nationwide tour she will take us through the random journey that started in London in the swinging ‘60s. Beginning as Jean Muir’s house model and muse, progressing to becoming a full-blown photographic model, featuring in knitting patterns, mini-skirts, toothpaste commercials and the occasional front cover.
From there Joanna will share her stories of her acting career that includes Coronation Street, On the Buses, Dracula and as a brainwashed Bond Girl in Blofeld’s lair in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.
She will also be joined on stage by friend and producer Clive Tulloh, who will put questions to Joanna from the audience that they’ve always wanted to ask. To book visit ticketmaster.co.uk
