Damian Lewis has been acting since the 1990s and played the leading role of Bobby Axelrod in the American series Billions which ran from 2016 to 2023.

After starring in various projects including Quentin Tarantino’s 2019 epic blockbuster Once Upon a Time….in Hollywood, Damian decided to pursue a career in music alongside his acting.

He released his debut album ‘Mission Creep’ last summer and the Hollywood star is bringing his live music gig to the city next month.

The actor revealed in an exclusive chat with the Oxford Mail he once raved nearby.

“I have been to Oxford as a long time ago I had friends who were at the university there so I visited then,” said Damian.

“I went to a rave once in Oxford in a field, just outside of Oxford which was a while back.

“I’ve still got friends who live close by so yeah, I love Oxford, it’s a beautiful city.”

The 53-year-old’s love for Oxford played into the actor’s choice to come and perform the standalone gig in the city.

“I just wanted to play at nice venues and places with nice city centres and are on the map,” added Damian. Oxford is a really nice place to come and play because it’s a cool little town centre.”

Damian Lewis will perform at the O2 Academy2 Oxford on Friday, March 22 with tickets priced at £31.60. Ticket information for Damian’s UK Spring tour can be found here.  Order his debut album Mission Creep from his official music store here.
