On Oct. 15, 2013, Gary Barlow announced on his official Internet outlets that two concerts have been added to his 2014 U.K. tour. The added dates at Phones 4u Arena in Manchester on April 14, 2014 and Capital FM Arena in Nottingham on April 17, 2014. Tickets for these two concerts go on sale on Oct. 18, 2013.
Barlow, who is a founding member and chief songwriter of Take That, is touring in support of his third solo album, "Since I Saw You Last," which is due for a release in Europe on Nov. 25, 2013. The album's first single is "Let Me Go."
As previously reported, Barlow has confirmed reports that 2013 is his last year as a judge on "The X Factor" U.K., which will probably name his replacement in 2014. Barlow joined the show's judging panel in 2011.
Before he officially announced his departure from "The X Factor" U.K., Barlow had hinted that 2013 would be his last year with the show when he announced that he would be busy doing a new Take That album in 2014, which would be followed by a Take That tour. Barlow says he does not know yet of Robbie Williams will be part of the next Take That album and tour. Williams has been an on-again/off-again member of Take That since the group was formed in 1990.
