Olympia gig on for Barlow

GARY Barlow has lined up his first solo tour in 13 years with dates in Dublin and Belfast.

The Take That star will play an intimate show in the Olympia Theatre, Dublin, on January 7, 2013.

The tour finishes the following night at Belfast's Waterfront Theatre.

The X Factor judge announced 16 shows -- also taking in cities such as London and Manchester -- with songs from his entire career, which he will fit around his TV commitments.

Tickets for the concerts go on sale on Friday.
