The Even More Good Reasons Tour will hit the Music Hall in the Granite City on Saturday, November 13. Originally slated for last year, Covid restrictions meant the tour – which celebrates the 30th anniversary of Jason's debut album Ten Good Reasons – had to be postponed until 2021/22.

Jason said:“I’m ecstatic the tour is finally under way.

"We’ve had to reschedule the dates a number of times, so to be actually making plans at last is really exciting.

"I literally can’t wait to get on the road again. My wife can’t wait for me to get on the road again either!

"Having lived through two productions, one as a producer (Priscilla, Queen of the Desert), one as a performer (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat) in recent months, I’m really aware of how difficult it has been for the live sector. I was always positive that once things started to move towards a sense of what we knew before, that people would naturally want to share in that experience of a live show once again.

"It has been overwhelming and emotional to see people celebrating life. I’d like to think that live shows are a bit of therapy out of the last 18 months. And it’s always great to revisit times when life was much simpler, so I hope people will come along and do just that! Roll on October!"

Jason’s music from the peak of his chart career brings back happy memories for much of his audience, who will look back on the 80s and 90s as the best days of their lives. However, it’s not just about nostalgia – it’s about sharing those moments where, in a world of uncertainty, music can make you feel so “happy together”.

His debut album Ten Good Reasons spent a month at Number 1 and was the biggest selling album of the year in 1989, shifting 1.5 million copies. Sophomore effort Between the Lines peaked at Number 2; his Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat album was a chart-topper in 1991; and a Greatest Hits the same year also went Top 10.

Even More Good Reasons promises to be an emotional, exuberant night fans will never forget.
