Musical legend Gary Barlow has announced two solo concert dates in Sheffield as part of a 2018 nationwide tour.
The Take That star will embark on a 34-date UK tour in April - including two dates at Sheffield City Hall next June.
The tour will see Gary play intimate venues across the UK and Ireland including some never visited before. The last time Gary played a string of venues this size, demand was so high he could have sold certain venues out six times over!
He said: "I had such a lot of fun back in 2013 when I played those smaller venues because you’re so much closer to the fans’"
"The audience always seem to love the intimacy of it all too. I’m also really looking forward to playing in a couple of cities I’ve never played before as well as getting a chance to meet the fans there.’"
Gary last toured as a solo artist in 2014 to acclaim from fans and critics alike, playing some of the biggest venues he had ever played as a solo artist including The O2 London, Birmingham LG Arena, Glasgow The SSE Hydro and Manchester Arena.
Since forming in 1989, Take That have won eight BRIT awards, sold over 45 million records and over eight million concert tickets.
Gary is one of Britain’s most successful songwriters, having written 14 number one singles as well as being a six-time recipient of an Ivor Novello Award.
Aside from his achievements with Take That, he has also co-written and produced music for other renowned artists including Dame Shirley Bassey, Sir Elton John and Robbie Williams.
Gary’s last solo record ‘Since I Saw You Last’ sold more than 600,000 copies and was the ninth biggest selling album that year.
In more recent years, Gary has also turned his attention to the world of theatre, composing the score for the hugely successful production ‘Finding Neverland’, working alongside screenwriter Tim Firth to write the music and lyrics for musical ’The Girls’ and also working alongside his Take That band mates to produce ‘The Band’ a record breaking musical featuring the music of Take That.
Singer songwriter KT Tunstall has also been announced as special guest support from the start of the tour and up to and including Nottingham.
