Roachford’s UK tour will now take place in May and June 2021, with an additional show in Edinburgh.

Andrew Roachford MBE will also perform at Isle Of Wight Festival 2021, and will join Lionel Richie for concerts at Wrexham Racecourse and Cardiff Castle next summer.

The star is a new patron of Music Venue Trust, the charity supporting hundreds of UK grassroots music venues.

He said: “I can’t wait to get back out to play live again. It means everything to me. I have always loved playing smaller venues around the UK and often prefer seeing bands and artists play at the more intimate venues. Without these venues music in the UK will not continue to thrive”

Recent months have seen Andrew perform on Gary Barlow’s YouTube Crooner Sessions, as well as sharing the ‘Dean Street Sessions’, with his band, on YouTube.

‘Twice In A Lifetime’ is produced by Jimmy Hogarth, features members of the late Amy Winehouse’s band, and a powerful duet with ‘Queen of British soul’ Beverley Knight.
