Aussie done good, Jason Donovan, is returning to his roots for a solo tour of his debut 5 X Platinum, 1989 album ‘Ten Good Reasons’ and  ‘Greatest Hits’.

Ten Good Reasons became the biggest selling album of 1989 and remains a massive fan favouite with two solo No.1 singles “Too Many Broken Hearts” and “Sealed with a Kiss”. It also featured a duet with Kylie Minogue, “Especially for You”, which reached No.1.

The tour marks a huge step for the 80s heart throb: this is the first time he toured as a solo artist for six years and the first time he has ever toured the ‘Ten Good Reasons’ album.

“The response to the tour has been totally overwhelming,” says Jason. “I have been shocked and humbled by the speed at which these shows sold. Ten Good Reasons’ was life changing for me the first time around and it’s already proving to be life changing again.”

The 80s icon shot to superstardom as the blue-eyed, blonde-haired heartthrob in the Aussie soap Neighbours. In the late 1980s, the UK was in the throes of a serious case of Neighbours fever. The show was watched by 20 million viewers and Jason Donovan became one of the world’s teenage sweethearts alongside fellow Neighbour’s star Kylie Minogue.

Neighbours celebrated 30 years in production this year. Jason Donovan appeared alongside Kylie in a special edition Neighbours 30th: The Stars Reunite, as cast members past and present looked back on the years of Ramsay Street. Jason also became an honorary member of EastEnders when the soap’s cast paid tribute to the antipodean show’s 30th anniversary. 

 As soap’s golden boy, the offers rolled in. Described by the Guinness Book Of Hit Singles as “the top teen idol of the late 1980s”, Jason Donovan was signed to the Stock Aitken Waterman production team and Pete Waterman’s label PWL in the wake of the huge success of fellow “Neighbours” star Kylie Minogue. Jason’s pop career took off when his debut single ‘Nothing Can Divide’ us hit No.5 in the UK in 1988. His follow-up 1988 duet with Kylie, ‘Especially For You’, topped the UK charts and was the first of four No. 1 singles for Donovan.


The tour will see Jason play Ten Good Reasons in its entirety alongside some greatest hits. Jason said: “One of my favourite albums of all time was Peter Gabriel’s So.  When I saw ads recently for a So album tour, I thought what a good idea!  The opportunity to play an album from top to bottom in its true authenticity while giving the fans exactly what they want.   I plan to include some tracks in the second half from periods other than 1989, but the audience will know all the songs.  All in all a great night I hope! “
