Irish superstar Nathan Carter will be visiting Swindon's Wyvern Theatre towards the end of October.

Over the last 10 years, Irish entertainer Nathan Carter is said to have become one of the UK’s most prolific touring artists.

He has performed over 300 concerts with his band, bringing back old-fashioned musicianship that has become his signature trademark.

Next month, Carter will bring his show back to the UK for a run of over 35 dates, with more to be announced still. 

The tour will kick off on 21 September in Inverness, and runs through March, including a special St Patrick's Day concert in Birmingham, as well as his annual London Palladium show.

He will play at Swindon's Wyvern Theatre on 26 October, at 7.30pm.

Born in Liverpool to Irish parents from County Down, Nathan Carter has released nine studio albums and four live albums. He performs pop, Irish folk, country music and ballads.

With tracks such as ‘Wagon Wheel’ and ‘I Wanna Dance’ receiving hit status, he is one of Ireland’s biggest artists, who has outsold One Direction, Pharrell Williams and Michael Buble. He also became the first Irish country act to reach #1 in the Irish charts in 2013 after Garth Brooks, six years before. 

A spokesperson for the artist added: "Growing up in a house where Country and Western music filled the air, Nathan was exposed to the classic songs of Johnny Cash, Don Williams and Dolly Parton which firmly rooted themselves in his musical DNA.

"From the tender age of 4 years old, not only learning to play guitar, piano and accordion, which plays a vital part in his live show, Nathan quickly became head chorister in the Liverpool Boys choir where he toured the world ……and even performed in front of the Pope in Rome!"
