… And the dream goes on!
Fans attending John Barrowman’s ‘You Raise Me Up’ tour in May 2015 were treated to supporting performances from Miel de Botton on seven dates around the UK, starting in Southend, Essex and finishing up in Blackpool on 29th May 2015!
Miel joined John Barrowman at the following performances:
- 16-May Southend, Cliffs Pavilion.
- 17-May Nottingham, Royal Concert Hall.
- 19-May Liverpool, Philharmonic Hall.
- 20-May Sheffield, City Hall.
- 22-May Manchester, Bridgewater Hall.
- 24-May London, Palladium.
- 29-May Blackpool, Opera House.
Fans in attendance were treated to the romantic sounds of Paris in spring as Miel performed songs in both French and English from her debut album ‘Magnetic’. With 18 songs in total, ‘Magnetic’ features self-penned English songs whilst ‘Magnetique’ contains both original and classic French chansons, some of which are radically reinterpreted.
The dynamic between Miel and John was established from the very first show as John told the audience that ‘Miel would be looking after the heart and soul, whilst he would look after all the other body parts!’
A particular highlight for Miel on the tour was performing in her home city of London on 22nd May at the London Palladium, a venue to which all performers aspire. The evening was indeed a very special night as Miel was warmly greeted by the 2,000+ guests in attendance. After a brief introduction fans were treated to live versions of ‘Beautiful You’, ‘Dazzle Me Diamond’ and a particularly beautiful version of ‘Magnetic’, the title track from her newly released debut album.
Miel’s Tour Setlist:
- La Java Bleue
- Dazzle Me Diamond
- Come on Baby
- Beautiful You
- Je ne Regrette Rien
- Vivement La Joie
Miel is delighted to have supported John on his first tour of the UK in four years and said, ‘It was truly fantastic to have shared the stage with John Barrowman. He was an amazing showman, entertainer, singer and dancer. I feel so lucky, and can’t wait for my next tour!!’
So far 2015 has been a truly unforgettable year for Miel; a year that has already seen her perform at the Aldwych Theatre and at the Southbank Centre’s Purcell Room, be featured in the Evening Standard, You Magazine and The Telegraph, and this spring she released her album ‘Magnetic’ produced by Andy Wright (Simply Red, Eurythmics, Jeff Beck, Imelda May).

Magnetic is now available to order from iTunes and Amazon.
Due to unforeseen circumstances and extensive line-up of events in the UK, Miel de Botton has been forced to postpone her US performance dates until 2016.
