FORMER Wet Wet Wet frontman Marti Pellow will play Inverness Ironworks next April.

Promoter Regular Music has just announced that the Ironworks date on Saturday, April 16 joins two other dates that week in Glasgow, Dundee and Edinburgh.

These Greatest Hits shows follow a sell-out tour planned for November.

Marti said: “I am bowled over with the demand for our sold-out November tour. As a thank you to fans and due to this demand we are delighted to be adding an April tour of Scotland to take in Dundee, Inverness

and Edinburgh places that we didn’t make it to in November, as well as another show

in Glasgow.”

Tickets for the dates will go on sale on Friday (July 9) from 10am on www.ticketmaster.co.uk

Also you can call on: 0844 844 0444.

Marti also revealed to fans that it was their support and pleas that helped to persuade him to add more dates.

“Throughout lockdown I was inundated by beautiful messages from fans asking me to please organise a tour once we come out of these terrible times.

“Twelve million people tuned in for the lockdown sessions and each one of you have inspired me to make this tour happen this year.

'I can't wait to sing these songs'

“I finally wanted to put together a show that would celebrate all the wonderful music throughout my career and that I – and I know all of you - fell in love with again through the sessions.

“All through lockdown, when I could only communicate with my fans through my social media platforms, you – the fans - would ask me to sing songs from the beginning of my career right up to the present day.

“It was a joy to get such great feedback from everyone and got me thinking about a greatest hits tour, where we could all enjoy those songs again and where I could enjoy singing them.

“During the sessions I also got to cover songs from other songwriters that were either favourites of mine, or had been suggested by you all. I think they resonated with everyone so much that I’m looking forward to including some of them in the shows. And of course not forgetting my new album Stargazer that came out in March, where I finally got to write the songs that let me pay homage to all my heroes.

“I can’t wait to sing those songs live for the first time.

“You spoke and I listened. This brand new Greatest Hits tour is about finally being able to come together to celebrate love, life, and remember those we may have lost along the way.

“Most of all, it’s about enjoyment and celebrating the here and now. Get your dancing shoes on – it’s time to party with Marti!”

Extra tickets have also just been added to the Aberdeen Music Hall gig on Thursday, November 11.
