For the generation which grew up in the 1990s, the name Marti Pellow needs no introduction.
Now the Wet Wet Wet frontman is heading to the Churchill Theatre in Bromley next month for the finale of a short tour promoting his eighth solo album.
The Scot, who rose to prominence with the band through hits such as Love is All Around, said that he is delighted to be returning to the Churchill, having appeared there in the panto Jekyll and Hyde in 2010.
As charming and engaging as ever, Pellow said: “It’s a lovely little venue and I can’t wait to go back.
“Sometimes I prefer small, intimate atmospheres instead of big arenas and I’m lucky that my music allows me to play both.”
The inspiration for his new album, Hope, which was released on March 3, comes from Pellow’s love of musical theatre. He believes the songs will prove entertaining and informative for the audience.
“Those are my two main aims. It’s a hard balance to strike between educating and entertaining, but I must be doing something right to still be making music.
“I still love performing. The buzz it gives you is amazing.”
He will be at the Churchill on Monday, April 8, at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £33.50. Visit atgtickets.com to book and for more details.
