Take That's Gary Barlow will perform a second night at Hampton Court Palace Festival in June 2018, after the first date sold out in under an hour
Gary Barlow has announced a second concert at Hampton Court Palace Festival next year after the first night sold out in under an hour.
The Take That star will perform at Base Court - one of the Tudor courtyards at the palace in Richmond upon Thames, London in the UK - and the phenomenal demand for his appearance at the prestigious event means a second date has already been confirmed.
Tickets for the festival - which is supported by award-winning cruise line Viking - are on sale now, and the event is in its 26th year, with a host of legendary artists set to take to the famous stage before Gary plays on June 19 and 20.
The acts will perform at the 3,000-seat auditorium in Base Court, set against the backdrop of Henry VIII's magnificent Tudor Palace.
Stephen Flint Wood, Managing Director of Arts & Entertainment, IMG said: "We are absolutely thrilled to announce our first acts as part of a stellar line-up for Hampton Court Palace Festival 2018.
"Watching some of the world's greatest musicians within the idyllic setting of one of the Historic Royal Palaces is the perfect way to spend a summer's evening."
Kicking off the run will be guitarist and singer songwriter Joe Bonamassa on June 12, while Jools Holland is expected to bring the energy and classic songs from his time performing with his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra when he arrives on June 14.
Meanwhile, iconic group The Beach Boys will follow on the 15th and 16th, boasting timeless hits like 'Good Vibrations' and 'God Only Knows' in their impressive catalogue.
