GARY BARLOW announced this morning that he will take centre stage in Killarney next year as he embarks on a solo tour of the UK and Ireland.

The tour kicks off in April 2018 and sees Gary play 33 dates in 24 intimate venues, including the INEC on Saturday, May 12.

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! “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,” said Gary of his forthcoming tour. ‘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.”

Gary 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 O2 London, Birmingham LG Arena, Glasgow The SSE Hydro and Manchester Arena.
