The Sun reports that the singer admitted that he wanted to restart the solo career he gave up to work with the band again on 2010’s ‘Progress’ album.
He said: “The gigs have been absolutely amazing – the best period of my career so far with those boys. Sharing it with somebody is much better than doing it by yourself, but then ego, want, need and a whole heap of other things kick in.
“And you start preparing for your own tour… and the other boys are going away for a bit and I don’t really know what’s on the cards with them. But we have to ride again, we have to – it’s too much fun.”
Last month the singer admitted he would be doing a solo tour again.
On his blog he wrote: “There will be a solo tour and I’m not sure where I’ll be going yet.”
He added: “I am aware that there is a perception in certain quarters and I’m enjoying throwing that perception down people’s throats when I jump through the wall on L.M.E.Y [‘Let Me Entertain You’].
“I’ve never felt more on my game and it’s thanks, in part, to the naysayers. They put fire in my belly and, in turn, a smile on my face. When the tickets go on sale for my next tour I think we’ll see what ‘dwindling’ looks like.”
His last solo album was 2010’s ‘best of’ ‘In And Out Of Consciousness: Greatest Hits 1990–2010’.
