CLYDEBANK singer Marti Pellow has announced an arena tour for 2024.

The former Wet Wet Wet star will bring his new ‘Popped In Souled Out’ tour to Glasgow in March next year after answering a call from fans.

Popped In Souled Out was the name of the Bankie band's debut platinum album, released in 1987, that included songs such as Wishing I Was Lucky, Sweet Little Mystery and Angel Eyes (Home and Away).

It reached number one in the UK album charts.

The artist's decision to go on tour follows the two fastest-selling shows of his career – at the legendary London Palladium and Glasgow’s SEC Armadillo.

He put tickets on sale for an orchestral version of the four-times-platinum record and both shows sold out instantly – with fans demanding more.

Marti said: “I decided if I was going to do it, it had to be something special, so I agreed to do a one-off at the London Palladium, an iconic venue. I thought it would be a great thing to do, as much for myself as for the fans.

“It was the fastest-selling ticket of my career. Then the fanbase came up from Scotland and said ‘If you don’t do this in Scotland, then don’t bother coming back'. That was just from family. So I put that on sale in Scotland, and once again it was the fastest-selling show of my career – it sold out the same morning.

“Then people demanded more shows.

"It’s such an exciting project for me. I’ve found it inspirational.

"Popped In Souled Out was my first successful record, it was my debut album, and it took me around the world. It facilitated all those dreams I had.

"It was the catalyst for everything.”

The arena tour follows the successful release of Marti’s book, Pellow Talk, and a run of spoken word shows, all of which also sold out.

And it will see him bring a truly unique experience for audiences, playing alongside the ‘Love To Love’ orchestra.

He will visit Glasgow's OVO Hydro on March 16, 2024 with tickets going on sale on Friday, March 31 at 9am.
