You spoke and Marti listened. The brand new Greatest Hits tour is about finally being able to come together to celebrate love, life, and remember those we may have lost along the way. Most of all, it’s about enjoyment and celebrating the here and now. Get your dancing shoes on – it’s time to party with Marti!
“Throughout lockdown I was inundated by beautiful messages from fans asking me to organise a tour once we come out of these terrible times. 12 million people tuned in for the lockdown sessions and each one of you have inspired me to make this tour happen. I finally wanted to put together a show that would celebrate all the wonderful music throughout my career and that I, and I know all of you, fell in love with again through the sessions.
At a time when I could only communicate with my fans through social media platforms, you would ask me to sing songs from the beginning of my career right up to present day. It was a joy to get such great feedback from everyone and got me thinking about a Greatest Hits tour, where we could all enjoy those songs again and where I could enjoy singing them.
During the sessions I also got to cover songs from other songwriters that were either favourites of mine or suggested by you all. I think they resonated with everyone so much that I’m looking forward to including some of them in the shows. And, of course, not forgetting my new album ‘Stargazer’ that came out in March and where I finally got to write the songs that let me pay homage to all my heroes. I can’t wait to sing those songs live for the first time.”
