WET WET WET'S MARTI PELLOW TO PERFORM THE HITS
One of our most loved pop icons, Marti Pellow, will tour the UK in 2018 with The Private Collection Tour, including a date in Swansea. The tour, which comes to Swansea’ Brangwyn Hall on Thursday 17 May 2018, celebrates Pellow's 30 years in the industry, including number 1s and hit singles from his many albums as both a solo artist and with Wet Wet Wet. Tickets will go on sale 20th October
Marti Pellow performed with one of the most successful bands in UK pop history, and is now in that rare position of enjoying a highly successful career as both a solo artist and as a leading musical theatre star. The BRIT and Ivor Novello award-winning singer-songwriter first came to the attention of the British public as the lead singer of Wet Wet Wet. As both a solo artist and with Wet Wet Wet, Marti has had consistent chart-topping multi-platinum albums; with over 25 chart hits and three of the UK’s biggest number-one singles, including: ‘Goodnight Girl’ and the iconic ‘Love Is All Around’- one of the most successful UK hits of all time.
Marti’s platinum-selling solo career has taken him from, his love of working with Willie Mitchell, to Memphis for Moonlight Over Memphis; to iconic Seventies love songs, Love to Love; his highly acclaimed jazz album, Sentimental Me; his tribute to the great songs of Broadway and the West End, Hope, his self-penned country influenced southern-soul album Boulevard of Life, and his 2015 album: Love To Love Volume Two – a string-soaked homage to some of the most romantic love songs ever written.
One of pop music’s leading figures, Marti has built on this career and entered the world of musical theatre. He has performed from Broadway to Tokyo, in sold-out theatre tours and in many starring roles in London’s West End. Last year he toured and then returned to the West End, nominated for What On Stage Awards’ Best Actor as Che in the award-winning smash hit production of Evita.
