Wet Wet Wet star Marti Pellow returns to Glasgow stage in Blood Brothers

Wet Wet Wet star Marti Pellow is to reprise the role of narrator in Blood Brothers exclusively for Glasgow audiences.

The singer, starring alongside Maureen Nolan as Mrs Johnstone, will perform at the King's Theatre from November 3 to 15.

Blood Brothers tells the captivating and moving story of twin boys separated at birth, only to be reunited, by a twist of fate and a mother's haunting secret. The memorable score includes A Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and the emotionally charged hit Tell Me It's Not True.

When Mrs Johnstone, a young mother, is deserted by her husband and left to her own devices to provide for seven hungry children she takes a job as a housekeeper in order to make ends meet.

It is not long before her brittle world crashes around her when she discovers herself to be pregnant yet again - this time with twins! In a moment of weakness and desperation, she enters a secret pact with her employer which leads inexorably to the show's shattering climax. A sensational cast, incredible show stopping music, remarkable staging and five star performances make Blood Brothers an enthralling night of entertainment.

Marti Pellow, one of music's most respected artists, makes a welcome return to Blood Brothers direct from his acclaimed performance as Che in London's West End run of Evita.

For over 30 years Marti Pellow has enjoyed global success as the lead singer of Wet Wet Wet, as a solo artist, and now as one of the UK's most respected leading men of musical theatre.

Starring roles include The Witches of Eastwick, Chess, Jekyll & Hyde, Chicago and Blood Brothers.

As a solo-singer, recording artist and with Wet Wet Wet, Marti Pellow has enjoyed virtually unrivalled chart success, with over 25 hits and three of the UK's biggest number one singles, including the seminal Love Is All Around. In 2013, after 20 years apart, Wet Wet Wet reunited for a sell-out arena tour.
