The concert stars Peter’s friend and fellow Phantom, Ramin Karimloo alongside other Japanese stars. The venue is the Tokyo International Forum Hall A and there are two shows at 3pm and 7pm.

On top of all this, Peter has been recording a new album. He has been dropping hints in his blog and has just given some more concrete information. It will be an album of songs from musicals, based on his I Love Musicals tour. There will be some duets on the album and Peter has been recording with his West End co-stars Katy Treharne (Phantom of the Opera) and Ma-Anne Dionisio (Miss Saigon). The only confirmed song so far is “Come What May” from “Moulin Rouge” which will be sung with both Katy and Ma-Anne. Peter has hinted that there will be a song or two from “Phantom of the Opera”. The album has had recording session in Stockholm and now New York.
Peter has announced a series of concerts scheduled for October to November. The tour is called I Love Musicals and is a tribute to the best songs from the biggest musicals, shows like Kristina från Duvemåla, Phantom of the Opera, Miss Saigon, Cabaret, Les Misérables and more.
