The Private Collection Tour 2018
Having achieved the highest accolades with one of the most successful bands in UK pop history, MARTI PELLOW is now achieving that rare position of a highly successful career as both a solo artist and as a leading musical theatre star.
This is a career that has so far seen a record for the longest Number One in UK chart history, one of the four biggest selling songs in the UK of all time, consistent chart topping multi-platinum album sales, the honour of having the White House proclaim a day be named after him, the breaking of box office records, the starring in huge hit musical theatre productions in London’s West End and on Broadway in New York, the playing to hundreds of thousands on international Arena tours, the selling out of intimate jazz clubs. It’s a career of monumental achievement and at the heart of all this is the uncompromising dedication and passion of the singer songwriter Marti Pellow.
The BRIT and Ivor Novello award-winning singer-songwriter first came to our attention as the lead singer of Wet Wet Wet. As both a solo artist and with Wet Wet Wet, Marti has had consistent chart-topping multi-platinum albums; with over 25 chart hits and three of the UK’s biggest number-one singles, including: ‘Goodnight Girl’ and the iconic ‘Love Is All Around’. Marti’s platinum-selling solo career has taken him from, his love of working with Willie Mitchell, to Memphis for Moonlight Over Memphis; to iconic Seventies love songs, Love to Love; his highly acclaimed jazz album, Sentimental Me; his tribute to the great songs of Broadway and the West End, Hope, his self-penned country influenced southern-soul album Boulevard of Life, and his 2015 album: Love To Love Volume Two – a string-soaked homage to some of the most romantic love songs ever written.
In the world of musical theatre, Marti has performed from Broadway to Tokyo and in many starring roles in London’s West End in shows like the record breaking tour of The Witches of Eastwick, the concert and cinema production of Chess (alongside US legends Josh Groban and Idina Menzel), Jekyll & Hyde, Blood Brothers as well as taking the West End and Broadway by storm in Chicago. Last year he toured and then returned to the West End as Che in the award-winning smash hit production of Evita earning a nomination for What On Stage Awards’ Best Actor.
In concert, Marti has brought his own music to audiences throughout the world: from Madison Square Gardens to intimate residencies at Ronnie Scotts; to the UK’s biggest free concert on Glasgow Green to dueting with Joe Cocker, Elton John and Mark Knopfler.
In 2017, Marti released his new solo album Mysterious which was recorded at Ocean Way studios in Los Angeles.
