Gary Barlow announces plans for charity concerts at Royal Albert Hall
Date Posted: 26/10/11
Take That singer and X Factor judge Gary Barlow has announced that he will play two charity concerts at the Royal Albert Hall later this year.
Fans booking Christmas breaks will be able to see the star supported by the Pierces at the London venue on Monday 5th and Tuesday 6th of December.
The shows will be his first solo dates in the UK in over 11 years, with money raised going towards The Prince's Trust and The Foundation of Prince William and Harry.
Announcing the concerts, Barlow said that it was important to him that disadvantaged young people get the support they need.
"The Prince's Trust along with The Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry are both doing great work with young people and I liked the idea of recognising the work of the whole family. I hope the money raised through these concerts will make a real difference to young lives," he added.
Barlow will also be taking time out of his busy schedule to perform at Weekend Wogan Children in Need, which takes place at the Savoy theatre, London, on Sunday October 30th.
