Gary Barlow - Gary Barlow Goes Solo For Radio 2 Concert

Subscribe Gary Barlow

Gary Barlow performed several Take That hits as he played solo at the Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park concert last night (11.09.11).

Without the aid of his bandmates, the musician - who agreed to headline at the last minute after Lionel Richie had to pull out due to illness - played 'Patience', 'Greatest Day', 'Back For Good', 'A Million Love Songs', 'Rule The World' and 'Never Forget', much to the delight of the crowd in London.

Gary - who was performing his first solo show for years - also performed an impromptu version of Lionel's hit 'Hello' and at one point quipped: "After 20 years I've reached the pinnacle of my career - Standing in for Lionel Richie."

Earlier, Will Young played a number of his hits and admitted on stage he had been feeling unwell all day, while the crowd endured heavy rain while watching James Blunt.

Other acts at the event - which was hosted by BBC Radio 2 breakfast show DJ Chris Evans - included Lenny Kravitz, Beverley Knight, Imelda May and 70s disco legends Chic.
