Straight off the heels of performing on Strictly Come Dancing, Peter Andre announces he is heading back on the road and and coming to Cardiff next year at the Motorpoint arena.
The tour will see Peter Andre backed by his live band that can effortlessly mash-up swing with fresh versions of his older hits and other pop classic. It’s a show that promises to bring the authentic swingin’ sounds of the Rat Pack classics that feature on ‘Come Fly With Me’ to life, from the rhythmic diction of Peter’s vocals through to live percussion and a full brass section.
“’Performing live on stage is what I love doing best” says Peter. “Hopefully if you come to see my show you’ll be impressed. I have put so much effort into production and choreography, we have a great team working with us. Please come and enjoy a wonderful evening with me. See you soon.”
Tickets go on sale from 9am on Thursday October 15th. Priced from £27.50 + booking fee
Inspired in part by the 100th anniversary of Frank Sinatra’s birth, ‘Come Fly With Me’ is full of Peter’s takes on Rat Pack standards including the album title track ‘Come Fly With Me’, ‘Mac The Knife’ and ‘Ain’t That A Kick In The Head’. Peter has created a collection of songs which is rich in authentic swingin’ sounds, from the rhythmic diction of his vocals through to live percussion and a full brass section.
The album features the talents of producer Nick Southwood (Oscar-nominated for the song ‘Lost Stars’ which was performed by Adam Levine, Maroon 5 and Keira Knightley), bassist Adam King(collaborator with jazz legends Peter King and Stan Tracey), drummer Adrian Meehan (RobbieWilliams) and keyboardist Rich Milner (James Morrison, Morcheeba).
“All of these songs are great great classics,” says Peter. “The fact that we’re celebrating hundred years of Frank Sinatra makes the choice even better because you can start to pick some of the favourites that Franky was really well-known for. When you listen to these old classics, you realise what real music is.”
Music is the core strand in Peter’s range of activities. There are also his television projects – PeterAndre’s 60 Minute Makeover, a series of documentaries which proved to be the UK’s biggest reality TV show for ten consecutive series, and Sunday Scoop to name but a few, with more to come – as well as his charity work which includes the launch of the Peter Andre Fund in support of Cancer Research UK, plus support for Nordoff Robins, the NSPCC, Cauldwell Children and Health Improvement Project Zanzibar.
