Take That’s Gary Barlow to the Grand Theater in Wolverhampton for four nights

Gary Barlow

The Take That star today announced additional dates for A Different Stage, his solo theatrical show telling his story, in his words.

A different stage premiered at Brindley, the award-winning theater in Runcorn, Cheshire, in February to a rousing reception from its delighted fans. It has since played to sold-out audiences in Salford, Liverpool and Edinburgh and announced its West End debut at the Duke of York’s Theater in London in August.

Today Barlow confirmed the dates in Wolverhampton at the Grand Theater from November 17-20. Tickets go on sale this Friday, May 13 at 9:30 a.m.

Created by Barlow and his longtime friend and collaborator Tim Firth, A Different Stage sees Gary recount his life’s journey alongside music from his incredible discography.

In a project unlike anything he’s ever done before, he’ll take the audience behind the curtain, with nothing forbidden in this special performance.

Barlow said, “Now I’ve done shows where it was just me and a keyboard. I’ve done shows where I sit and talk to people. I’ve done shows where I’ve played as part of a band. But this one, well, it’s like all of those, but none of them. When I come out this time, it will be a very different stage.

The performer is one of Britain’s most celebrated songwriters and record producers. As a member of Take That, he won eight Brit Awards and sold over 45 million records. Apart from his accomplishments with Take That, he has also co-written and produced music for other high profile artists including Dame Shirley Bassey, Sir Elton John and Robbie Williams.

In recent years, Barlow has also dabbled in the world of theatre, composing the score for the hit production of Finding Neverland, working alongside Tim Firth on Calendar Girls The Musical and collaborating with Tim Firth and fellow bandmates Take. That on The Band, a record-breaking musical currently being adapted into a feature film.
