Gary Barlow annoucement

The singer star has confirmed he will be heading out on the road as a SOLO artist.

Gary Barlow has confirmed he will be heading out on a tour of the UK on his own!

The singer, who has been a member of Take That since they formed in 1990, has long been credited for his gift in song-writing and now he'll be showing his fans what he's made of with his own solo tour.

However, Gary won't be performing in the big arenas like he's done in the past with his bandmates, instead, the famed musician will be opting for smaller, intimate venues that he's never played before.

The tour 'with a difference' will see the Back For Good singer hitting the road across the UK and Ireland next year.

Gary took to Lorraine to announce the big news, and revealed: "I am going on tour. You know me, I love a show, but this is a tour with a difference. I'm going to places around the UK I have never been to."

"We start in the middle of April. So look out we're coming your way! No one is safe!"

This isn't the first time that Gary Barlow has opted to leave Take That behind and head out on the road alone, as he did the same while promoting album Since I Saw You Last he played 18 dates by himself following its 2013 release.

Despite the new tour, Gary Barlow won't be releasing any new solo material. 

Fans needn't worry about the future of Take That though, as it's thought Gary is just taking advantage of the fact the group don't have any big commitments next year, following their mammoth Wonderland Tour this year.

Speaking to The Sun, a source revealed: "Gary loves gigging, it's his passion. With no huge Take That commitments at the start of 2018 he's going on a solo tour. He wants to play theatres and intimate venues rather than arenas."

We can't wait!
