FANS of Scottish heartthrob Marti Pellow — it may be time to take a seat.

The Wet Wet Wet frontman is returning to the Glasgow stage this week, embracing his recent career-boosting success in musical theatre with a tour of Blood Brothers.

Pellow is joining the tour for five weeks only following a run in London’s west end, playing the role of narrator.

It’s one of many parts he has acquired in the west end, on Broadway and through national tours recently, with a CV including Chicago, Jekyll and Hyde, The Witches of Eastwick and Chess.

Of course, Marti isn’t the only draw to the King’s show.

Blood Brothers is counted among the best musicals of all time, scooping a multitude of awards and touring the UK since 1995.

The show follows twin boys separated at birth then reunited by a twist of fate, and a haunting family secret.

Songs include A Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and Tell Me It’s Not True — all of which are guaranteed to have musical aficionados tapping their feet in time.

Blood Brothers is on at the King’s Theatre July 2-14. Performances 7.30pm, with a 2.30pm matinee on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Tickets £12-£29.50, available on 0844 871 7648.
