Following his 2 critically acclaimed solo shows at the Hall in 2011, Gary Barlow will return to the Royal Albert Hall on Tuesday 27 November as part of his Gary Barlow: In Concert tour.
Barlow will be performing songs spanning the entirety of his incredible music career. He says:
“I’m really excited about these dates. Playing live is my favourite thing and I haven’t played a solo show for over a year now. Last year playing two London shows was brilliant, we all had such a good time, so I thought right let’s get out and see the rest of the country!”
After 20 years in the business, over 50 million records sold, eight #1 albums, fourteen #1 singles, seven million concert tickets sold and six Ivor Novello Awards, Gary Barlow is regarded as one of Britain’s most successful singer songwriters and is best known as being part of one of the biggest British bands of all time, Take That.
Gary was recently awarded an OBE in the Queen’s birthday honours list for his huge contribution to British music as well as his significant charitable endeavours. He is currently head judge on the UK’s No 1 show The X Factor for the second year running.
Gary Barlow at the Hall
The singer performed in his first solo concerts in over 11 years at the Hall on 5 & 6 December 2011, headlining two special concerts in aid of The Prince’s Trust and The Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry.
Support at these sold-out shows came from singer-songwriter sisters The Pierces, and special appearances on the night from Jason Donovan, Lulu and Olly Murs made them nights to remember for the lucky ticket holders. Most importantly, the concerts raised an estimated £400,000 for the young people supported by the charities involved.
Barlow also recently appeared at the Hall as part of the Classic BRIT Awards on 2 October 2012 performing Sing, the song he wrote with Andrew Lloyd Webber to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee.
