Barlow isn’t stopping here, he’s keen for more!
I left the stage a very happy man and now can’t wait to perform A different stage again – and again – and again

Cheryl’s husband is a Barlow convert. He’ll be going again.
@GaryBarlow My hubby was unsure about the idea of the show at first, but 5mins in, he leant over and said “This is really good!!” By the end, absolutely loved it!! Fantastic afternoon, emotional, raw and hilarious!! Thankyou!! #adifferentstage
