GARY Barlow's All The Hits Tour is coming to the North-East just before Christmas this year.

The singer-songwriter will play Utilita Arena Newcastle on Saturday, December 18 with special guest Leona Lewis.

Kicking off in Belfast on November 27, Gary will hit the road to play 16 shows in 14 cities around the UK and Ireland.

He will be performing all the hits from his three-decade career and bring to life songs from his latest album Music Played By Humans.

Take That frontman Gary will be joined by very special guest, Leona Lewis.

“I’m so happy to have Leona join the tour, she’s such a talented singer,” said Gary.

“I’ve missed performing so much, I’m just really looking forward to getting out there and seeing everyone again.

"I’m excited to think about how the new songs on the album will sound live and with an audience. I can’t wait to see you all!”

“I am overjoyed to be invited to join Gary Barlow on what’s set to be an incredible tour,” said Leona.

“I am a huge fan of Gary’s and I can’t wait to share the stage with him and bring back the magic of a live show! I’ve missed performing so much and am counting down the days until I can be back on the stage singing with my fans who have continued to be amazing throughout this crazy year.

"See you soon!"

Gary Barlow’s latest album Music Played By Humans, rocketed up the charts on its release last year, to score his third Number 1 solo album.
