BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing star Craig Revel Horwood is taking to the road in the spring with his debut solo tour.

Craig is coming to Watford Colosseum on Thursday, May 28, next year, to talk about his life from Australia to the West End to Strictly. Along the way, he will reveal a wealth of backstage gossip with his trademark wit and candour, and give a very special performance of the music which has been the soundtrack to his career.

Craig's professional training began in his home country of Australia where he appeared in productions including West Side Story and La Cage Aux Folles.

On arriving in Europe Craig joined the famous company at the Lido Du Paris as a dancer and then as principle singer at the Moulin Rouge, finding himself a year later in the UK tour of Cats.

Since then, Craig has appeared in the West End in Miss Saigon and was an original cast member of Crazy For You. He crossed over into choreography to huge success, being nominated for an Olivier Award for the West End productions of Spend Spend Spend and My One and Only. Since then he has had numerous credits as director/choreographer across the world, ranging from the hugely successful UK tour of Sister Act to the movie Paddington 2. Craig continues to perform onstage, with ten years in pantomime and as Miss Hannigan in Annie in the West End and on tour.

But he is of course best known as the judge on all 17 series of Strictly Come Dancing, and now also as Head Judge on Dancing With The Stars Australia.

Tickets go on sale today (Friday, October 4).
