NEIGHBOURS legend Alan Fletcher, best known for playing Dr Karl Kennedy, will be bringing his latest tour to Worcester. 

The Neighbours star, who is also a well-known Americana musician, will play at The Marrs Bar on Saturday, July 20. 

The Australian entertainer has become a household name after Dr Kennedy became the longest-running character on Neighbours, with Mr Fletcher starring on the soap for almost 30 years.  

His latest tour, Alan Fletcher and Special Friends will feature his comedic new single 'For The Love of Lager.'

The tour begins next month and will see Mr Fletcher hit pubs all over the UK and Ireland when the tour begins next month.

He said: "I chose this way of life when I was a teenager, I always wanted to be a successful creative and after all these years I still have the same love of what I do and the connection to people.

"For the Love of Lager is a love letter from me as an Aussie beer drinker to others who know what they love and they love what they know. I can't wait to take it on the road and have a laugh with the crowds.

"On tour, I love the personal engagement with the fans and meeting them at my gigs is part of the experience. 

"We share the excitement in the build-up, I invite fans to tell me which venue they will be coming to via Facebook. I know some fans' birthdays and when they got married. That relationship is special to me."

Support on all headline shows will be provided by Melbourne Americana artist Riley Catherall.

Mr Fletcher's wife, Jennifer Hansen, will be playing the keyboard.

Alan added: "This time around I have a full band and that's really changing the vibe. We are visiting some exceptional venues and cities.

"I'm looking forward to exploring the UK together once again. 

"I feel blessed to be performing and meeting with fans after all these years. 

"The measure for me is the moment you stop enjoying it you just stop. But I can't see that day coming for me."
