The tour will see the iconic pop singer-songwriter bring a truly unique experience for audiences. Playing alongside the ‘Love To Love’ orchestra, shows will feature material from the iconic debut album that includes many of the most memorable tracks of a generation, such as ‘Wishing I Was Lucky’, ‘Sweet Little Mystery’, ‘Angel Eyes’ and ‘Temptation’.

The announcement follows the two fastest-selling shows of his career in London and Glasgow. After putting tickets on sale for an orchestral version of the four-times-platinum record, both shows sold out instantly – with fans demanding more.

Marti commented, “I decided if I was going to do it, it had to be something special, so I agreed to do a one-off at the London Palladium, an iconic venue. I thought it would be a great thing to do, as much for myself as for the fans.

It was the fastest-selling ticket of my career. Then the fanbase came up from Scotland and said ‘If you don’t do this in Scotland, then don’t bother coming back.’ And that was just from family. So I put that on sale in Scotland, and once again it was the fastest-selling show of my career – it sold out the same morning.

Then people demanded more shows. It’s such an exciting project for me. I’ve found it inspirational. Popped In Souled Out was my first successful record, it was my debut album, and it took me around the world. It facilitated all those dreams I had. It was the catalyst for everything.”

The arena tour also follows the successful release of Marti’s book ‘Pellow Talk’ as well as a run of sold-out spoken word shows.

The newly announced arena dates will be in celebration of the 1987 multi-million selling ‘Popped In Souled Out’ album, which established Marti and the band as one of the greatest talents to ever come out of Scotland. The record earned him a BRIT Award and four platinum discs in the UK alone.

Marti added, “To be able to do orchestrated versions, with strings, has been so inspiring. I believe that these songs are my future, not just my past. It’s the album that just keeps giving to me. I know when people hear these songs, it will take them to a time and a place. There’ll be people in the audience who fell in love to this music.”
