Will Young - Pop Idol Superstar Makes Triumphant Return to the Charts
Winner of the 2002 series of Pop Idol, this singer-songwriter has gone on to be a post-talent show success with four number one albums, two BRIT Awards and over 8 million record sales to his name. Not only that but the multi-talented star has also dipped his toe into the world of acting, leading to an Olivier Award nomination for his part in the musical Cabaret. Back in music with his sixth LP, 85% Proof, the singer has combined the electronic sounds of previous record Echoes with a new style, inspired by a change in record labels. A largely upbeat album about mindfulness, the star will be taking his new sound on The Love Revolution Tour this November. Buy your Will Young tickets at StubHub UK to experience the soulful sounds live, with all purchases assured by our FanProtect Guarantee.
Will Young Biography - Singer Set for Success from an Early Age
Born to an affluent family in Berkshire, the singer expressed an interest in the arts from a young age, performing with theatre clubs and successfully becoming a member of a new boyband, manufactured by TV show This Morning, at 20 years old. Despite the group never fully getting off the ground, the star persevered, auditioning for talent show Pop Idol a year later and impressing the judges with his wide ranging falsetto, but maybe not so much with his dance moves! Believed to be the underdog in the competition the artist made it to the final with Gareth Gates and shocked 13.3 million viewers by leaving the show victorious. His winner's single 'Evergreen' went straight to the top of the charts and became the fastest selling debut in chart history.
The following years were of equal success, with records like 'Leave Right Now' and 'All Time Love' topping the singles charts and leading to multiple BRIT nominations. He even managed to squeeze in a performance with Elton John at his O2 Arena New Year show. Experimentations with different genres followed and by 2011 the singer had gone down a more electronic route with album Echoes. Adding to his repertoire with a spot of acting in films such as Mrs. Henderson Presents, the past few years have been busy ones. Now returning to his roots with new album 85% Proof, he's well worth seeing live in concert.
