Gareth burst onto the scene in 2002, when he came second to Will Young on the first series of Pop Idol.
Quickly signed to Simon Cowell's BMG label, the young singer went on to sell 3.5 million records in the UK.
He has made headlines this week after splitting with his ex-fiancee Faye Brookes. The couple got engaged in January.
Mr Calver said Greshams has a variety of events planned for the next 16 months.
