Gary Barlow to embark on solo UK tour in 2018

12Oct - by MarthaCobb

Gary Barlow is set to go solo once again as he embarks on a 2018 one-man tour.

There’s no need for Take That fans to worry though, as they’ve already pencilled-in plans for a greatest hits tour in late 2018, following their current tour, which finishes its run on November 30.

However, it looks like Gary’s tour will be anything but Take That-esque in scale, with the singer playing a series intimate shows across 24 venues.

The 34-date tour will kick-f on April 16 at Edinburgh Playhouse, before embarking across the country and hitting places such as Manchester’s O2 Apollo and London’s Palladium.

Gary last toured as a solo artist following the release album Since I Saw You Last four years ago, and said this new run: “I had such a lot 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 it all too. I’m also really looking forward to playing in a couple cities I’ve never played before as well as getting a chance to meet the fans there.”

Last month, the star teased that Take That could embark on a “big” greatest hits tour in 2018/19 following the release a new collection their biggest tunes.

“It’s a greatest hits tour, so I think we’re actually planning a world tour for that,” Gary said. “We’ve just got to get it past the wives, the last hurdle now.

“We’ve done the planning, and the agents, promoters. It’s just one last hurdle. It’s a big hurdle.”
