Country singing sensation Nathan Carter has promised his legion of fans in Derry and the North West a night out to remember on Wednesday when he plays the Millennium Forum.
The Liverpudlian singer famed for his hit single ‘Wagon Wheel’ has already sold out the city centre theatre four times but says this week’s performance will be his biggest yet in Derry.
Speaking to the Journal from his tour bus he said: “It’s a fantastic space and the Derry audiences are great every time I play there and I’m lucky in that I’ve been able to keep coming back. This time, I’ll have a seven piece band with me.
“It’s a brand new show and the biggest production I’ve done yet. We can also promise the people of Derry something very festive too. I’ll be playing songs from the new album, Christmas Stuff and the single of the same name which is out now.”
Featuring 12 Christmas holidays themed tracks, the new album includes 10 festive favourites and 2 original songs penned by Nathan, including title track and single.
Nathan has a busy touring schedule taking him right up until the day before Christmas Eve when he’ll travel home to England to spend time with his family.
He’ll also play in Enniskillen and Omagh as well as the Bord Gais Energy Theatre in Dublin.
“It is going to be busy over the next while with a lot of promotion as well as doing radio and television but I really enjoy it. I’m so grateful for the all the support I get in Ireland. I’m particularly looking forward to playing Derry again.”
