P&O Cruises invites guests to join Gary Barlow on Arvia and Iona for a night they’ll never forget
P&O Cruises has today announced dates for exclusive performances by Gary Barlow on Arvia and Iona holidays in 2023.
Following sell-out performances in 2022 on board Iona, Gary will appear on the Spain, Portugal and Canary Islands cruise on Iona (G307) departing Southampton on March 18, 2023 and a Mediterranean cruise on P&O Cruises newest ship Arvia (K309) departing Southampton on April 30, 2023. There will be two exclusive performances on each cruise and all proceeds from ticket sales for the shows will be donated to Child Bereavement UK and Teenage Cancer Trust.
Gary Barlow said: “Music has been such a massive part of my life – and taken me on so many journeys and adventures. After some incredible shows with P&O Cruises last year, I can’t wait to perform on Arvia and Iona in 2023 and pass these experiences on to all the guests.”
Gary is one of Britain’s most successful songwriters and record producers. As part of the group Take That, he has won eight BRIT Awards and sold over 45 million records. Aside from his achievements with Take That, he has also co-written and produced music for other renowned artists including Dame Shirley Bassey, Sir Elton John and Robbie Williams.
Gary’s pioneering partnership with P&O Cruises as music director of The 710 Club on Arvia and Iona has already delivered a number of unique musical moments on board. Crafted to Gary’s creative vision The 710 Club showcases an eclectic range of performances, curated to appeal to British music lovers.
