Multi-award winning singer Will Young is bringing his new tour to the Isle of Wight later this year.

To mark the release of his new album Light It Up, the Pop Idol winner is performing at Shanklin Theatre.

The Leave Right Now star will be hoping fans do the opposite when he performs in September.

Described as the 'most intimate tour yet', the evening promises acoustic performances, stories and conversation.

The 50-date UK tour will kick off in September through to November.

Speaking about the tour, Will said: “I’m very excited to be going to a lot of places I haven’t been.

"I wanted to go to smaller venues so I could properly get around the country rather than just playing the big cities.”

Will is showcasing his new album, Light it Up, which is out on August 9.

He released the first single from it last week, Falling Deep.

Tickets for the Shanklin gig go on general sale on April 26.

The show takes place on Friday, September 20 at 7.30pm.
