Gary Barlow, known for his successful career in the boyband Take That and other ventures is coming to York this summer. The singer, songwriter, composer, and producer will bring his critically acclaimed one-man show to York, it was announced yesterday.
Gary’s tale is told theatrically in his own words in A Different Stage. Gary will tell the story of his life while performing music from his extensive career. Gary is best known as a member of the pop band Take That, with whom he has won eight BRIT Awards and sold over 45 million records.
Gary and Tim Firth, a long-time friend and collaborator, collaborated on A Different Stage. It had its world premiere at The Brindley in Runcorn, Cheshire, and has since been seen by sold-out crowds in Salford, Liverpool, and Edinburgh.
Gary’s one-man show promises to take the audience behind the curtain in a project, unlike anything he’s ever done before, with nothing off-limits in this one-of-a-kind performance.
On Friday, 10th June and Saturday, 11th June, 2022, Gary Barlow will be performing his show A Different Stage at Grand Opera House York.
Gary has also announced his West End debut at the London’s Duke of York’s Theatre in August, and a new run of shows around the UK – which includes York.
“I’ve done shows where it has just been me and a keyboard,” said Gary. “I’ve done shows where I sit and talk to people. I’ve done shows where I’ve performed as part of a group.
“But this one, well, it’s like all of those, but none of them. When I walk out this time, it’s going to be a very different stage altogether.”
