Gary Barlow announces Forest gigs

Gary Barlow is the first artist to be announced as part of Forest Live 2018.

Gary Barlow is a British singer-songwriter and record producer who found worldwide fame as a member of British pop group Take That. Since forming in 1989 Take That have won eight BRIT awards, sold over 45 million records and over eight million concert tickets.

Gary is one of Britain’s most successful songwriters, having written 14 Number One singles as well as being a six-time recipient of an Ivor Novello Award.  Aside from his achievements with Take That, he has also co-written and produced music for other renowned artists including Dame Shirley Bassey, Sir Elton John and Robbie Williams. Gary’s last solo record ‘Since I Saw You Last’ sold more than 600,000 copies. Gary 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.

Commenting on the dates Gary Barlow said, “I’m really looking forward to these gigs. I’ve never played Forest Live before so I hope to see you there.”

Gary Barlow will be supported by Jason Brock, a new hot emerging UK talent whose name is soon to be on everyone’s lips as he stakes his claim on the music scene. Jason reached the final of the BBC show Let it Shine, where his audition of Whitney’s ‘Run To You’ went viral. His vocal has also featured on the 2017 dance hit PYT (Pretty Young Thing) by DJ John Gibbons, mounting a whopping 45 million streams.
