Gary Barlow has been hinting he will announce a solo tour

Gary Barlow has hinted to fans that he plans to go on a solo tour later this year.

The X Factor judge wouldn't reveal details of dates or venues.

The singer replied a fan on Twitter after being asked if he would be touring: "'Are you gonna be doing solo gigs this year?? @GBarlowOfficial' *yes*."

Barlow performed two solo shows last December at London's Royal Albert Hall.

He also told fans that he would be visiting venues in the "north" and that there would be London dates as well.

The 41-year-old recently suffered tragedy after his fourth child was stillborn.

The Take That singer and his wife Dawn, named their daughter Poppy.

Barlow was one of the stars who surprised Chris Moyles during his penultimate Radio 1 breakfast show.
