Gary Barlow to perform in Oxfordshire

Take That's front man announced as the first headline act for the Nocturne series of Concerts at Blenheim Palace next year

Superstar singer-songwriter Gary Barlow is the first artist announced for next year’s Nocturne Live concert series, which returns to Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire from June 14th to 17th 2018. Closing the event on Sunday 17th June, Barlow will perform music from across his varied back catalogue including a selection of Take That’s greatest hits alongside songs from his chart-topping solo albums.

As both a lynchpin of Take That and a hugely successful solo performer, Barlow has written 14 number one singles and 24 top ten hits, selling over 50 million records as well as being a six-time recipient of an Ivor Novello Award.  He has also co-written and produced music for other renowned artists including Dame Shirley Bassey, Sir Elton John and Robbie Williams. Barlow’s last solo record ‘Since I Saw You Last’ sold more than 600,000 copies and was the ninth biggest selling album that year.  In more recent years, Barlow has also turned his attention to the world of theatre, composing the score for the hugely successful production ‘Finding Neverland’, working alongside screenwriter Tim Firth to write the music and lyrics for musical ’The Girls’ and also working alongside his Take That band mates to produce ‘The Band’, a record breaking musical featuring the music of Take That.

Barlow 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.

Gary Barlow commented: “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. 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.”
