How special is it that we have a singer songwriter that has a career that spans decades, oh and lets not forget he sang LOVE IS ALL AROUND, a little attempt at sarcasm creeping in there, which stayed at the top of the charts and gave him the longest stay at number 1 for a British artist - what a great accolade to have along with dozens of gold and platinum selling records from all over the world, which sit in a cupboard held open by his Brit award...
Marti Pellow is not a singer songwriter that is about yesterday or today, he strives to be about tomorrow and that is why he has longevity in his career and continues to push himself; be it on a Broadway stage, writing a new musical, making new records, starring in the West End or touring - all of this ties together for him - and its all about the music.
When asked about The Private Collection Tour, Marti said: “Playing live is about sharing a connection with your audience; be that with singing old songs, new songs, borrowed songs - I don’t care where the songs come from - its about having the best night out - pure n simple. I was just blown away by the amazing response from fans after we did our big concert tour earlier this year – and then exactly the same response after we did a couple of our Private Collection shows in a much more intimate setting – and I thought – if you all really loved those shows - then I want to come out and play these great songs and more for you. I want to hear my audience singing and laughing with me and walking away that night knowing me just that bit better.”
After the success of his last Tour – Marti put together the new concert idea of The Private Collection show. He showcased it to sold-out evenings at The Stables in Wavendon and such was their success Marti decided to turn this show into a UK wide tour in 2018. The tour is not only the confirmed dates just released but also many more British Isles concerts and festivals yet to be announced.
Marti said: “Here’s a show for those that just would love to hear an extraordinary evening of music – from the hits you love the most, with massive brass driven soul numbers to intimate acoustic ballads – and maybe a wee bit of chat along the way - we’ve got everything you love!”
