Gary Barlow is an award-winning British singer-songwriter who’s topped the UK Albums and Singles charts as both a solo musician and as lead singer and songwriter of super-selling pop group Take That. He's sold over 50million records worldwide.
Barlow was originally found by Take That mastermind Nigel Martin-Smith, who decided to base the whole of Take That around Barlow’s talents. The group instantly found success, hitting #2 with their 1992 debut ‘Take That and Party’, and #1 with every album after that.
Kicking off his solo career in 1996, Barlow had big expectations to live up to - and was even described as the ‘next George Michael’. But, Barlow didn’t fail to deliver, and added yet more #1 albums to his collection with 1997 debut 'Open Road'. Going on to record another album, he embarked on massive tours and even later got back with Take That for one of the most illustrious series of live shows of modern music history.
In 2012 he returned with brand new solo album ‘Sing’, and hit #1 once again, marking his return to music. 'Since I Saw You Last' came in 2013, followed by extensive touring the year after.
Fans now await the release of a new album, but until that's announced, they can read his new book, 'A Better Me', set for release in October 2017, and see him in concert throughout 2018 on his massive solo tour, including newly announced dates in Cornwall as part of the Eden Sessions, plus performances at Blenheim Palace as part of the Nocturne Live series, Hampton Court Palace Festival, Scarborough Open Air Theatre and Sherwood Pines Forest in June.

Went to Gary Barlow at the LG Arena on 8th April, show was so amazing went straight home and booked tickets for 19th! Was not disappointed to see his show twice in such a short space of time, A-Mazing x wish he had played Birmingham more nights, greedy I know, but would have gone again.
From the moment he walked out on stage, Gary Barlow had the audience in the palm of his hand. He remained a true professional showman throughout, while also being down earth and his usual self. He seemed to really enjoy talking to fans and reading their signs/banners.
Two hours of music in a relatively small venue just added to the experience. He played a variety of old and new, slow and upbeat, as well as throwing in some surprises along the way. It was Gary's birthday and we all sang to him â€“ with Peter Kay making a guest appearance! Definitely one of the highlights of the show!
There is sooo much more to Gary Barlow than Take That. His show at the Hammersmith Apollo proved hands down that he is just as good a performer on his own as he is with his Take That mates.
Undoubtedly the brains behind Take That, Gary performs songs he wrote for the boyband as well as a few select songs from his solo albums. We are treated to hits like Patience and Greatest Day, as well as covers of classics like Ive Got You Under My Skin Van Morrison's Moondance. What I love about Gary is his ability to be so down to earth too, he brings humour to the show, occasionally joking about himself and showing us pictures of his younger days.
