GARY Barlow is to bring his acclaimed one-man show - A Different Stage - back to The Lowry later this year.

A limited run in February was a total sell-out and now the Take That favourite is to give fans another chance to hear about his life and career as A Different Stage goes on tour around the UK following an August run in the West End.

The show will be at The Lowry from Tuesday, October 4 to Saturday, October 8.

Created by Gary and his long-time friend and collaborator Tim Firth, A Different Stage is a highly personal account of Gary's career featuring many of the songs that have made him a household name.

Gary said: "Now I've done shows where it has just been me and a keyboard. I've done shows where I sit and talk to people. I've done shows where I've performed as part of a group. But this one, well, it’s like all of those, but none of them. When I walk out this time, it's going to be a very different stage altogether.”

Tickets go on sale on Friday at 9.30am. Details from
