Following string of summer festival dates, Jason Donovan is preparing to take to the road with his own tour.

He first appeared on our screens in daytime soap opera Neighbours, before a successful 80s pop career and later in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. Busier than ever, Jason Donovan likes nothing more than time with his family: “There’s nothing better than Sunday lunch with family, whether we’re at home, in the country or in Byron Bay, it’s the perfect moment.”

After a series of festival dates this summer, he will embark upon a 34-date tour – Jason Donovan & His Amazing Midlife Crisis Tour – this autumn. Sharing the story of his 40-year career, Jason is excited by the new format of the show. “It’s an opportunity for people to ask me questions,” he says. “I turn 50 next year and it’s a great moment to look back and reflect on life so far.”

Jason says he feels lucky to have had his career. Although just 20 when pop stardom hit, Jason had already been acting for almost a decade, having appeared on Australian series Skyways in 1980, and Neighbours six years later.

“I always say, ‘The good news is I’m Jason Donovan. The bad news is I’m Jason Donovan,’ and getting directors to see beyond the loincloth of Joseph is a challenge. However, if I hadn’t gone into musicals, I wouldn’t have met my wife and had my family, and there’s more to life than my career.”

Today, Jason takes care of his health and is in great shape. “I’m Australian and we are an incredibly active nation. We love being outdoors and have a strong desire to stay fit and well.”
