But the aim of this tour is for Jon to go against regular convention and desperately try not to be himself to create a show full of love, bubbles and sunshine.

Can a misanthropic leopard change its hate-filled spots? Tickets for the show which starts at 8 p.m. are priced at £13 for adults and £12 for concessions. Call the Burnley Mechanics Ticket Office on 664400 or buy online at
