Pop Idol runner up and chart-topping music star Gareth Gates brings his acoustic duo to The Plough Arts Centre in Torrington on Friday, October 11.
The singer songwriter was the runner up to Will Young in the 2002 series of the show, but that did not stop him from going on to sell more than 3.5million records and have a string of hit singles.
His two hour set at The Plough will be followed by a free DJ Dance Night with revellers invited to boogie in the foyer until 11.30pm after the show.
Anyone with a radio in the 'noughties' will have heard Gareth Gates more than once - his cover of Unchained Melody went to number one, double platinum and sold 1.4m copies.
Other hits included Anyone of Us (Stupid Mistake), plus a double A-side Suspicious Minds/The Long and Winding Road, a duet with Pop Idol winner Will Young.
