We are thrilled to be linking up with Matt again, especially as he's in so much demand across the worldJohn Barber


Speaking ahead of the tour Foden's John Barber told 4BR: "We are thrilled to be linking up with Matt again, especially as he's in so much demand across the world.

His performances with the likes of the John Wilson, Halle, Philharmonia, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, CBSO and Syd Lawrence Orchestras have made him an essential 'must see' attraction, and we're delighted that these concerts will feature a number of new arrangements arranged especially for Foden's and Matt."
