In 2018 he dueted with Kylie Minogue on ‘Golden’ and this year, the husky voiced singer has moved from strength to strength, making 2019 his biggest year yet. His latest No 1 album ‘Singing to Strangers’ includes work with legendary Bob Dylan and this headline slot is a great addition to his long list of well earned achievements.
