As this Friday’s release of his new studio album ‘Come Fly With Me’ approaches, global superstar Peter Andre can now announce details of a major UK arena and theatre tour that includes a mammoth show at The O2 in London. The news of the ‘Come Swing With Me’ tour also coincides with Peter’s participation on the current celeb-packed series of Strictly Come Dancing.
The tour will see Peter Andre backed by his live band that can effortlessly mash-up swing with fresh versions of his older hits and other pop classic. It’s a show that promises to bring the authentic swingin’ sounds of the Rat Pack classics that feature on ‘Come Fly With Me’ to life, from the rhythmic diction of Peter’s vocals through to live percussion and a full brass section.
“’Performing live on stage is what I love doing best” says Peter. “Hopefully if you come to see my show you’ll be impressed. I have put so much effort into production and choreography, we have a great team working with us. Please come and enjoy a wonderful evening with me. See you soon.”

Inspired in part by the 100th anniversary of Frank Sinatra’s birth, ‘Come Fly With Me’ is full of Peter’s takes on Rat Pack standards including the album title track ‘Come Fly With Me’, ‘Mac The Knife’ and ‘Ain’t That A Kick In The Head’.
The album features the talents of producer Nick Southwood (Oscar-nominated for the song ‘Lost Stars’ which was performed by Adam Levine, Maroon 5 and Keira Knightley), bassist Adam King (collaborator with jazz legends Peter King and Stan Tracey), drummer Adrian Meehan (Robbie Williams) and keyboardist Rich Milner (James Morrison, Morcheeba).
It’s been twenty years since Peter Andre was first catapulted into the public consciousness with his global hit ‘Mysterious Girl’. It’s been a remarkable journey: three chart-topping #1 singles; a further seven Top 10 hits; and Platinum, Gold and Silver certifications for seven of his albums to date. And that’s before we even consider his ability to fill large scale venues such as The O2 and Manchester Arena plus London’s The SSE Arena Wembley.
