Take That star Gary Barlow has delighted fans with the announcement of a new solo tour for summer 2021.
Singer and songwriter Gary will head out across the UK on his Music Played by Humans tour including a huge homecoming gig to Manchester’s newly-named AO Arena on 12th June 2021.
Kicking off in Liverpool on 2nd June 2021, Gary will hit the road with a full orchestra, playing 15 shows in 13 cities around the UK and Ireland.
He’ll bring to life songs from his brand new album, Music Played By Humans, as well as hits from his three-decade spanning music career with Take That and as a solo artist. He will be joined by special guest, Beverley Knight, at the live gigs.
Gary announced earlier this week the news of his first solo album in seven years which is set for release on 27th November.
The first single, out now, is the catchy Latin pop fusion track Elita with Michael Bublé and Sebastián Yatra.
The album features an array of collaborations with stars from around the world including James Corden, Michael Bublé, Sebastián Yatra, Barry Manilow, Chilly Gonzales, Alesha Dixon, Beverley Knight, Ibrahim Maalouf and Avishai Cohen.
Music Played By Humans – The Tour, will take inspiration from the orchestral and big band music which captured Gary’s imagination as a child and eventually led to his new album of original compositions. A true showman at heart, Gary is famed for his engaging and energetic live shows which enthral audiences wherever he goes.
“I love performing,” said Gary, “I’ve missed it so much. I’m excited to think about how the new songs on the album will sound live and with an audience! I’m just really looking forward to getting out there and seeing everyone again.”
