Gary Barlow sets to sea again on cruises to the Canaries and Med


TAKE That frontman Gary Barlow is setting to sea again – with exclusive gigs on a couple of 14-night cruises to the Canary Islands and around the Med this Spring.

He’ll be performing on P&O ships Iona and Arvia, with all the proceeds from a ticket raffle going to Child Bereavement UK and Teenage Cancer Trust.

Barlow will play Take That classics, solo songs and covers on Iona during a Spain, Portugal and Canary Islands sailing, departing from Southampton on March 18.

Then he’ll appear on the line’s newest ship, Arvia, on a Mediterranean cruise sailing from Southampton on April 30, with two gigs on each cruise.

“Music has been such a massive part of my life – and taken me on so many journeys and adventures,” says Barlow. “After some incredible shows with P&O Cruises last year, I can’t wait to perform on Arvia and Iona in 2023 and pass these experiences on to all the guests.”

One of Britain’s most successful songwriters and record producers, he has notched up eight BRIT Awards and sold more than 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.

Barlow’s pioneering partnership with P&O Cruises as music director of The 710 Club on Arvia and Iona has already delivered a number of unique musical moments on board.

The late-night venue showcases an eclectic range of performances exclusively for adults and offers an opportunity for up-and-coming musicians to get their break.

Passengers on the cruises are not guaranteed seats, and have to buy £10 raffle tickets for the chance of seeing Barlow perform. Be advised also that he will not remain onboard for the whole cruise.

The cruise to look for when booking are Spain, Portugal and Canary Islands (G307) and Mediterranean (K309). For more information see www.pocruises.com or visit a travel agent.
