Cowes resident Mike Christie, one fourth of vocal harmony group G4, is delighted to be bringing the group's 20th anniversary tour home to the Isle of Wight.

The "Kings of Popera" are performing 70 shows around the UK for their anniversary and by the time they finish their Christmas tour they will have played 100 dates, including two on the Island.

They also have a new album out, in which the vocals were recorded at a studio in Chale. It is entitled 20, marking two decades since they rose to fame on the X Factor. Click here to listen and scroll down to watch the music video, featuring the Chale studio.

The album features their take on modern hits by the likes of Olivia Rodrigo, Miley Cyrus and Billie Eilish, as well as the type of soaring ballads and theatrical showstoppers their fans have come to expect.
