If you're in London tonight make sure you stop by The Pheasantry to catch Aladdin himself in concert!

Yes, Dean John Wilson is starring in his first solo concert since taking the magic carpet to Agrabah and he's bringing some of his co-stars with him!  Joining Dean tonight will be Stephen Rahman-Hughes, Nathan Amzi, Marsha Songcome and Ethan Le Phong so you just know there's going to be some amazing voices on display!

Doors open at 6pm and the show begins at 8pm.  There's still a few tickets left (right here) for the incredibly low price of just £20 so make sure you go if you can, it's going to be a fantastic night!

Wish I could be there myself!  Hope you all have fun!!
