Take That's Gary Barlow has just announced a solo UK and Ireland tour with 33 dates across 24 venues.

He will play one date at Dublin's Bord Gais Energy Theatre on Thursday May 10 and INEC Killarney on Saturday May 12, 2018.

The tour will see him playing smaller venues, something he says he's looking forward to because it brings him "so much closer to the fans".

"The audience always seem to love the intimacy of it all too. I’m also really looking forward to playing in a couple of cities I’ve never played before as well as getting a chance to meet the fans there," he says.

Gary last toured as a solo artist in 2014 and his last solo record Since I Saw You Last sold 600,000 copies.

Tickets for his Irish dates go on sale on Friday October 20 at 10am.
