POPSTAR Gary Barlow will return to the Bournemouth International Centre next summer.

The singer's new solo tour has been announced, with 33 dates at 24 UK venues. He will visit Bournemouth on Friday, June 1.

Tickets for his show at the BIC are due to go on sale at 10am on Friday, October 20.

The Take That frontman said: "I had such a lot of fun back in 2013 when I played those smaller venues because you’re 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."

Barlow last toured as a solo artist in 2014, performing at venues including London's O2 Arena and the Manchester Arena.

In his career so far, he has written 14 number one singles and is a six-time recipient of an Ivor Novello award.

He has also co-written and produced music for artists including Dame Shirley Bassey, Sir Elton John and Robbie Williams.
