Gary Barlow to be centre stage
TAKE THAT SINGER TO PERFORM ‘INTIMATE’ GIG AT SUNDERLAND EMPIRE
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.
