Soft Cell frontman Marc Almond will be accompanying Jools for tour. In his 36-year career, Marc has sold more than 30 million records worldwide with his list of hit songs including Say Hello, Wave Goodbye, Touch and, of course, Tainted Love.

He has also collaborated with the likes of Gene Pitney, Tony Visconti and Burt Bacharach, as well as Jools, who Marc previously toured with in 2014. He was awarded an OBE this year for his services to arts and culture.

Also performing with Jools will be the supremely talented vocalists Ruby Turner and Louise Marshall as well as original Squeeze member Gilson Lavis on drums with the Rhythm & Blues Orchestra.
