It has been a terrible week for all of us and your warm words have given his wife, who is also a member of my orchestra, my colleagues and me so much strength.” Rescheduled Dates are: Monday 6th March (replaces 19/12) and Tuesday 7th March (replaces 20/12) at The SSE Arena, Wembley, London Tuesday 21st March at The Manchester Arena, Wednesday 22nd March at The Genting Arena, Birmingham Thursday 23rd March at Motorpoint Arena, Nottingham Friday 24th March at The SSE Hydro, Glasgow.
