Will Young will launch his first spoken word tour in 2020. The artist, performer, and activist will discuss his life experiences with his followers all over the UK.

The show and tell tour will be seeing him speak openly about mental health, pop, gay equality, and his career.

That includes an evening at Kingston Upon Thames ‘ Rose Theatre on 4th October 2020.

His autumn tour follows the publication of his first book ‘ To Be A Gay Man, ‘ published in May.

His career began in 2001 with Pop Idol, with his winning track currently still holding the British record for a male pop artist’s fastest-selling single.

Since then he has sold more than 8 million copies, made four albums, won two BRIT Awards and released hits including’ Leave Right Now’ and’ Jealousy.’

His first released book will address homosexual shame and expose the effect that it has had upon his own life, how he came to deal with the issue, and how he can say honestly that he is gay and contented.  He also gives insightful practical advice on the difficulties that the LGBTQ+ community all too often faces.

It will be available on May 14 and can be pre-purchased from Amazon.
