Alfie Bow is widely regarded as one of the best performers to take on the role of Jean Valjean.

Producer Cameron Mackintosh said: “The spectacular world arena tour of the Les Misérables concert has been a dream of mine for many years. With Les Mis’ 40th phenomenal year starting this October, there couldn’t be a better time for it to happen.

“With the Les Misérables movie now being re-released in cinemas across the world in its completely remixed digital glory, sounding and looking better than ever, and with the London and North American productions still regularly breaking attendance records, Les Misérables is a true phenomenon – The People’s Musical – and the only musical ever to be simultaneously a hit on stage, screen and in concert arenas.”

The arena tour will have an extraordinary new design specifically created for arenas (and large theatres) with audiences of between 3,000 and 5,000. This spectacular production will also feature a core cast with a great number of celebrated Les Mis guest stars appearing as their schedules allow.

The production continues to play at the Sondheim Theatre in London where it will soon enter its 40th year.
