Michael is a hugely successful concert artist; he has performed many times in theatres and venues across the UK as well as Australia, the US and the Far East.  His many television shows have included Michael Ball, An Evening With Michael Ball, The Michael Ball Show and, for BBC Radio 2, Ball Over Broadway, Michael Ball’s Sunday Brunch and the 2012 six part series, Songwriting Partnerships.

In August 2007 Michael made his BBC Proms debut with An Evening With Michael Ball at the Royal Albert Hall which marked the first time a musical theatre star had been given a solo concert at the classical music festival.  Michael also performed at the 10th anniversary concert of Les Miserables at the Royal Albert Hall and the show’s 25th anniversary concert at the 02 Arena.

Michael co-presented the Olivier Awards in 2011 and 2012 with Imelda Staunton (who played Mrs Lovett to Michael’s Sweeney Todd in the wildly successful Chichester and West End productions of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street).
