Bangor Mail - - NEWS - Ly­dia Mor­ris

BRI­TAIN’S Got Ta­lent star Gruffydd Wyn has an­nounced some “big news”.

The 22-year-old singing sen­sa­tion from Aml­wch re­vealed he will be go­ing on tour in 2019.

Gruff, who went straight through to the semi-fi­nal of BGT af­ter judge Amanda Holden hit her golden buzzer, came fourth in the tense fi­nal of the world’s big­gest ta­lent show in June.

Now, three months af­ter his suc­cess on the show, he is vis­it­ing a num­ber of Welsh the­atres on his de­but solo tour.

While he is yet to an­nounce when and where the tour will be hap­pen­ing, he told sis­ter pa­per the Daily Post that fans can ex­pect some spe­cial guests at some of the shows.

Gruff, who has been nom­i­nated for a Na­tional Re­al­ity TV Award fol­low­ing his in­cred­i­ble stint on the show, re­vealed how it all came about.

“Rhy­dian, who was on the X Fac­tor a few years ago, ran­domly con­tacted me about a month ago. He said he he’d seen my au­di­tion and that he had loved it and he wanted to help me out.

“He put me in con­tact with the right peo- ple, and now I’m or­gan­is­ing a tour for next year. “It was to­tally un­ex­pected. “I can’t tell you much at the mo­ment, it’s still very early days but I am ex­pect­ing to an­nounce all dates and venues in the com­ing weeks.

“And I can tell you there will be some peo­ple per­form­ing with me.

“It will be a tour just around Wales for now - I’m go­ing for a small Welsh tour to start off with.

“I like a lot of dif­fer­ent venues around Wales for dif­fer­ent rea­sons, but I would like to per­form at the Prin­ci­pal­ity Sta­dium - it’s one of those places every­body wants to per­form at and of course, it’s the big­gest sta­dium in the coun­try.

“I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to it, there are some re­ally ex­cit­ing times ahead for me.”

The Aml­wch singer made the an­nounce­ment yes­ter­day on his Face­book page.

He wrote: “BIG NEWS... Very ex­cited to an­nounce that I’ll be go­ing on tour in 2019! All dates and venues will be an­nounced in the com­ing weeks!”

Within hours, more than 400 fans had liked his post - with fans from across the other side of the world ask­ing him to per­form in Aus­tralia and Canada.

He added: “When I went for my au­di­tion, I never ex­pected I would be here to­day, although it was al­ways some­thing I wanted.

“I am get­ting used to it a lot more now and I’m en­joy­ing ev­ery mo­ment. It’s my job now I sup­pose, so I’m just en­joy­ing my­self.

“It’s been a fan­tas­tic year for me this year - I’ve got a lot of per­for­mances com­ing up now un­til the end of the year, so I’m look­ing for­ward to spend­ing some time with my fam­ily at Christ­mas.”
