Aled Jones is hitting the road for a major UK tour, in which he’ll go Full Circle. Fans can prepare to hear him as they’ve never heard him before, during a series of dates the length and breadth of the UK (and at the Palace Theatre Paignton on 31 March 2024).
Aled said: “It’s time to come Full Circle. I’m really excited about this tour. I’ll be telling stories about how it all began, then taking the audience on a journey through my career. There’ll be songs, there’ll be stories, and there’ll be one or two surprises. There’ll also be a book – it’s going to be a very busy 2024 and I can’t wait to get on the road and visit interesting places I’ve never visited before and of course see my wonderful fans.
“There have been some incredible moments – meeting Royalty, playing concert halls all over the world, singing at Bob Geldof and Paula Yates’s wedding – and, of course, recording Walking In The Air, right through to Songs Of Praise and Classic FM.
“The show will be stories and songs from across my career. I’ll be singing some of my favourites, telling some of my stories, and showing previously unseen photographs. Who knows, the audience might even get to ask a few questions.”
Theatre Director, Maureen McAllister says: ‘We are delighted to have been selected as a venue for Aled Jones’ UK tour. Aled is most certainly known by our audiences with his popularity reaching across the generations for both his famous rendition of Walking in the Air to his regular TV appearances over the years. We expect this to be extremely popular and have no doubt that our audiences are in for a fabulous show’.
Aled was the boy treble who captivated the world with his angelic voice. Selling over seven million albums, Aled was the original, classical crossover star. His recording of Walking in the Air, from the animated film The Snowman, firmly established him as a household name and he has become an integral part of the nation’s festivities. Equally at home on the classical stage or starring in musical theatre productions in London West End, his credits include lead roles in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Irving Berlin’s White Christmas. As a singer, Aled is in demand globally and has performed in the world’s most iconic venues, from London’s Royal Albert Hall to the Sydney Opera House. And now he’s getting ready to tell his story during a series of intimate concerts, starting in Spring 2024. Tickets go on sale on September 22, at 10am, at local venues.

Aled is a favourite with the Royal Family and even gave a private performance to King Charles III in Kensington Palace. He is an award-winning television broadcaster and radio presenter who’s interviewed hundreds of A-List stars over the years. He heads up BBC’s Songs of Praise and his own Saturday and Sunday morning shows on Classic FM. Now, after 40 years in the business, he’s looking back on a remarkable career with a one-man show, that will feature never-before-heard music, tales from the decades and for the first time, his story told in his own words. It’s time to come Full Circle.
