Sylvester Stallone is set to hit the stage in London for a one-man show, which will culminate in a question-and-answer session with fans in the audience.

The Rocky star will appear at the fabled London Palladium this week (11Jan14).

He tells the Daily Mirror, "I love to tell stories. It is that drive that made me go behind the curtain, behind the scenes, to see how things are accomplished, watching from both sides of the biggest box office hits.

"I am a people person and I am really very open. I really like the idea of letting the audience ask questions, to give them that opportunity and to give very specific answers. I like the idea of talking about your life, the journey that made you what you are. I think a lot of people may identify with this and think, 'Wow, he did it, why can't I?'."

British Tv personality Jonathan Ross will host the show, titled An Evening with Sylvester Stallone at the London Palladium.
