This event has been and gone.
Following a sold out tour in 2015, Grammy Award winning Michael Bolton will return to the UK in April 2016 to perform his greatest hits and for the very first time a selection of songs from his new album celebrating music from the movies.
Apart from nine No.1 singles, selling more than 60 million records worldwide and receiving countless other honours, Michael has written songs with musicians from Bob Dylan to Lady Gaga and penned hits recorded by stars such as Barbra Streisand, Cher, Kiss and Kanye West / Jay-Z. Michael was recently featured in the Emmy nominated Saturday Night Live video ‘Jack Sparrow’ that went on to become a viral sensation racking up over 140 million views to date and currently has a TV series in development with ABC for a scripted comedy in which he would star.
Michael recently released his memoir, The Soul of It All: My Music My Life in which he offers a backstage pass into a fascinating life journey from anonymity to a world-renowned music career. He remains committed to humanitarian causes, especially through the Michael Bolton Charities as well as other social and political organisations.
If that wasn’t enough Michael Bolton also just completed a documentary film entitled Gotta Keep Dreamin about the 21st Century Renaissance of Detroit. His last studio album, 'Ain’t No Mountain High Enough: A Tribute to Hitsville USA', which reached No3 on the Billboard R&B chart, was an authentic approach to Motown and soulful classics, as well as original songs written in the same vein.
Michael’s brand new tour follows the concept of music and movies. As well as performing his greatest hits, he will be performing beloved songs from the soundtracks of iconic films such as The BodyGuard, Casablanca, Stand by Me, Risky Business, The Wizard of Oz and many more.

Michael continues to tour the world every year, all while writing, recording and taping for a wide array of projects spanning music, film, television and branded entertainment.
