Gary Barlow joins Little Noise line-up
Tuesday 30 October 2012
The X Factor judge and Take That frontman leads this year’s heavyweight Little Noise Sessions line-up
Take That frontman Gary Barlow has announced that he will be headlining the opening night of this year’s Little Noise Sessions, on Monday 19 November.
Having just sold out his 17-date arena tour in a matter of minutes, Gary’s appearance at the 1,200-capacity St John-at-Hackney Church will provide fans with an unrivalled opportunity to see him in a truly intimate setting.
Mencap’s Little Noise Sessions, in association with Toshiba, bring together some of the best artists from the live music scene, to play stripped-down sets in intimate surroundings. Now in their seventh year, Little Noise Sessions are curated by BBC Radio 2 DJ Jo Whiley and take place from 19 to 25 November.
Throughout his career, Barlow has sold over 45 million records worldwide with Take That and has written an impressive 11 number one singles. If that wasn’t enough, he was awarded an OBE this year for his services to the music industry and charity – the perfect fit to kick off Mencap's Little Noise Sessions.
