Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
American actor Rob Lowe has announced a date at Brighton Dome on 16 February 2019. The new date will follow on from his date at London’s Royal Festival Hall on 1 December 2018.
Following a sell-out US run, Lowe is set to bring his one man show, Stories I Only Tell My Friends: Live to London this winter for one night only. He’ll then head to Brighton in February 2019 for a night at the Brighton Dome.
Inspired by the success of his two New York Times best-selling memoirs, Stories I Only Tell My Friends and Love Life, Rob promises an honest, hilarious, all-new, peak behind the curtain at Hollywood, fame, fatherhood, marriage, and a life lived at the forefront of culture for four decades.
