Demand has been so high for tickets to see pop singing sensation Gary Barlow perform in Cornwall that an extra date has been added.

The Take That singer, who also performs solo, announced earlier this week that he would be coming to the Hall for Corwnall in Truro this September, as part of his A Different Stage tour.

General tickets went on sale today, having been on priority booking previously, and demand has been described as "exceptional."

The initial two days of Tuesday, September 27 and Wednesday, September 28 had already been extended to include Wednesday, September 29 but now Saturday, October 1 at 7.30pm has also been added to the line up.

Announcing the extra date via email at midday today (Friday), Hall for Cornwall said: "We have been blown away by the exceptional demand for these shows at Hall for Cornwall. Gary has now decided to release an additional show!

"If you haven't already, now's your chance to grab tickets to see one of Britain’s most successful songwriters and record producers."

Tickets for all four shows are said to be 'very limited availability' already. They are available to book online or via the box office, which is open until 4p.

Under 14s must be accompanied by an adult and there is a maximum of four tickets per customer. Tickets are not transferable and may not be sold, resold or offered for sale directly by customers.

Acclaimed singer, songwriter, composer and producer, Gary Barlow has today announced brand new shows Truro for A Different Stage, his theatrical one-man stage show telling his story, in his words.

Julien Boast, CEO and creative director at Hall for Cornwall, which underwent a three-year, multi-million transformation before reopening last October, said: “This is an amazing coup for us. We always said that our brand new Cornwall Playhouse auditorium would see us attract even bigger shows, and they don’t come much bigger than Gary Barlow. We’re thrilled and delighted."

Created by Gary and his long-time friend and collaborator Tim Firth, A Different Stage sees Gary narrate the journey of his life alongside the music from his incredible discography. In a project unlike anything he’s ever done before, Gary will take the audience behind the curtain, with nothing off limits in this special performance.

Gary said: “Now I've done shows where it has just been me and a keyboard. I've done shows where I sit and talk to people. I've done shows where I've performed as part of a group. But this one, well, it’s like all of those, but none of them. When I walk out this time, it's going to be a very different stage altogether.”

Gary Barlow is one of Britain’s most successful songwriters and record producers. As part of the group Take That, he has won eight BRIT Awards and sold over 45 million records. Aside from his achievements with Take That, he has also co-written and produced music for other renowned artists including Dame Shirley Bassey, Sir Elton John and Robbie Williams.

In more recent years, Gary has also turned his attention to the world of theatre, composing the score for the hugely successful production of ‘Finding Neverland’; working alongside Tim Firth on ‘Calendar Girls The Musical’; and collaborating with Tim and his Take That bandmates on ‘The Band’, a record-breaking stage musical currently being adapted into a feature film.
