The ABC frontman will bring an evening of stripped-back music and conversation to the Giffnock theatre. The intimate tour follows a sold-out tour of the UK, which included three sell-out nights at the London Palladium, and coincides with the publication of Martin Fry's autobiography.

The charismatic singer and songwriter enjoyed transatlantic success with ABC, who earned their place in pop history, from Poison Arrow to The Look of Love, from All of My Heart and Be Near Me to When Smokey Sings.

There is also an opportunity for a Meet and Greet for fans at the venue.

Martin says: “I have been very lucky in my career to have played venues around the world, from massive arenas in the States to Sheffield Town Hall in my hometown, where we marked 40 years of The Lexicon of Love. However, this tour really is something a bit different; an opportunity for stripped-back music and conversation with my fans. It will be really special, I can’t wait.”
