Lee's agents have just announced that he'll be doing a series of concerts at the Pheasantry in the King's Road, Chelsea, from 14-17 August.

https://www.facebook.com/OfficiallyLeeMead
That's an interesting new venture for Lee. The Pheasantry is an intimate cabaret space with a capacity of 80 so should be quite different to his 'regular' concerts. Appearing with Lee will be ‘Wicked’ star ASHLEIGH GRAY; Musical Director, multi-instrumentalist & record producer, MASON NEELY; and West End MD, musical arranger and pianist, WILL STUART.

Doors apparently open at 7pm but the show does not start until 8.30pm (to allow time for people to finish eating). There will be 2 x 45 minute sets plus a 20 minute interval - plus any encores - so it should finish by 10.30/10.45pm.

Booking line is 0845 6027017.

Wish I could go!

It was an amazing night last Saturday, worth the travel from Sheffield.

Great news that Lee has landed his first regular TV role

Here's another article on the Casualty role - nothing new but worth posting for the photo

http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2013-...ty-on-casualty

Lee is going to be a very busy lad for a while - five more concerts to do this September; a 'cruise with the celebrities' gig with the West End Men on P & O's Ventura in early October before starting rehearsals/filming with Casualty; break from filming for panto with Nigel Havers and Bobby Davro in December/January; and then back to the Casualty set for more filming with a little interlude in April for his gig at Littlecote House.

Hope Lee has plenty of energy!

Here' a recent interview with Lee in which he talks a bit about his new role in Casualty:

http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/wha...-civic-6103052

Apparently Lee starts filming in two or three weeks but won't appear on-screen until March 2014. He has signed up with the programme for a year so filming commitments mean that his planned fourth album and 'big' concert tour has been pushed back to 2015.

Very quiet on the thread in recent months!

To wake the thread up a bit, here is a video of Lee's recent performance at the Salvation Army's Christmas concert at the Royal Albert Hall:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMz_xGzNuX0

Also, Lee is hoping to do a handful of Sunday concerts next year (his only official day off from Casualty). The first concert to be announced is at the Queen's Theatre in Barnstaple, North Devon on 1 June 2014. Details here:
