Speaking about the tour John said: "I had so much fun on my summer tour, bringing my husband Scott and my parents along for the ride, while celebrating 30 years on stage and performing some of my favourite songs from that time.

"It’s been great to get back into the studio recording new Christmas tracks. I love this time of the year, but this is the first time I’ve put together a full album of Christmas and festive music for the most fabulous time of the year.

"I cannot wait to be back out there meeting more fans during this festive Christmas tour."
