John recently returned from Broadway where he reprised his role as Jean Valjean in Les Misérables.
He subsequently appeared in Les Misérables Dubai, and has also appeared in a critically-acclaimed production of The Hired Man at Cadogan Hall, London this year. A busy man, as ever!
His latest album Rise was released in March 2015, heralding an incredibly busy year of concert appearances, in which he appeared on tour with Kathryn Jenkins, went back into his legendary role as The Phantom for a limited season at Her Majesty's Theatre, made numerous concert appearances in his own right, played the role of Pirelli in the English National Opera's production of Sweeney Todd at The Coliseum in London, and appeared at The Royal Albert Hall as part of Bryn Terfel's birthday celebrations.
This incredibly hard-working artist always has plenty of dates in his diary, and if you can get to see him in concert we thoroughly recommend that you do! At The Voice College we call him The Master, (not in the Dr. Who sense, we hasten to add!) because he truly is a master of both singing and acting, and has to be heard 'in real life' in order to be fully appreciated.

John is an award winning and record-breaking West End and Broadway performer best known for his performances as Jean Valjean in Les Miserables and as The Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty’s Theatre, London, having returned to the role in 2010. He initially played the character nearly 1400 times between 2001 and 2005 - more times than any other actor in the show’s 25 year long West End run.
He has played the role of Jean Valjean to great acclaim both in the West End and on Broadway. The New York Times called him "the best Jean Valjean since Colm Wilkinson” and he won the Manchester Evening News Award for Best Actor in a Visiting Production for his performance as Jean Valjean in the 25th anniversary tour of Les Miserables. The Manchester Evening News even went so far as to describe his performance as “a truly astonishing achievement that must be one of the greatest stage performances of all time.” Having seen it, we don't disagree!
He has also been voted the Best Ever Les Miserables Performer and Best Ever Jean Valjean in a worldwide online poll by fans of the show and was part of the Valjean Quartet featured in the finale of the Les Miserables 25th Anniversary Concert at the 02 Arena, London.
