Multi-award-winning actor Darren Criss is coming to the London Palladium for a concert on October 15.

Criss’s credits include The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story (picking up a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie in the process), as well as Glee, where he played the role of fan favorite Blaine Anderson.

The performer rose to fame as a founding member of Chicago-based StarKid Productions, taking on the lead role and co-penning A Very Potter Musical, which became an instant internet hit. Since then, screen credits have included Royalties, Muppets Haunted Mansion, and Hollywood.

Criss made his Broadway debut in the revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, taking over from Daniel Radcliffe in the hit production. He also performed at the 57th Presidential Inauguration for President Obama.

He is now set to make his West End concert debut. Taking place at The London Palladium in the West End, Criss will be performing hit tunes from across his career with his own four-piece band and special guests, StarKid’s Lauren Lopez and Joey Richter.

Tickets go on sale September 29. LW Theatres will have a pre-sale on September 28.
