Gareth Gates to star in UK tour of 60s musical Hair

Gareth Gates has been named in the cast of 60s rock musical Hair, which is set to go on tour next year.

Those booking Liverpool hotels can see the production open at the city's Empire on Monday April 9th before it goes on the road for four months.

Writing on Twitter, Gates said: "Yes, I'm playing Claude in Hair. So excited! I'm doing it because it's completely different to anything else I've done."

The production is set in New York City in the 1960s and shows how Claude and the 'tribe' of hippies are living out a bohemian lifestyle and are trying to avoid being sent to fight in the Vietnam war.

Along with his pop career, which gave him number one hits with Unchained Melody, Anyone of Us and Spirit in the Sky, Gates has a number of stage credits, including appearances in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Les Miserables.
