Pop icon Marti to kick off tour in Peterborough
Marti Pellow, who became a household name as the frontman of pop band Wet Wet Wet in the 80s and 90s, is to lauch his 2021 “Greatest Hits” tour in Peterborough.
Fresh from the success of his 12th studio album Stargazer in March, the singer has announced a second single and a full UK tour - starting at the New Theatre on November 17.
It will mean a return to the theatre stage in Broadway where packed houses saw him star in Evita in 2013.
Marti said; “Throughout lockdown I was inundated by messages from fans asking me to organise a tour once we come out of these terrible times.
“Twelve million people tuned in for the lockdown sessions and I covered songs that were either fan requests or personal favourites. I’m now looking forward to including some of them in the shows, alongside tracks from my new album Stargazer. I finally got to write the songs that let me pay homage to all my heroes and I can’t wait to perform them live for the first time. Get your dancing shoes on – it’s time to party with Marti!”
Tickets are on sale www.bookingsdirect.com and via a 24 hour ticket hotline on 0844 249 2222.
