Joanna Lumley to hit the road in It's All About Me tour

Have your say

Joanna Lumley's "fabulous" new tour is coming to Blackpool

It's All About Me, in which the actress will discuss adventures from her career and "recount some never heard before stories", kicks off in October next year.

The Ab Fab star, 71, said: "The thought of this tour... 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."

Lumley will be joined on stage by friend and producer Clive Tulloh, who will put questions from the audience to her.

The 30-date tour, which begins on 6 October at Belfast's Waterfront Hall, includes dates in Glasgow, Blackpool, Sheffield, Leeds, London and Brighton.
