Take That singer Gary Bar­low is head­ing to Sun­der­land on a UK tour.

The veteran singer an­nounced this morn­ing he will per­form two dates at the Sun­der­land Em­pire when he em­barks on a UK tour in April 2018.

The Sun­der­land gigs take place on Mon­day April 30, and Tues­day May 1, with tick­ets go­ing on sale from Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 20, at 10am.

The 46-year-old per­former has pre­vi­ously per­formed in two mas­sively-suc­cess­ful gigs with Take That at the Sta­dium of Light in Sun­der­land, but on this tour is play­ing 34 dates to smaller crowds – 24 of them in “in­ti­mate venues”.

He said: “I had such a lot of fun back in 2013 when I played 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.”

A spokesman for JM Concerts said: “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.”

The singer-song­writer and record pro­ducer found world­wide fame as a mem­ber of British pop group Take That. Since form­ing in 1989, Take That have won eight BRIT awards, sold over 45 million records and over eight million con­cert tick­ets.

Tick­ets for the Sun­der­land con­cert in April 2018 go on sale from Oc­to­ber 20, via www.ATGtick­ets.com/Sun­der­land as well as at the Em­pire box of­fice.

GaryBar­low is to per­form as a solo artist in Sun­der­land.
