The album also features an array of collaborations with stars from around the world including James Corden, Michael Bublé, Sebastián Yatra, Barry Manilow and Avishai Cohen.

The tour will take inspiration from the orchestral and big band music which captured Gary’s imagination as a child and eventually led to his new album of original compositions. A true showman at heart, Gary is famed for his engaging and energetic live shows which enthral audiences everywhere he goes.
