Peter Andre - Come Swing With Me Tour
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 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 Arena, Wembley Arena and the Royal Albert Hall.
Now Peter is set to embark upon a new stage in his recording career with the October 16th release of his new album ‘Come Fly With Me’. It’s his first release under a new deal with East West Records / Warner Music. The album coincides with Peter’s participation on the new celeb-packed series of Strictly Come Dancing.
Inspired in part by the 100th anniversary of Frank Sinatra’s birth, ‘Come Fly With Me’ is full of Peter’s takes on RatPack standards including the album title track ‘Come Fly With Me’, ‘Mac The Knife’ and ‘Ain’t That A Kick In The Head’. Peter has created a collection of songs which is rich in authentic swingin’ sounds, from the rhythmic diction of his vocals through to live percussion and a full brass section.

The album features the talents of producer Nick Southwood (Oscar-nominated for the song ‘Lost Stars’ which was performed by AdamLevine, 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).
