Gary Barlow plus special guest Rumer Ferris & Sylvester
Superstar singer-songwriter Gary Barlow is the first artist announced for next year’s Nocturne Live concert series, which returns to Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire from June 14th to 17th 2018. Closing the series on Sunday 17th June, Barlow will perform music from across his varied back catalogue including a selection of Take That’s greatest hits alongside songs from his chart-topping solo albums.
As a lynchpin of Take That, one Britain’s biggest ever bands, and a hugely successful solo performer, Barlow has written 14 number one singles and 24 top ten hits, won 6 Ivor Novello Awards and sold over 45 million records across the course of a 20-year career. This show will form part of his first solo tour since a sold-out run of dates in 2014.
Joining as a special guest is Rumer. Heavily influenced by Burt Bacharach and blessed with effortless, velvety smooth vocals, British singer/songwriter Rumer harks back to the early-'70s easy listening sounds of Karen Carpenter and Carole King.
Also supporting are hotly tipped duo Ferris & Sylvester
Nocturne is turning The Great Court at Blenheim Palace into a grand arena, as befits the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. We’re inviting world-class acts, building a stage and bringing live music back to the palace after a decade long hiatus. Nocturne can be an all-day affair with VIP dining in the famous State Rooms, a stroll in the palace’s vast grounds or a waterside picnic. It can also be an evening gig for those who just want to buy a ticket to hear their favourite live music, and nothing else.
