Gary Barlow
The singer has lined up his first solo tour for 13 years beginning next month.

Following the success if his Diamond Jubilee Concert and two solo performances at the Royal Albert Hall in 2011, Gary Barlow has announced his upcoming solo UK tour.

The string of dates, which kick off in November, will mark the Take That frontman's first solo tour for 13 years.

The 16-date tour across the UK and Ireland will start on 13 November at Bournemouth International Centre, the venue for his last solo outing in 1999 during his For The Fans tour. Barlow is set to perform hits from his entire career.

Speaking of his forthcoming gigs the 41-year-old singer said: "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'."

The singer, who is currently on the X Factor judging panel, will juggle his commitments on the ITV talent show with his concert performances.
