Trevor Horn has announced that he’ll head out on a UK summer tour.

Horn will play shows in Glasgow, London, Birmingham, Manchester and Nottingham in July and August in support of his new album Trevor Horn Reimagines The Eighties, which was released last month via BMG.

The record saw Horn cover popular tracks from the decade and included a number of guests, including Marillion’s Steve Hogarth.

The tour will see Horn joined by Matt Cardle, while further special guests will be revealed in due course.

Horn says: “We have a great band, great songs and a great show. You will enjoy yourself.”

Speaking previously about the project, Horn said: “The best thing about making this album was all the fun and laughter that came from hanging out with musicians and artists that I haven’t seen for years.”

Tickets for the UK tour will go on general sale from 10am this Friday (March 8).

An interview with Trevor Horn will feature in the new issue of Prog magazine, which goes on sale tomorrow (March 5).
