Gary Barlow adds extra Belfast date to 2018 solo tour

Gary Barlow has added a second Belfast date to his upcoming solo tour.

The Take That star announced last week he would be hitting the road in 2018 and would include a show at Belfast's Waterfront on Tuesday, May 8.

Tickets for the show swiftly sold out on Friday, but Barlow immediately announced a second date at the venue for Monday, May 7.

Tickets for the new date are on sale now.

The singer also announced a second date at Dublin's BGE Theatre on May 11.

A show was previously confirmed at the venue on May 10, as well as Kilarney's INEC on May 12.

The new UK and Ireland tour will kick off in Edinburgh in April and will include 33 dates in total across 24 'intimate' venues.

 "I had such a lot of fun back in 2013 when I played those smaller venues because you’re so much closer to the fans," Barlow said.

"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."

The singer last toured as a solo artist in 2014 to acclaim from fans and critics alike, playing some of the biggest venues he had ever played as a solo artist including the SSE Arena, Belfast.

He found worldwide fame as a member of Take That, who went on to win eight BRIT awards, sold over 45 million records and over eight million concert tickets.

Gary is also one of Britain’s most successful songwriters, having written 14 Number One singles as well as being a six-time recipient of an Ivor Novello Award.

Aside from his achievements with Take That, he has also co-written and produced music for other renowned artists including Dame Shirley Bassey, Sir Elton John and Robbie Williams.

Gary’s last solo record Since I Saw You Last sold more than 600,000 copies and was the ninth biggest selling album In more recent years.
