Michael Bolton is returning to the UK next year for the 'Love Songs Greatest Hits Tour'.

The 66-year-old music legend has announced 13 dates across the country next autumn, which kick off on September 24 at the Bournemouth International Centre, and includes a stop at London's iconic Royal Albert Hall on October 9, before wrapping at Blackpool Opera House on October 22.

The tour announcement follows Michael's 'A Symphony of Hits' LP, which was released earlier this year to mark his 50th anniversary in the music business, and featured his best known recordings re-arranged and recorded with the West Australian Philharmonic Orchestra.

Speaking about the collection of classic hits, which included 'When a Man Loves a Woman' and 'The Prayer', Bolton said: ''Over the years I have had the honour to collaborate with so many of my musical heroes and I've had the pleasure of delving into diverse musical genres.

''To celebrate my 50th year in entertainment, I've selected a collection of songs that really marked the chapters in my career and it has been my dream to bring them to life with a symphony orchestra.

''As a little blue collar boy from Connecticut, I can honestly say, that if you put your gift to work and commit fully, that's when dreams come true!''
